Several days ago, I noticed in my Yahoo email, a "failure notice" that an email had failed to go through to some addresses. The only thing was, I hadn't sent the email. It was a generic recommendation for the recipients to go to "www.bailecn.com" for electronics purchases (which I would heartily recommend NOT doing!). This was sent to everyone in my Yahoo address book.
Why I post it here- upon googling that website, I find some other mentions of similar incidents. But curiously, they are from Bentrideronline and teamestrogen- other bicycling sites! So in some way, this scam is targeting people with bicycling connections- maybe harvesting emails from here???
Anyway, in the meantime- be sure your address book is backed up, because it gets deleted when this happens. Put your own email in your address book, so if this happens, you'll know about it.
