Someone once put a comment on my Sparkpage pushing a diet they said was "endorsed by Sparkpeople." And of course, they asked for money. Spark endorses no diet plan, and anything asking for money is spam. I deleted the comment.

Take care...Karen

Here's what I found on one of the other teams today:

The following fraudulent e-mail is being sent around spark people at the moment...This is a scam and is NOT from spark people. A few people have responded to this offer and have had there credit cards severely over charged with no customer service available to stop it from happening! I repeat...This is a SCAM and NOT from spark people if you get this e-mail report it as inappropriate and delete it!

This is what you will see:

emoticon I got it too. I just deleted it. I almost reported it but it said it was inconjunction with SP so I thought it was legit.

watch out for these e mails a few people have received them in last few days, they are spam!! press the report as inappropriate button if you get one


I just received in my Spark Mail box a note with a link to receive a "free" gift from Spark People in coordination with some other group. The "free" gift only costs US$4.95???

Is this for real? I'm a little doubtful. It's from a user with no page??? ION1908

I clicked on Report Inappropriate Message. What else needs to be done.
