well, I answered my own questions. At the bottom of the website is "spoofs" and an exact copy of my email and it said to forward it onto them exactly as it is. who looks over the entire website that closely???. anyway, it says not to send anything, altho it says not to respond either (my bad) so i guess we will see what happens; will keep you informed.

Dear valued Wonderfulbuys customer,

It has recently come to our attention that a suspicious email is being sent to our customers. The email has been designed to look like an official email sent from Wonderfulbuys.com, but is, in fact, a ‘spoof’ email, used by spammers to try and gain access to your personal data such as credit card and driver’s license information.

Please be aware that Wonderfulbuys.com will NEVER ask you to provide credit card, driver’s license or other personally identifying information via email.

If you suspect that you have received a fraudulent email, do not reply to, or click on any links within, the email. Instead, please forward it to us at spoof@wonderfulbuys.com. We will work aggressively to investigate every spoof reported. We also ask that you do not change or retype the subject line of the ‘spoof’ email, as this can inhibit our ability to properly investigate it. After forwarding the email, you should delete it from your inbox.

Thank you for your cooperation. If you have any questions or concerns relating to this matter, please contact us at support@wonderfulbuys.com

Kind Regards,
Pat Rogers
Manager, Customer Satisfaction Department
Wonderfulbuys.com

This has happened to me with PayPal too. *grr* I always call the company instead of contacting via e-mail when I get something suspicious.

Good day Karen, and to all on My Bargain Buddy...

This is a serious issue and we have already taken steps to ensure that this does not happen again. The integrity and security of our site as well as that of our customers is of paramount importance, and I can assure you that everything is being done to stop this problem immediately.

We are also going to work on improving the visibility of the "spoof" emails, so our customers are easily able to recognize and identify a "spoof" email should they recieve one.

Again, I assure you that everyone at Wonderfulbuys is working exceptionally hard to correct this problem as soon as possible.

Thank you kindly, and I will keep you updated on the status of this situation. All apologies for any inconvenience this is causing.
