    Maybe this poor Tim fellow just really wants to hunt! Lol- just kidding.

    Thanks for getting the word out Jerome- these pfishing attacks are constantly getting more and more sophisticated. I don't even trust emails from gmail or yahoo admin accounts. Any email with a link or file that you didn't personally request is risky.

    Surprised this is coming out of Poland. But I guess scammers are everywhere.
