Got an email from someone claiming to be a member here asking about a guitar we discussed a few months ago. Same email address as gent who I corresponded with back then.

Responded back, then they said it was for a third party.

I pinged the member to confirm, (who is online now), and he said it wasn't him.

Odd....

When you say "same email address" make sure you view the header and confirm that the header has the exact email address you were expecting. Spoofed email addresses are still a big thing and if someone hacked an account of someone you had corresponded with they could easily craft a targeted email aimed at you.

Sounds fishy but might not have anything to do with LTG being hacked.

U
nderstood. Thanks

Just wanted to give a heads up.

It was an out of the blue email from someone from here I was going back and forth with a few months back re a guitar. I did sort by From, (to look at old emails to make sure I had the right price)..and just looked again. Identical.

Sorry for the alarm but I figured rather safe than sorry

Thanks again!

Do a "show headers" in your email client and PM me the results and I'll tell you if anything is off.
