Just curious if this is a dodgy email or not. Two friends emailed me this and I hope they haven't been suckered into something.

I believe it's dodgy as it's not possible to be able to check who's blocked or deleted you. I wouldn't trust it.

I went there, it asked me for my pword and then it showed me the people who blocked me which also included those online strangely enough

I have had around 20 of those, 6 today, I just junk them, not even worth a second look.

Here is one I haven't deleted yet.

Its sites like this that probably gathered the information behind the leak on the front page.

First time I've received them. Well, I emailed the two people who seem to have fallen for it and told them to change their password and security question asap.

It is dodgy. Some people I know followed the link and had to enter their username/password. Couple weeks later their own account was spamming the same message but from their own account.

Please don't fall for it. It propagates enough spam as it is :)

I got one the other day from a friend.

Its an obvious fake. Especially as the friend of mine doesnt type or even speak that good English, so the fact it was better English than she would usually give, was a bit of a give away.
