Hello,

So, today, I decided to go through my spam mail just to see an email from a "Favour Johnson" that read:
"Hello my dear,
My name is favour, i saw your contact today here in (www.naturallycurly.com) and became interested in you, i will also like to know you more, and i want you to send an email to my email address so i can give you my picture for you to know whom i am. I believe we can move from here!
(Remember the distance or colour does not matter but love matters a lot in life)
Thanks.
Yours,
favour"
How on earth did someone get my email address and loads of other people on here's too. I never made me email address public on here so this is rather disturbing.

Can you do something about this 'cause I don't feel comfortable getting such emails from people and I do not want just anyone getting my personal email address?

Thank you.
~Samantha

p.s I tried sending this to you several times via the 'contact us' page an always got an error message.
Things I use: Olive Oil, Canola oil, rosemary oil, aloe vera gel, shea butter, mayonnaise, eggs, milk, bananas

Everything I use is 100% natural. I make most of them myself because then I'm sure what's in it and I'm sure nothing's added, it's pure, it's natural.

Things I avoid: Mineral oil (codename: Baby oil), heat (I'm a total, no hair driers, no straighteners, no curling irons, no flat irons, no hot combs...nada), sodium chloride

Growing plan: At least 6 inches longer in a year.
If I click on your name, I can see "Send Email to SammySingally" as one of the options. You can turn this off by going to your User CP.

User CP -> Edit Options-> uncheck "Receive Email from Other Members"

I don't know if that's how you were contacted by the creepy spammer, but it's probably something you want to do anyway.

Each time Ive clicked on "View My Public Profile," I don't see anything about sending me an email all I see is to send me a message (a pm), I click on it, and it's the normal thing for like sending messages to people on this site, not emails.
Anyways, I went to my user CP to make sure "receive emails from other members" is unchecked.

Actually if you click on your name when you are inside a thread, there is a drop down menu that shows it. Btw, an email can be sent, but the sender cannot see your email address. The sender's email address is available to the recipient.

Also, they might have gone from naturally curly to your blog, and gotten your email there. That is if your naturally curly email is the same one that's on your blog. It might be smart to get a new email for blog emails. Your email is on naturallycurly here:

Curly Hair Q&A: How Do I Combat Dandruff?

In the comment section, so a web crawler could pick that up. I would bet that's where the spammer who emailed you got your email. If you Google your email address, you can see places where your email is publicly listed where spammers can get it. You can then edit your accounts so it doesn't show up.
