The Resilience Hub & Portland Maine Permaculture Message Board › Verify your Meetup account email may be phishing
I just received an email (below), as did my wife telling me I need to verify my Meetup account email. Has anyone else received this?
Warning: This may be a case of what's known as phishing, where someone is trying to get personal info (of even just an email address so they can spam you).
I don't know if Meetup is really asking or not, but my email went right into the trash.
Email I received:
Meetup received a request to join The Portland Maine
Permaculture Meetup Group. Your account will not be created
until you click the following link:
http://permaculture.m.... [link intentionally broken by Ted]
If you're unable to click the link above, copy and paste it
into your web browser. If you're unable to do that, reply to
this email and say you had trouble "verifying your email
The Team at Meetup HQ
(If you did not request a Meetup account, please ignore this
message. You'll receive one follow-up email in 24 hours, but
after that you won't hear from us again.)
I haven't gotten that message...probable best to not respond or open it!
