I had no idea my email address was public... How do I turn this off?

I am not happy that someone got my personal email address...

 How do I trun my Location, Email, and all information in my profile OFF???

Also, there needs to be a way to talk privately to forum administrators...

Here is the email:

I got this same exact email too. I was very surprised. It is not a Logos forum user and not actually someone propositioning you. It's a spammer. I have no idea how they got your email address, because it is not public.

I will contact Logos and see what they can say about how this could have happened.

Anybody else receive this email?

Don;t know why you two are upset. Most people have to pay a social networking service to find potential persons-of-interest.  How did you get it for free? Broken Heart

The structural content of the email looks like a fishing scam of foreign origin. 

You can check the header of the email and determine where it originated.

I got the same message as well. But I deleted it immediately.

I googled the "reply-to" email address that was in the message and it is a known scammer (apparently one of those Nigerian email scams, where they try to strike up a relationship with you and then get you to send them money). I know how to deal with these things, delete them, of course. But it is still disturbing that all our email addresses got out. I wonder if the Logos forum user database got hacked?

Also got this. Flagged it as junk. I'm a bit surprised by what looks like a breach. Hopefully, Logos can get on top of this and make sure it doesn't happen again.

EDIT: BTW, I do not have this web site set up to email me anything at any time. Nor do I email into this forum, nor even use an RSS fee for it. I only access it directly from the internet. So how did my email address get to them?

Yes, this is rather worrying. The email didn't originate from Logos' servers, which means that somehow they got my email address. In my case it's theoretically possible it was harvested manually (my email address is not hard to find out with a bit of work), but if you've all had emails as well, that does make a hack at least a possible scenario.

For a while I also have being receiving these offer via email, I was rather surprise at first until I realised what it was.

And I also got this email as well.

Actually, don't think I got it, unless it went to already emptied junk folder.  Let us know when you hear from Logos, Rosie

I got this and quickly deleted it. I am concerned about CC info now... Logos?

Every other forum I have ever participated in has allowed people to PM (personal message) a forum administrator... We need this ability.

I thought he might be disappointed because he was left out.  Someone must have known what he was really like.

Could it be they got it from some archived newsgroups perhaps?

Just checked my spam folder, this email wasn't there.

I didn't do the old newsgroups btw.

I never used the old newsgroups, but I did get the email. And the email address that this spam was sent to is one I've only ever given out to Logos. I create separate email addresses for each organization I do business with for this very reason. I've never posted it on the forum, so it must have been hacked.

I wonder if the user database has been compromised, or if communications (forum log in and/or L4 log in and synchronization) are being hacked...
