Thanks. That is what I assumed. Not sure how they would get a name of a specific folder & ask to share it? It was an email & on a notification on dropbox. Never had this before on any other cloud service.
Is the folder in question currently shared with anyone else, or is it just a normal folder in your account?
If a shared folder invitation is forwarded from person A to B, then B would see an option to "Request Access" when they try access the folder since they weren't specifically added to the folder in the first place.
Yes thank you. I shared it to someone & they tried to share it on. My confidence restored in dropbox. Than%s very much for your help. These days with so many scams etc going on my first thought was hacked. Have a great day
