This was in my inbox this morning. I've deleted all the links and replaced them with x's so no one clicks on them. If I moused over the links they all start with o2.davinci-crm and I won't copy the rest for obvious reasons. Anyone else receive a mail like this? @Martin-O2 @Marjo are you aware of this?

@BambinoI think one other person had it. Not me but it was discussed elsewhere and we were wondering if it was being sent out to non active users to 'invite them back to the forum.'

That's obviously not the case as you are extremely active on here, so now it makes you wonder if it is a scam. I haven't had one at all  Confused

I'm certain it's a phishing email @Cleoriff. Every single link points to the same lengthy URL if you mouse over them. A legitimate email wouldn't do that. I'd forward the original mail to admin, but I don't have an address.

Thanks for raising this @Bambino! I'll pass it on to the team now to confirm if it's an official email or not. I'll give you a shout as soon as I hear back.

Thanks @Martin-O2. I'm certain this mail is not legit. If you have an email address I can forward it to, send me a PM so you can forward it to the team for them to see the links within the mail.

@Bambino From the content it could be legitimate but you did the correct thing reporting it. Could you take a quick screen grab and PM it to me. In the mean time I've passed this on for validation. wink

Haven't received one either and I've had loads of emails from (legitimate) O2 posts.

 

Thanks for the warning, though, @Bambino I'll delete it if it does come through. You can never be too careful.

I got the same one this morning. I suspected it was iffy but thought perhaps it was for a very old community account from when I first joined and couldn't remember the login details. The reason being, this went to an old email account that I rarely use and as far as I can remember, was never used to register for the old forum. It certainly didn't come to my registered email on here. Strange it didn't go into spam though so maybe it's genuine. I certainly wasn't go to try clicking on any of the links.

@Martin-O2 @jonsie has posted a screen grab, but it doesn't allow the links to be moused over, which is where the scam is, I believe.

Yes that's why I did the screengrab @Bambino and I do remember someone posted about this a few weeks back.
