Okay, Beth! Just make the check out to Spirit Trail!

To everybody who is worried about the safety of their email address and their computer: remember that Dougie and Marry cannot harvest addresses by spamming KR. That's why Clara has the Forum set up the way she does (see her original post for the explanation).

If you're having other spam/phishing/computer problems, they weren't caused by this one incident. If you think something has "invaded" your computer, I recommend running Spybot, which is a free download. Make sure your virus protection is up to date, too.

This must be a nightmare for Clara, or extremely annoying, at the very least.

I think this is just a plot to give Clara gray hair and wrinkles so she doesn't look anything like her pictures on this thread.

Word of caution--those paypal and ebay emails that threaten dire consequences if your information isn't updated are phishing. Forward them to spoof@ebay.com and spoof@paypal.com. You'll get an email back confirming that they were fraudulent NEVER EVER use the links in emails like that to update your information. (This goes for credit card and bank emails too).

If you want to check out the status of an account after you've gotten an email, use a URL that you already have for the site or google it. The links in these emails do not lead to where they say they do.

(I know the above is obvious, but DH recently fell for one of these schemes. We had to change every password and every account.)
