Default Anyone getting random emails from Classifieds ???

This may not be the right forum, but hopefully a moderator will read this...

From 6:28pm to 7:04pm CST this evening I received 6 emails from the RCU classifieds.
All were in regards to items I sold back in 2013 and 2014. 2 were offers on my old ads, 1 rating, 1 new listing and 2 invoices on my old ads. My concern is the old invoices with paypal links going out. Some buyers may think a scam is in play with my username involved.

At first I thought someone may have my RCU access, but that makes no sense if I'm getting repeats of my old ratings and new ad listings for items I sold a long time ago. Makes me think RCU has a system error or something.

Anyone else getting these random, erroneous emails ?

Thanks...Scott

I am getting random posts in my build thread on this forum. All came from scam looking names, joined this month, and had only 4 posts each. Each post was a partial copy of what I wrote in the thread.

Me too. I got 1 from a jet I sold a year ago. Email was from the buyer that bought the jet but the comments on the e-mail were different from the original E-mails from the buyer I still have the originals. I deleted it thinking it was a scammer trying to get Info.
