    Lately my boyfriend and i have been signing into our hotmail and having these 'bots' add us as contacts.

    they say hi, do you have a webcam, you can see me on my webcam at this link and they try and get you to click it.

    Where are they getting our emails from????

    has anyone else experienced this?:eek:

    I get a whole lot of them too because I have a common name. The only thing you can do is hit block and ignore them.
