Hi Guys.. I'm a 1st timer here so pls excuse my mistakes and guide me. I need little help. Few Days back I got a Mail from a friend which was to be fwd to as many as i can (Guess it must be Phishing kind) So i sent it to my entire contact list as was very confidently informed by another known fellow that he got a cheque of some $18454/- from MS. My Entire contact list had some 957 addresses (to my utter surprise)while sending this mail,obviously, I started getting Delivery failure notice. however one message was kind of unique and said I'm watching and you r on my guest list. 'boxbe'.... I never took it seriously until today when I was already waiting for an important mail from a client Which i found in Spam Folder. When i opened it there it was asking to decide if to approve the ID or domain.. and with a honest declaration that its Boxbe Managing my account...!!!

Now something weird. I had an old account with AOL by a user name which suddenly was no more available. BUT when i was trying to check boxbe.com it straight away logged me in to username@boxbe.com, there I found My original gmail account listed as Protected and it seems its some kind of social eMail filtering and managing portal. which allows My friends to use my contact book to mail them and then will notify me. I don't know I found it little weird and trespassing my privacy and security by deciding which is from MY FRIENDS and ONE which IT THINKS is SPAM.. Fellows PLS check it out.

Am i making any sense here.. I'm sorry if not, you can reach me at secureswoosh@aol.com But I've never ever heard the name "boxbe" before sending that Mass Mailer. moreover it is using my old AOL username to log me in their site, can it be co-incidence .. Believe Me I know my self ITS NOT NORMAL.. Is it that Gmail yahoo and AOL servers are compromised or have they sold the account info to the portal guys...?? cause if you have not realized till now that what exactly these Big Corporates are and How they are playing then let me find the Link which I will post here for your understanding. I'm not a techie i'll say mediocre among beginner's and beginner among mediocre . but have been with Internet since early 90's so this is a NEW era tht I'm witnessing. you can check this link and pls let me know if My Fears of coming time is correct or not

Will we be getting DICTATOR-ED by these Big Names. Cause If you haven't realized that these 3 have started dominating social sites by allowing their ID's to be used as Access user name and further compromising our family and friends.. I fear change of era in this computing world of IT

Is it not matter of discussion. Have we gone blind. Do we actually realize what does this mean to Launch a Satellite and do you know how big it is that google itself is connected with US NSA. So is it not playing in hands of politics which has already created unrest in entire world..??

PLEASE DO REPLY...
