Default Answered: I got spam from the "webkinz news administrator"

Really weird. I just got spam from the "webkinz news administrator" saying I have been "selected to receive" a mini laptop computer. Anyone else getting anything like that? or is it just me?

The message you got has nothing to do with Webkinz or Ganz.

It is someone impersonating Ganz to try to get information from you.

DO NOT respond to the message. Report it as junk/spam to your email provider.

Oh gosh, I haven't gotten that yet, but that's the thing that I was afraid of when they started running 3rd party ads. :/

Hm... you may have a tracking cookie:

So some company must have used tracking cookies to see that you like webkinz, and then just spam you under the name 'webkinz newz administrator'.

Well, this is my theory at least. BUT, if you think I may be correct, tracking cookies are nothing to panic about. They are just really annoying. While in your browser, at the top, go to Tools>Clear Recent History, then Select 'Time Range To Clear' and select 'Everything'. Then just scroll down and select 'Cookies'(and anything else you may want to clear). That should do it.

But again, this is only my theory. I may not be right.
