Hi @Halfwaytree 

This is definitely  a scam and you're not the first to report it.

Probably best not to include a link when reporting this as someone might click on. 

See  here  for something similar thanks for @shutter for first pointing this recent attempted scam.

They still owe me from a couple of years ago,    Undecided       so I don`t think you will get anything back. !   Cheesy

@Dan_the_Van Just as a point of interest, the return email address is a little concerning?

@jab1 

I see what you are saying, but would say that's added to make it look more authentic as noreply would suggest know one will read the inbox, but why @community-mailer.plus.net !

Re: Spam?

Agreed, Dan - it just seems strange, as you say, that they use the 'community-mailer' address.

Re: Spam?

Second time have received a scam email for different amounts, so very annoying.

Reported both to the abuse email address.
