'Shtyle.fm'

DON'T OPEN IT"

A couple of evenings ago I received an email to tell me that a friend would like to share his photos with me, via Shtyle.fm.

Like a fool, I acknowledged this (no excuse other than it was late in the evening and I was running on automatic).

Now I realise to my embarrassment that my post box has been hi-jacked and everyone whom I have emailed from this account over the last couple of years or so is getting a similar email. Worse, I can find no means on the mailing site for unsubscribing. Judging from the mass of complaints that I have (subsequently) found on the Internet I really do wonder whether there is anything effective that I can do.

PLEASE DISCOUNT ANY INVITATION FROM SHYLE.FM TO SIGN UP TO SEE MY PHOTOGRAPHS

I am very sorry to have fallen for this one and therefore pestered you in this way.

At the same time, let me express my genuine appreciation to all those nice people around the world who have signed up I this way to be my 'friend', presumably in the hope of receiving photographs.. Sorry, I have none to offer you!

If you do receive such an email, just bin it. Do not respond to it. And, if anyone knows how to unsubscribe or could tell me of an appropriate regulatory body to complain to, I should be much obliged.

Andrew.
