Andrew's Music World WEBSITE NOTES
this website was attacked by spammers. Spammers sent out hundreds of emails to people using this account URL in the subject line, each with different return email addresses. They not only attacked this website, but all websites on the 50Webs domain, shutting them all down. I have absolutely nothing to do with the spammers in India. I do not know them, I do not know why they attacked my website. I am not soliciting money from anybody for any reason. I did not send those emails. When the angry emails started coming in, I tried to contact the webhosts to ask them what was happening. From 11am to 4:30pm, I was shut out of my website and could do nothing. This website was shut down and I have received hundreds of very angry emails blaming me for the spam.

the spammer Stephnie gesang from "gesangauto" sent out spams with my website in the subject line. I do not know them, I do not know why they are using my website in their spams. I did not send those emails.

the spammer Karyn Magee sent out spams offering to sell millions of email addresses for sending out spam. I do not know them, I do not know why they are targeting me. I did not send those emails.
According to the support forum on the website, "noobos" explains what is happening:
Here are examples of the spam they have been sending, but with other peoples' websites in the subject line
spam examples with other websites in the subject line
The spammers used different email accounts from Gmail in the "From" section and the same Gmail account in the "Reply-To" section. If you received one of these spams, report it to Google Mail and tell them both Gmail accounts.
I would like to report a Gmail user who has sent messages that violate the Gmail Program Policies
If you wish to vent to me what happened, you can email me here, and consider that I can only read English.
Note: Remove the "NOSPAM." from the above email address. I've added that "NOSPAM." part to thwart webcrawlers which scan websites to find email addresses to add to their spam-email lists. My emailbox is flooded with over 40 SPAM emails every single day. Now that spammers in India and China are sending out spams with my website in the subject line, many people are angrily blaming me.
the web counter code I have been using for years has went bad. SiteMeter had been a reliable accurate counter for years, but they were bought out by the same company that bought MySpace and they changed their code to become advertising intensive. People who tried to read my webpages were haplessly redirected to GoGarden.com, EducationGarden.com, and some other spam websites. Search on Google.com for "gogardenclub+sitemeter" and "redirect+gogardenclub" to find online discussions where people tracked the redirects to the SiteMeter code. Until I could track the problem down to SiteMeter, it was a very frustrating couple of days of virus checking. I have removed all SiteMeter code from my webpages.
