Who is BeMyApp? Targeting members of IBM forums?

  • 1.  Who is BeMyApp? Targeting members of IBM forums?

    Hi Y'all.

    I just got an email from no-reply@bemyapp-mail.com, informing me about a new question posted.  The lead text reads:

    [IBM USER GROUP DAYS] NEW QUESTION NOTIFICATION

    With a button inviting me to [SEE THE QUESTION].  I foolishly failed to notice the unfamiliar "from" line and clicked on that button.  Within an ohnosecond, I realized my folly and closed that tab, though if it is something malicious it's probably too late.  I'm posting tot he forum because I suspect it is related to my activity on this forum.

    Has anyone else gotten this?  It seems to be benign; a Google search turned up no complaints or warnings about it.  The site bemyapp.com seems legit.

    And no, I didn't wait around to see the question.

    What's up with that.

    PS. An ohnosecond is the time interval between when you do something stupid and when you realize it and groan "Oh No!" :-)

    Hello Jacob,
    I think you signed up for the IBM User group days.
    I also received the same email as yours as below.
