The only thing I can think is that I revisited the nderf site about a month ago to provide contact information in case anyone wanted to get ahold of me. Sometimes I am sadly a little too trusting and rush without thinking when sharing my story with others!
Hi, philipshadowfire. Thanks for your reply. That site you mention ( mycorkboard.ca
) actually exists: it was used during the recent migration. I still don't understand whether the message was genuine, but I have just heard from Dr Long, and here is a copy of his e-mail:
This is from Jeffrey Long, MD, and I did send the message from John, the NBC producer to many NDErs that John had selected. I talked with John at length prior to sending these emails, and this is for real. I just heard back from an NDEr that talked at length with an assistant producer at NBC. If philipshadowfire would like, he can forward to me the email that he received regarding this at my email address (firstname.lastname@example.org). I would then be able to confirm whether or not he was one of the NDErs contacted.
If it would help, please feel free to post this on the NDERF message board. I am unaware of any email that Jody and I have ever sent to NDErs at any time that has been used inappropriately by a third party for phishing.
Jody and I are often contacted by the media, including national media, who would like to communicate with NDErs. It is the NDERF policy to have the media source send us a brief message regarding the media event that we then forward to the NDErs that the media want to contact. This method is necessary to preserve the confidentiality of NDErs and their contact information.
Jeffrey Long, MD
If you could kindly forward the e-mail you received to Dr Long, then that would help him assess if he actually contacted you.
I am posting this to reassure all other experiencers that your privacy is protected.
