Pure Bloggers - Scam?

I noticed an email from in my spam folder and took a look. It said that someone liked my blog and had sent an invitation for me to join pure bloggers site. There was a link. I was about to click when intuition told me to check it out first.

I discovered many others had received the same email and some had noticed them appearing many times in their blog stats. I was wary then. Is it a phishing site?

Apparently someone did sign up and discovered that you are brought to a page where you can "connect" to all your social media... facebook, twitter, youtube, etc. Which ok may just be legitimate but.... they also want your full birth date for sign up. Not much other information about them but I for one will be steering clear and leaving any future emails from them in the spam bin!

Sometimes you just have to follow your instincts.

  1. I just got that same email and googled "pure bloggers" scam which is what brought me here. I'm inclined to err on the side of caution.
