Is anyone having trouble with genes, I am having emails saying that people want to get in contact with one person and then when I click on the message it is for another person they are loking for. Any ideas in what is causing this, could it be the sender or is it genes?

I would report it through feedback at the bottom of the page, sounds like something is wrong?

I have already done that, someone did apologize and said that they just used a name. Also having trouble with names that I have deleted coming back, have reported this as well. All I get is they are looking into it.

Well at least they didn't say it was a problem with your computer and nothign to do with them, that's what they usually say in a standard email they send without actually reading yours LOL

As for deleted contacts coming back in your list...that has been happening since they err....improved....haha....the format of this site last year.
