Is anybody else receiving this? It looks like spam. I want to know how someone that I don't know could request to be on my contacts list.  Are our TV ID's being broadcast publicly to anybody? I thought they were private only between me and whoever is on my TV contact list.



TRACY-PC would like to add you as a contact in his/her TeamViewer contacts list.

Re: Spam

Hi F1Globaltech!

Thanks for your post.

This email does look like the genuine TeamViewer messages advising you of a pending contact request. However, if you are uncomfortable with clicking a link within the email, you can open TeamViewer and under the notifications (Flag) icon in the software, you should see the contact request that you can accept.

I hope this helps!

Did my reply answer your question? Why not accept it as a solution to help others?

Re: Spam

Nope.   This solution may have worked 3 or 4 years ago, but there is nothing in the TV client to even see private messages, and the "Messaging" section of the website has no way to delete, block or report a message.  For that matter the TV website won't even recognize the message as "Read", so it sits there forever in "New" state.
