Hi, I got this email this morning from Word-of-Mouth reports. Never heard of them before.

They claim that somebody is trying to find me to communicate

Is this a legit business??? or is it one of those annoying spams.

Titia, it looks like it's an internet private eye...people report things on you.  Type in a name, apparently, and find people who know something about the named person.

Apparently it can be used for both good and bad reports.

Whether it's a "scam" or not - I haven't yet figured out.

it's a scam, Titia. They tell you someone is trying to contact you and then you have to sign up (with a fee) to become a member and receive the reports. If you do, then apparently more times than not, they say the report was for someone with your name...but not you.....but you have become a paid member.

forget it...

I thought as much, but wanted to be sure.

It's deleted already.

Thanks, both of you
