    I got a youtube invitation from the owner of 4coolday.com ( Or could be fake?)

    This is what it said

    Is this fake?
    Any harm in letting them know my address and name?

    Your YouTube channel? To see if your videos are "great" how they say.

    well, 4coolday.com is real, and you do have almost 50,000 plays on it, but ask someone else, as i'm not a youtuber

    it seems pretty legit to me (refer to--------------------------------------------------------------------------------^)

    Well yea my videos aren't the best but they do have a decent amount of hits

    @connorroy
    I shall do that but heard they do reply very very slowly

    Is there any big harm in giving them your address and name?

    Only that they'll know who you are and where you live.

    Other than that, no harm at all.

    They're not asking for passwords, credit cards, or Social Security number...

    Whether its fake or not, they're not asking for critical information. But they could be a sex offender wanting to find you and rape you. Just saying...

    Also Spectral Force Genesis has werewolves in it.

    The grammar in that message was terrible, which is the only thing I'd be a bit suspicious about. I'd normally expect website managers to at least type English properly, but if "Sandy"'s from another country, I could sort of understand that.

    I think it is legit. As what Njrg had said, They're not asking for passwords, credit cards, or Social Security numbers. The last PM I got, was obviously fake, it was to get free subscribers, but I had to give critical information. [​IMG]

    I couldn't ever understand anything of the support mails of DX, yet they were a perfectly legit site. Good spelling and grammar makes you look more professional, but that doesn't make it legit. Ever seen good spam? It has perfect spelling and grammar, yet it is not legit at all, obviously.
