Something somewhat unnerving has happened to me this week. I guess I am not the only one and certainly not the last to experience this.
Suddenly I was getting notifications in my email of an account created on a site called Tagged.com. The email account was an old account of mine which I haven't used in years but to all intents and purposes I suppose it is still floating around somewhere in the ether.
The next thing I know is I am getting notifications from a LOT of men, telling me that they are interested in me. Now perhaps that may have been a flattering occurrence, in another age or place, and I have no idea what picture they are looking at -another unnerving thing - but all I can say that it feels pervey and predatory and remarkably unsexy.
To Unsubscribe I had to enter a password which of course I did not know. So I referred to their customer support and they asked for a photo of me with the time and date, which my husband dutifully took. In effect a MUG SHOT ! Whether this is another scam I do not know but it was from the Customer support team which I can only assume was genuine. I needed to produce one of these to be allowed to be uncoupled from this loathsome site. It felt as if I was the criminal in the action, not the other way around. I have sent off the mug shot and await deletion with considerable anticipation.
