users receiving SPAM email

It has come to our attention that some members have been receiving SPAM email from a person (or persons) claiming to be from the owners of Xtratime. Please note that these messages were NOT sent by VerticalScope or any of our affiliates, and appear to be instead an attempt to impersonate our company and aggravate the forum members.

At the moment we have have been notified about emails being sent from "" or "" addresses. We have never used these mail services for contacting members, and all official broadcast communication would come from either our company email address, or For those members who believe they have received these SPAM emails, please contact us directly and we will attempt to track down where they are being sent from.

Thank you for your patience in this matter,

Systems Administrator

The "rookie" rank is based on post counts.

In the interest of setting the record straight on this matter, I would like to add that, after further investigation, it was discovered that the email spam had indeed been sent by a VerticalScope employee. Although this was done without their consent and it wasn't known at the time when their admin posted the announcement here. The matter has been dealt with by VS and the person in question has been told not to send such emails to Xtratime members again.
