Posted by on Mar 9, 2011 in Help & Support | No Comments

It has come to our attention that some Photobucket users are receiving the following spoof email:

Subject: photobucket.com Account- Closure
From: "photobucket@admn" <
photobucket.gm.admn@gmail.com>

Thank you for using the internet top medium for photo sharing.

After looking into the situation it appears  your photobucket account
is in danger of being closed
permanently, to prevent this action please reply

to this email as soon as possible  with the following

* Account  name
* Account password
* First and Surname

We do regret the frustration that this may cause but in order to
restore and/or maintain account status we have to be able to verify
evidence of them from our records.

We thank you for your patience while this issue is being handled.

Should you require further assistance, please submit another help
request the next time you are online. We hope you continue to enjoy
your experience with photobucket
