What makes this worthy of note on LJ is that the spoof e-mails were sent to my e-mail account at the Conference office, which is NOT what I use for personal e-mail. (I figured if it caused a problem, let 'em crash the Conference's system, not mine.)
The only time I have ever given that out as my e-mail address was on LJ, when I made an announcement about a Venturing activity. I gave my Conference e-mail as a "reply to" convenience. So the slimy little crooks must have scooped up that e-mail address from that LJ post to generate those e-mails.
Let this be a warning to everybody about releasing specific personal information on the internet, even "among friends" on LJ!
