Recently I got an e-mail from a loose acquaintance, let’s say Vick Timlee,
Vick Timlee wants you to join Yaari!
Is Vick your friend?
Yes, Vick is my friend! No, Vick isn’t my friend.
Please respond or Vick may think you said no 🙁
Thanks,The Yaari Team
So, that’s a lie. Vick didn’t send me anything. He’s not waiting vulnerably for my attestation of our “friend”-ship.
What has happened is that he created an account on Yaari.com and they spammed everyone in his Gmail contacts. Further, they claimed that Vick sent these messages himself.
A nice blog post goes into this practice in more detail. The short of it is, stay away from Yaari.
