Ringo.com is BOGUS

If you get an invite to view a friends photos at Ringo.com and are asked to provide your eMail address and password, Ringo.com will send an invite to every name in your address book, whether you want them to or not.

This program has an advanced feature in its EULA (End User License Agreement) which allows the website to send the invite to all of your friends as a 'convenience'.

There are other websites and programs that do this also.

Unfortunately, unless you read the big long legalese terms of use agreement you might not know until its already gotten into your address book.

This is BOGUS and ABUSIVE. Always question when an unsolicited eMail or website asks for your passwords. Be safe.

Thanks to my lovely, intelligent niece Sarah for figuring this out.
