    Weird VMK Email

    I got an email from vmk (supposedly) and they asked me for my IP Address, is this a scam? im not sending it because i only have 6 more days till we get home and i can get on, it's really weird.

    Anyone know what is up?

    don't send it!
    anything w/ VMK asking for any personal info is a scam.

    ADD ME.[:


    WHAT I'VE LEARNED FROM MICECHAT...
    1. IF YOU APPRECIATE SOMETHING THAT ISN'T THE MAJORITY OPINION, YOU'RE NOT WANTED HERE.
    2. IF THERE'S CHIPPED PAINT IN THE QUEUE FOR A LINE, EXPECT SOMEONE TO WRITE OUT A BIG STORY BASHING IT. WOOHOO.
    3. IF YOU'RE UNDER THE AGE OF 24, YOU'RE AN 'EISNER BRAT.'
    4. PEOPLE WHO ARE DEEMED AS 'MODERATORS' AND OTHER ADMINISTRATION ARE MORE IMPORTANT DIETIES THAN JESUS CHRIST.
    5. YOU CAN EXCPECT TO BE BADLY REPPED IF YOU TRY AND MAKE A SERIOUS POINT.
    6. YOU ARENT TAKEN SERIOUS IF YOU'RE UNDER THE AGE OF 16.
    7. AS AN ADD-ON TO #6, YOU SHOULD BE TREATED AS A SUBORDINATEIF YOU ARE IN A THEME PARK WAITING 30 MINUTES IN LINE FOR A DRINK WHILE SOMEONE HAS TO RECOUNT PIZZAS.
    8. "Disney may not care to hear your comments, but we do." WTFFF??? THIS ISN'T A DISNEY FAN FORUM, IT'S A DISNETY BASHING SITE.
    9. CERTAIN PEOPLE OVER ANALYZE A SIMPLE THREAD AND CONSIDER IT TO BE A CONTRACT FULL OF LOOPHOLES THAT HE/SHE CAN GET AROUND.
    AND FINALLY...
    10. PROLONGED USE OF THIS SITE CAN CAUSE AN EXTREME HATE OF DISNEY AND ALL DISNEY RELATED THINGS.

    yeah if u give them ur IP address it will give them basically a walk way to hacking into your computer. It isn't to difficult after you give them that.

    I'm going with the scam scenario too. I would suggest that you copy and paste ALL of it into CONTACT US and NOT respond to the e-mail at all.

    Re: Weird VMK Email

    I also have to go with the scam side, but why would they want her IP address.? Is there a way to hack into someone's IP address and take their login info...?

    Re: Weird VMK Email

    I really think that the person who emailed her had no intentions of hacking her vmk file other then using it as a way of making it seem more real. I think the E-mailer wanted into your system (computer) so they could get personal info bout you. Just stay away from those types of E-mails. Even opening them could land you a straight virus quickly. It could shut your computer down immidiatley without any way of it recovering.
    !BE VERY CAREFUL AND WATCH WHAT E-MAILS YOU OPEN!

    Hope this helps explain it a little better.

    If u think it might be dangerous. Use your instinct. Well done for asking other people about what you should do, rather than going ahead with it. As it says on the vmk site. If a member of staff asks u for log in informaion, do not reply. Thats just the same as an email going to you about yout IP adress.
    Merry Christmas
