    Joe, is that your email address as your forum ID.
    yeah it is, when i registered i only put it as Joeya7x, But it came out to be my full email address, i found that really strange.... and there's really no way to change it...

    Joe, is that your email address as your forum ID.
    Exactly what I was going to ask... that's a bad idea because of privacy and because spam bots can read e-mail addresses off forums.

    That's why many post their addresses example [at] example [dot] com.

    I ran a Google search for that PIN in case anything else came up, but only saw this thread.

    Hope this doesn't happen to you again.

    EDIT: An admin may able to change your username, I have been part of many vB forums and they do have this ability most of the time.

    I'm sure there is a way. I would contact one of the mods on the forum.

    different screen name,

    And like everyone else, I am really sorry this
    happened to you. Don't let it sour you on CB
    or BBM though.

    My little one isn't 2 yet but if he was older say 15 and got a msg like this I would have a field day choking the peddy that dared talk to my child like that.

    On a lighted note. Why don't I ever get PINs like that. Sorry it happened to you but I at 25 would be laughing my **** off

    Just saying

    That is disturbing. That's why I don't accept just any request without further info or contact. As stated before there's going to be some wierdos lurking around. I've received a reqest and when I pin'd back with a hello. Who ever it was was asking who I was. I thought that strange since whoever it was sent the request. Wonder what's going on? Just received a request from 245FBC8A. And sent a pin message a couple of hours ago and no response back. I will ask first, to add someone to my contacts. Good luck. =8')

    I had my own PIN anomaly today... I got an add request from an unknown user and, out of curiosity, accepted the invitation. It turned out to be a young lady considerably younger than I am who was blindly pinging folks just looking for contacts... It seems to me that pin #'s, mine anyway, is going to be reserved for folks that I already know. Posting it leaves too big a door wide open. I do not want that kind of aggravation.

    Sorry this has happened to some of you guys The worst I've gotten is the random pictures of boy parts ... lol. It's sad some people are so sad and desperate to act like that. There are always a few bad seeds that have to ruin the fun for everyone else. Immature.

    first off, sorry to hear about the bad experience.

    secondly, people need to be aware of the risks of putting their pin OR any other info about them online. look at facebook for example. people entire lives are on facebook, pictures, name, phone #, address and so much stuff. people gotta realize that doing such things poses a risk. would you walk around handing your photo and phone # to people on the street? well its the same thing as doing it online. a lot of people just jump on the online sharing frenzy and forget the risks.

    i say delete the person and black their pin. don't let this spoil ur blackberry/online experience, but just be careful when u're online or giving out info about urself.

    Hi this is directed to Jose Meraz.

    ( My blackberry user name is hahlee )
    My name is hahlee and my friend and i are very sorry for harassing you on the blackberry mesenger chat. We were being stupid and annoying and at the time we thought it was funny. But i guess you didnt think so. We were bored and wanted something to do, and we did not think you would take any personal percautions. We are both 15 years old as well and you should know well that teens like to joke around. Anyways, Jose im really sorry if i offended you in any way or form, we were both being stupid and childish and i hope you understand us. We were trying to have fun at the expense of another but we thought you would understand. Once again we are really sorry for harassing you and it wasnt personal. You can delete us off black berry messanger if you wish or you can stay and we can have a decent chat.

    Or maybe you can give me a chance to redeem myself and talk like ,friends.Because we are not harassers or child preditors, rapists or anything along those lines. We are just both 15 year olds trying to have fun.

    And we're very very truly sorry. So please accept our apology and let us put this stupid incident behind us.

    Thank you for taking the time to read our apology, Jose Meraz.



    And thank you everyone else for helpinig Jose. Thank you.

    I cant express how sorry we both feel about this. And i can not contain it to one reply. This issue if making me upset because we now realize there are people out there who do not take things like this so seriously. Again Jose we are truely sorry for the harassment you received from us. We really are sorry.

    We are sorry for claiming your sexual orientation was gay and for bringing up sexually related themes during our conversation, we are also sorry for claiming to be your "dream girl". And we appolgize that you took this as harassment.



    Sorry Jose. Regards from Hahlee and Apareel.

    Thank you for taking the time to read what we had to say and we truely you can some how excuse our immature acts we protrayed to you today.

    There certainly are some sick people out there. Giving out your pin is no different from giving out your phone number. If you don't know the person, don't do it.

    PS: Also I don't believe I went above anyone here at all. It was my own judgment to take action.. Some people get defensive as you can see, until they realize what action can be taken against them....
