DO NOT have anything to do with

Unfortunately I accepted an invitation that was "from" someone I trusted. In fact she did not send me the invitation but rather her entire set of email contacts was raided and used to send out these phony invitations. Today at 4:00 am, 5 days after I accepted and carefully sent ONLY ONE invitation to one person that has an interest in this kind of thing, spammed many people in my rather large Gmail address book, even though I very explicitly declined this "helpful" option 5 days ago.

The person who is 5 days ahead of me on this said that it looks to her like the assault is staged so that more go out every day. So I am
broadcasting  this warning message  to all my contacts. just in case I can save some of you from making the same mistake I did. Sorry for the trouble. Next time I will be more careful about researching ANYTHING regardless of who it APPEARS to be from. At a minimum I will send an email to the person it appears to be from, as many of you already have sent to me.

If you have already joined
Quechup you might want to send out a warning ASAP, and beat the spam that is likely to occur. When I received a warning note like this 4 days ago, I thought I had been sufficiently careful and the person before me had not, but now I just think that Quechup ignores your response and invites everyone in a way that makes it look like it came from YOU. If you get his warning before the invitation, please let me know.

Since I have already used up some of your time, let's try to make lemonade and warm up some old connections. Eric is at RPI now. Susie is enjoying the job at F5 that she started last January. I am seeing an upswing in my old business and starting a new one. 
Drop me a note if you have time.
