I've received an email today alerting me to a private message by X member but the alert was sent to an email account that I've never ever used or registered with MN. I didn't click on the link to 'see my message' because I assumed this was fraud. Also, there is no message showing in my MN inbox. The email address on the email was firstname.lastname@example.org
I haven't done a name search (yet) to see if the supposed MN user name of the 'private message' exists but I doubt it does.
Hi there PollyPerky. This sounds rather odd. Do you want to drop us a line at Contactus@mumsnet.com and we can have a look behind the scenes at your account and double check it's nothing to do with us. In the meantime, yes, sounds wise to not touch it.
