A Warning about Grouply.

Want to remove this ad? Please sign in or register for free today.

Hello, here is an admin that has been sent to all Freecycle members bcause of a problem with Grouply.com

So if you use or are considering Grouply for your Yahoo or Gmail groups then read on.

P.S. - this does not apply to Rossendale online - just passing on the info.

Quote:
It has come to our attention that there is a group that are
claiming a new way to get your group mail and the name is Grouply.

There has been a LOT of email going around the various yahoo groups
today about a new way to get your group email - Grouply! BEWARE!!!!

AT THIS MOMENT WE ARE BANNING all use of Grouply in our members. we
request that if you RIGHT NOW have Grouply, you PLEASE change your
email addresses to NON Grouply addresses AND CHANGE YOUR PASSWORDS.

Some investigation has been done into Grouply policies, and anyone on
Grouply is a privacy leak to any and every member of every group that
you are on.

Any Grouply member can check the profile of any other Grouply
member. When you do this, you are able to GO TO the groups the other
member belongs to and post, grab email and snail mail addresses, grab
phone numbers if they are listed anywhere on the list. EVEN IF THE
GROUP IS A PRIVATE AND RESTRICTED GROUP.

Because of this leak, we are banning the use of Grouply. We do not
want to delete anyone's memberships, but need anyone who has
Grouply to IMMEDIATELY change to a NON Grouply email address that has
had CHANGED passwords! YOU MUST CHANGE YOUR PASSWORDS ON ALL YOUR
NON-GROUPLY EMAIL AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!

If you do not change the email address, we will, unfortunately, need
to delete your membership for the safety and privacy of all of our
members. That is our number one concern

If you do get deleted, you are very much welcome to join the group
again with a non Grouply address. We do not want to lose you, but we
must make the list safe.

Thank you for your understanding in this. If you have any questions
at all, please write to us.

Thank you,
We have had lots of complaints about Grouply

Matty
