Of late I have been receiving some links on my messenger, apparently from friends. It can be yahoo, MSN, googletalk or any of the other messengers on line that you use to chat with your friends. A simple google of the links that came on shows that they are spam links that are used to hijack your account to spam others on your list with those sites as well. Just to let you know some of the results that I managed to find online. Beware of these links when you see them appearing on your messenger. Your friend DID NOT send them!

Else your messenger ID may be potentially hijacked by spammers!

You are most welcome. In fact, if you can update the list, it is even better. It is one thing to be getting spam mail. But to have an account hijacked and used for spamming, that is another thing altogether!

Hello Ahgong, thanks for sharing this information. I never open mails received from unknown persons or those who are not in my friends list. Whether they are received in spam or inbox I simply delete them completely. But the information given by you is very important and to be remembered. Thanks and have a nice day

Yeah, I received some from those that are not on my list as well. And I usually ignore them. But these new links are sent by people who ARE on my list! But the links just look dubious. That is why I did some search on the web. Only to find out that they are spam hijackers. So beware of the links posted. I am sure there are more. I only managed to find the few posted.
