ID # in "new myspace message" - what is it? how to use it to find profile?

I received a "new myspace message" in my yahoo account, but no message in myspace? When I use what appears to be the friend ID from the email, it doesnt go to a profile page. Im wondering if this ID is really the profile id? or is this a fake profile that is sending out junk? How can I use this ID to see who sent me a message? Thanks!!

Weird, I've never gotten one of those, are you sure no one's getting into your account??

I suppose its possible? My account is set up to send notification emails when I get a new comment/message. You set it in your preferences.

Sounds like phishing to me. Change your password if you logged into your myspace profile directed from the email.

New Myspace Message Notification

I'm saying it's possible that if you're getting the notification in your inbox, then you are logging in and there isn't one there, either it's phishing or someone's getting into your account..

Like the others said above, it could be phishing or a hacker. But every once in a while I get a notification for a new message and when I log in there's nothing there. It could just be another one of Myspace's glitches. But I guess it wouldn't hurt to change your password. Cool

I checked a message that I knew I received and from who - turns out the id in the email is not the profile id, it also changes with each message - even when the sender is the same. Im changing my p/w just the same.

I've had that happen before, if I catch the message before it gets deleted, it's usually one of those spam, porno, ActiveX sites.

if a user ie a spambot, porn site etc sends you a msg, but then the account gets deleted it will say you have a new msg in your email, but when you sign in it will be gone. this happens not infrequently as spammers accounts get deleted fairly quickly.
