It has come to my attention that someone is sending out threatening spoof e-mails saying they are from pennyauctionwatch, only one site owner has reported this. Please let me know if you have received anything like this.
Thank you

I believe that the more penny auction bidders that come together and post their honest experiences, exposing the shady-scam penny auction sites, the less and less shady-scam sites will stop being the majority in the penny auction industry. Stand with me.

Is this spoof email directed at sites owners only?
I used to be a powerbidder, but now I just make mental bids. That’s how I lost my mind.

I do not know, I don't know how anyone got this site owners email address, we're checking server logs now to find out if someone hacked the email account to find this out so far I have only heard about this from one site owner. :-/

No that is not what I am talking about, there is someone e-mailing from admin at pennyauctionwatch dot com, very nasty threatening stuff, but they may have hacked to get the email address that they did, still waiting to hear back on that.

I will put myself out there. If admin wishes to delete this that is fine. I received spoof emails which contained threats, lies, manipulations, etc
If someone has an issue I will be more than happy to speak with you.

But threats to my site and threats to spread incorrect information will NOT be tolerated
Once we find out who you are, you will not be able to hide behind spoofing
I notified admin of this board only because you used information that was sensitive to this website

You have no idea all of the drama that goes on in the penny auction world, penny auction reality TV coming soon? Or something, I don't know.. long day-normal day.
