Getting spam from CGR

I got a spammy email from CGR today about hoarding food and buying Frank's food or something. I didn't read it all, but I did find it alarming that CGR is now sending spam to me.

Can you take a screenshot of the email and post it?

I got the same one as RM, but I deleted so fast it didn't realize it was spam.

Interesting...

It actually looks like it's someone impersonating CGR's email...if anything. They're just setting their name to "Christian Guitar Resources".

What does it say in the dropdown box next to "to me"?

I wasn't immune to this either. I read it and thought, oh. Well, I guess there is another way of funding the site. I clicked delete. I thought Pauler may be a doomsday prepper and was wanting to get the word out.

I got it too. But having just woken up, I didn't think about keeping it.

If I get one again, I'll get a copy of the headers.

It turns out I got it too, I just hadn't checked my email yet when I posted it this morning. I suspect we all got it.

The email displays as coming from admin at christianguitar dot org. If it's fake, it's pretty sophisticated spoofing (if I understand it correctly).

At the very least it means our emails are being leaked. Or sold.

I got it too. The link takes you to a site that will help you stock your apocalypse shelter.

Did anyone watch the video?

Me too

I searched my gmail and was very sad. Maybe it's going to the Hotmail account I signed up for CGR with originally.
