Dear Hampton Peoples Network.

A few months ago I was trying to do some research about my mums childhood in Hampton in the twenties and thirties.

We have since been over to the UK from Hampton and have visited a few of mums old haunts. This research is something I will get back to when I get more time.

My main point is that I recently got an email from a Stella Kwale which came from this email address

Hampton People's Network [mail@hamptonpn.ning.com] saying that they had something very vital to disclose to me. I am pretty sure this is some kind of scam and that either your website or my email address has been hacked

Please can anyone shed any light on this. Has anyone else been contacted in this way.

Maybe there is a Stella Kwale in your ranks but I doubt it!!!!

Kind regards,

David Bishop.

Melbourne, Australia.

David - This is a site that is open to anyone to join although obviously it is for people who live in Hampton or have a connection with it. From time to time people with no connection or interest in Hampton join and send emails offering "friendship" or claiming to have private information to share. Such emails are indeed spam and may indeed be scams. We do try to delete the sender of them as quickly as possible, but even once they have been deleted, the person can quickly rejoin with a new email address (and such people have no difficulty generating countless email addresses). Fortunately, these people usually get tired of joining, being deleted and then rejoining. They don't have access to your email address but if they message you, you may get an email which contains their message from the site. Hope this helps clear things up.

Yes I'm always surprised how many government officials from African countries, having the same surname as me, seem to die whilst having $30m to $70m in their bank accounts. My advice, to these officials , is to change their surname quickly as I think the name must be jinxed. Seriously though they are Spam. HPN seem to do a good job of filtering these out but just delete !
