Tagged.com / sites like this should be banned!

I received and e-mail from a friend where it asked me to join tagged.com and since it was from my friend I opened it up and it immediately attached itself to my yahoo addresses and sent out e-mails to them asking them to join. When I contacted my buddy whom I got it from he stated that it happened to him as well which is why I got it. This is wrong and needs to stop. Sites like this should be banned. The site looks like it is something like a MySpace page. A fraud is what it is.

SPAM SPAM SPAM and a c*ap its also full of google adsense. I didn't accept the invitation and it still sent out an email to everybody in my contacts list asking if they would be my friend? Many unhappy customers, thinking that I had spammed them. Shut the site down. Why does google allow adsense on such a bad site.

While this is undoubtedly one of the worse things associated with the site the Chatrooms which contain Predators and Flamers a mile away are just as bad and it's amazing the site has left that part neglected.

I don't even remember why I joined Tagged.com (probably by recommendation from a friend), but I haven't used it at all since. Almost immediately I started receiving spam sent to the unique address I entered in my tagged profile. These bozos are either wide open to spam harvesters, selling e-mail addresses of their users to spammers or are spammers themselves. Either way, someone should put them out of business.

It's interesting that Tagged.com does not provide any means to change your e-mail address or deactivate/delete your account. I briefly considered complaining to them directly but quickly realized it would be useless at best.

Bottom line: TAGGED.COM = SPAM

This is one of the worst sites on the net. Tricking people out of their contact list is illegal.This jerk at abuse
makes it voluntary on your part if you click "yes" . You gave them the right to take you contacts list without your knowledge...Yeh, that sound like stealing all right!

Should a stranger be asking you for your email login? Most of you know you should not do that, but slick
trickery can fool some.

Read on:

First I want to say, I did not click on yes or no....

I complained to abuse@above.net on behalf of someone else "victim " # ?(who knows)

and hope you all will to. The problem is the above.net person seemed to be defensive of this site, which is unusual. In every case I am aware of, they are trying to "protect" the consumer, but in this case, I was threatened with legal action when I called it "stealing" when it is in fact just that, and I am gathering information from this site as well as others, and may contact people to get declarations if this group of scammers try to threaten me again..Here is the text of the message I received from so called "abuse" see if this sounds like the position someone takes, who is trying to be on the side of you and others who have been scammed by this site.

their position:

Dear Farhana,

"Steal" is a very strong term and carrying possible severe penalties. In every instance that I've investigated to date, the email address and specifically the password for the email account was provided freely by the complainant.

Please provide any evidence that you may have, not just the accusation, that your email password was obtained by means other than by you providing it to them.

I too fell victim to the chicanery and subterfuge of tagged.com. I will admit to providing my email and password, but the page layout presented a sample list with check boxes giving the appearance that I would be able to control the recipients of my invitations. I filled out a complaint with the FTC and encourage others to do so
https://rn.ftc.gov/pls/dod/wsolcq$.startup .

I also notified abovenet.

I checked the press sites to see if there were any stories on this, and of course the media only report what a brilliant marketing plan they have. It makes my skin crawl to see what is happening to values and ethics today.

Recent victom: Signed up for tagged.com, and while entering the registration info I was prompted for mothers maiden name, which like an idiot I entered. I now have one $15 and another $13 charge showing up on my phone bill, which I specifically tracked down to the exact moments I registered with Tagged.com.

I think its wrong that anyone can get your yahoo address and add you to your freinds without asking if you mind, ESPECIALLY from married men! And when you mention, you don't communicate with married men to them.. you get named called!

I would like to file a complaint with FTC AND the person who is called Playful One in Tagged!

This site doesn't automatically send to new people, it sends only if you tell it to! I just got an email similar to this from Tagged.com and it asked me if it was okay to send to users in my address book. Has it changed since the original post or something?

My wife signed up at the request of a friend too.

Immediately, 4 companies sending us emails for $14.95/mon servcies to our home phone number.

What a scam!!

We have filed complaints with the BBB On-Line - and with the FCC - I'm pretty sure this falls under telephone fraud which is a federal offense.

I keep getting e-mail from Tagged.com asking me if two people are my friends. It says, "Click yes or they will think you said no!" I clicked yes and a form came up, which I did NOT fill out. There is a place to click to stop further emails. I clicked it and there is no place to unsubscribe or have my address removed. Under "privacy, " I found an email address and sent a complaint and said that I wanted it stopped. Today, I got another email asked about the same two friends.
One of my friends said that his siste is signed up but he isn't! They went into the address book of his sister and sent to all of them and somehow got into my friend's address book and sent to all of them, including me. Why is this site not being shut down????

Several people wrote that TAGGED sent email to people in their contact lists, and someone else wrote that they only send email to people you specify. Well, both are wrong. TAGGED sent an email to a friend of my mother's. I don't know her friends last name, and never knew her email. She is not in my address book, and I never mentioned her to TAGGED. They are doing something else to get info like this. I have started the process to get information about launching a class-action lawsuit against them. I *HATE* litigation, and this is a lawsuit-happy culture we live in, and I hate perpetuating that, but these people at TAGGED know exactly what they are doing, and they know it is wrong. They have no right to send unauthorized emails in my name, and no fine print can change the fact that they emailed someone I don't even know, someone who has never been in my address book, and someone with whom I have never communicated... saying that the invitation came from me. Those for or against TAGGED.COM can not possibly read this posting and justify what they did.

I've been on Tagged for a long time and no such thing has happened to me or any of the almost 500 people on my list from around the world that I am aware of.For a long time a website with the address www.taqqed.com posed as www.tagged.com.The difference is G and Q.Before you sign up look carefully at the address.I think Tagged is a good and safe site.The same thing happens on Yahoo, Msn, myspace, bebo and so on and no one has anything to say about that.Take up responsibility and look before you leap.and try point at fingers at some of the porn sites some of you might have been on.

My laptop suddenly thinks I need to use Internet Gateway to share with another computer (I only have one), and when I go into advanced settings of Gateway, the location code of my supposed shared computer disappeared right before my eyes. This never happened before until my daughter started getting on Tagged. It seems like someone is hacking into my computer, and sometimes tries to redirect me to other websites. I have removed Gateway, and disabled everything I could think of but I don't know if it's too late! Having it checked by an expert. Beware.

I've never had problems with Tagged.com [two GG's not two QQ's], Like YuYu said above, make sure you have the right site.

I have tons of friends from around the word and have fun on the site. Not one of my contacts [email or otherwise] have ever been effected by me joining this group. I love it. And about all this spam, I don't get spam like the ones mentioned before me.

So again, maybe it's taqqed.com and not tagged.com your all so concerned about.

Dear Tagged,
I' d like to complain about the Tags Box. I want to delete or to undo it by a simple click and I can't. The other boxes can be undone, but the Tags Box is the only one which I cannot remove.
I've searched every single option, but I couldn't find anything. Please do something to help improoving Tagged and fix this. It's the only thing which annoyed me. Waiting for some help.
