Scam Warning (Forum-Related)

hummm I got the same email too … but at my general email address.
In any case, financial institutions never initiate emails.
Thanks for reporting this. I will look into into it with the company who currently hosts our forums.
I have a quick update from the software engineer at the company who hosts our forums. He believes it’s highly unlikely that spammers/phishers would be able to extract your email address from our database since it’s locked down behind firewalls to prevent any external access. He has not heard of any similar reports of spam, and there have been no known compromises that could have resulted in your email being acquired by an unknown source. He also advised that spammers tend to send out spam in waves, and there was probably a recent barrage sent that just happened to affect a group of Contiki users. Rest assured that Contiki never reveals user email addresses to general users in the forums, nor do we share your info with 3rd parties. I hope this helps calm any fear that your email address has been compromised.
Let me know if you have any questions,
I had the same email….?? Sydney, Aust… – is that a coincidence?
I think it probably just has to do with a recent barrage of spam sent in waves.
FWIW, fishers don’t need to hack a database to get emails adress. They have these randomizer programs that sends thousand and thousand of emails to random adress and yours could end up in the pot.
It’s like they say, if you have 10 million monkeys with 10 million typing machines, one of them is bound to re-write hamlet!
