There may also be other replies, but you will not receive any more notifications until you visit the forum again.

All the best,

I did not respond to the (disfigured) email address but checked the post instead, guess what it's fake.

All they wanted was a response on the email address.

Just be warned for your own safety.......

Hi eaa53

The user in question (eieigot) was identified yesterday as a potential spambot by Paul L (thanks Paul) and when I looked into it, it was clear that is what it was and the account and the 2 posts (one to your old thread) were deleted.

The forum system generated the e-mail you got as there was a reply to your thread, just that I had deleted that reply before you got to it.

Good advice to stay clear of dodgy looking e-mails though wanting you to click on a link (even if it looks like its from the forum)

Cheers, John
