  1. I don't know exactly what the sender is trying to achieve here, but this is definitely not an official email from Blogger... there's typos and broken English. Also, you can definitely have more than 1 blog on Blogger, and it doesn't cost anything... I used to have 2. I wouldn't go to their link or answer the email. You should find out what to do to report it to Blogger, because this is some sort of scam.

  2. Looks like the old "MSN MESSENGER SHUTTING DOWN/CHARGING FOR ACCOUNTS" e-mail chain spam.

    I googled 'blogspost and forit organisation' and it shows other people getting the same message, in various incarnations, mispelled and trying to sell something. It's your standard scam, just ignore it.

  3. I got one of these too I just marked it as spam!

  4. Thank you all, this has really eased my mind and frustration. I was hoping it was only a scam and I've been trying to ignore it for the past few days since I recieved it, but, my paranoia got the best of me.

    Thanks so much again! I'd hate for something as stupid as this to jeopardize my blogs. >.>

  5. I got one of those as well, and was worried for about a minute. Then I realized if it was true, I'd just move my blog to another free blog service. What annoys the hell out of me is that Gmail, who I have my blog connected to, didn't filter out this crap as spam. Send it to spam or delete it.
