I just received notification through Digital Dream Book that states, "My name is Rejoice please contact me at ( rejoicesow55@gmail.com ) i have something very important i want to discuss with you through email address because not regular here okay" I Googled the email address and it's from a scammer. This person always sends the same message. I did not respond to the person. I can't find a way to contact Digital Dream Book so I've posted here.

I got the same email. Mine said at the bottom if this is spam, forward it to Abigail@thedigitaldreambook.com.

Earlier today a real person who went by Rejoice (rejoicesow55@gmail.com), created an account on the site. The account was set up very legitimately, with contact information and so forth, which is why she got past our security. She then proceeded to manually select other members and message each individually through our internal messaging system, which allows site members to speak to each other privately.

Since she did not have access to user email addresses she had to use the messaging system to ask for members to email her back to try to collect them. As long as you did not send an email to the address she provided, she does not have your email address. This was a top security concern we addressed during the redesign. (If you want your email address public on the site, you can do that, but itís an extra, purposeful step after you are registered.)

As far as the spammer herself, we were notified within the hour after she started, and we terminated her account immediately.

Unfortunately we canít take back those message notification emails that were sent out. However, you can always turn off message notifications under the Account menu (Notifications -> Notifications Settings) to never receive those, if you so desire.

Once we are aware of a situation like this, we will always take IMMEDIATE action to stop abuse of the site. If you ever receive anything like this please forward it to DigitalDreambook@gmail.com and/or Abigail@TheDigitalDreambook.com. You can also post on our Discussion board. If you post anywhere else other than our site, there is no guarantee we will see it quickly to take action.

Thank you to everyone who contacted us after getting the email! Your help was invaluable and greatly appreciated. We apologize for any inconvenience.

I got the e-mail, too. I was even afraid to click on the abigail link. Just deleted it. Glad it's under control now.

I don't open emails from people I don't know. I'm glad it is over.

Do you need everyone who got it to forward it to Abigail? Or just the first person to alert you?

I guess Norton took care of it for me. I never got the email and my spam goes in the garbage.
