    People for god's sake don't fall for this scam!

    No one, (I repeat) NO ONE can know if someone has blocked you or not, all they're trying to do is take your credentials. Hijack your hotmail, Yahoo, Gmail, facebook account and go to town with it!

    Stop being too nosy, you will not get anything out of it!

    (Read more for additional vital information and a free game, no seriously, learn more about Phishing through a game)

    I guess it's human nature to find WHO blocked you, and who's trying to excommunicate you. But people trust me, it's impossible. (There is a way and it involves having a mutual friend). But there is no programmatic way, or an API that can tell you this.

    In this day and age, your "electronic identity" is going to be more and more important. It will not be long until these electronic identities become as used and as valid as your driver's license or even your passport. So be careful NOW. Remember, your Email can be used to reset your online banking account which means, someone with access to it can hurt you, not just socially, but FINANCIALLY and may ruin your credit and gain access to your private information, pictures, or sensitive work documents

    To help people a little more on this, here are some guidelines for protecting your identity and your electronic accounts

    1. Make sure you have a strong password, that is not guessable
    2. NEVER give your password to people in Email, or during IM chats
    3. NEVER use your password on sites that you don't fully trust (in my book, NO SITE, so when Facebook asks me for my hotmail password, I tell them to buzz off!)
    4. Pay attention to the site name (all modern browsers are going to be highlighting the top level domain, so you know for sure that you're landing on the right site)
    5. Don't use the same password for everything (I know I've been guilty of that myself)
    6. DO NOT USE YOUR EMAIL PASSWORD TO SIGN UP ON SITES. That's the stupidest thing you can do. Some sites don't even encrypt your passwords, leaving them open to anyone with access to the back end (Possibly the entire company)
    7. Be smart, don't be fooled by sites that promise you rewards for signing up. Or getting you information about your friends, or who blocked you on messenger
    8. Be super careful from Instant messages with links. Compromised accounts and machines will use these to fool more people.
    9. Also, don't assume a computer is safe because your Spouse is using it, don't assume an Email is valid because you get it from a trusted friend.
    10. Always a good idea to have Anti-virus, Anti-malware and firewall running on your computer at all times
      Also always important to have your computer (AND SOFTWARE) up to date with patches, (You can use this amazing little tool to stay up to date on your patches for EVERYTHING on your PC: get Secunia PSI personal

    Now, do you think you know all about phishing? Test your knowledge by playing this game

    True!

    It does really bug me when I sign in to my email or messenger and receive such spam from people that fell for it.

    I used to work a couple of years ago but I highly doubt that there are any programs that work today.

    LOL, thanks for the game :P

    I agree that there is no programmatic way to figure out if somebody blocked you on MSN Messenger and Yahoo Messenger. You can of course monitor people's behavior and make deductions .. but that doesn't count.

    However, oddly enough, you *can* in fact observe some side effects that can tell you precisely if somebody blocked your Facebook profile or not. I also saw some side effects on Skype that allow you to know if others blocked you.

    Chances are it's really not from Maioush, these applications can be very devious in the way they present themselves.

    Yes, you gotta admire computers' precision. it's not 0.09 it's 0.0900000000000001, so you know .. it's not the same :)
    I'll round it up in the future, when I have time to scratch my head

    Sorry to tell you, go change your password as soon as you can. Your email has been hacked into by this website.
    Here's the terms of service of this site:
    b). The data which the user provides to BlockYell, will be used for e-mail marketing. This information will be treated with the maximum privacy, confidenciality and security regarding the actual legislation.

    They're using your account to spam your friends.
    And:

    Users specifically accept that their data can be ceded to other organization that are in BlockYell's network of associates and to other entities such as marketing companies. The purpose of this data cession is to deliver offers of different products and services that might be of the user's interest.

    So they're selling your date to other companies.
    They also state: The personal data of our users are stored in a database property of BlockYell
    So they're storing your information way beyond you have finished using their service.
    So unless you know what you're talking about. And I guarantee you, you don't. Please do yourself a favor and change your password. And don't use such services. There is NO WAY, no API, no trick, that can be used to know if someone blocked you or not.

    You are my friend, have been lied to.

    You're  not knowing it. You think you're knowing it, and they fake some responses. That's the best they can do. But I assure you, there is no way to know this. The services (Yahoo, Gtalk, Msn Messenger) do not provide for such interrogation. So what these sites do is social engineering, through making you believe that they're giving you the right answer
    And let's face it, if someone you "think" is blocking you, then they really ARE blocking you! You know what you did :)

    It's sad to see victims of scams so vigilant to prove scams to other people. That's EXACTLY how these sites continue to exist and propagate. When people promote them so violently without knowing the risks.
    Listen my friend, I'm what you can call an EXPERT of this SPECIFIC field. You can trust me or just continue to believe whatever it is that you wish to believe.
    For the rest of the people in the world who have the least level of concern, these sites are FRAUD. They CLAIM to know things they can't possibly know.
    I mean if Windows Live were able to provide such a service, I would say, I believe that. But when some shady site claims that. It is a HUGE deal

    And just to entertain the idea, go ahead and check if I have blocked you or not!

    And another thing, just because I have pity on you, I removed your email because you will be spammed to hell for posting it here.
