Grammabear, who was the spam from? Amazon???

Barb, No it wasn't from Amazon.  It was an unsolicited blackmail email from Tracie - I don't know anyone with this name.  He/she demanded a sizeable amount of money or they would send porno videos of me to everyone on my contact list.  I printed a copy of the email and then deleted it from my SPAM folder.

Never heard of such threatening emails. I’ve heard of fraudulent emails offering large sums of money, but never this.

Wow Grammabear, that is really scary!!

Like you I have no porno videos anywhere, that is quite a scam. Only photos around of me are before my double mastectomy and I really doubt anyone has access to them.

If only these 'crooks' would spend their time in a more creative manner instead of doing stupid stuff like this blackmail email.

Maybe, you should have kept the email archived. It has a lot of trace elements.

Our Amazon account has been dormant for many days now and I had thought of putting up a sort of a reminder post here. Well, I checked early morning and there has been some purchase activity for which we have an addition of $ 2.79.

Thanks.

Like Shanny, I’ve made the diabetic.pub URL as my automatic Amazon link. I’m sure I, at least, am not buying enough to add more than the tiniest amount, but I suppose it’s something...

I placed an order 11-2 for around $31, I only go through the DP.url when placing orders. I have some gift cards coming up and I know they don't count, but will still go through here to buy them.

All my purchases on Amazon go through here. Some months I buy more some not so much. Christmas is going to be a lot of gift cards...wish they counted!

I wonder how accurate is Amazon's ability to track our purchases and give the forum credit for those purchases?  I just purchased ink cartridges for my printer and since I have Prime, there was free shipping.  My total purchase was around $75.

They may only post once or twice a month.

I just realized my Amazon bonus points from my Amazon credit card only post once a month. I wanted to apply some last month but they didn't post until my new billing cycle this month.

All of us should have purchased some Amazon stock when we were younger because now it is around $1700 a share (USD).  We would be rich.  Google isn't far behind Amazon at $1000 a share.

Hindsight is great isn't it Grammabear? I wish I could hitch a ride on the Tardis with Dr Who and go back in time and do just that!!  ;D

Thank you everyone,
For your support with the Amazon link and purchases. I had set a target of $ 100.00 until March to make the site self sufficient, but I think we are going to achieve that in this month itself.
