Email re Resetting My Pasword - is thias a Phishing email?
English

I have had an email from a Paulo Napp @ a G Mail account asking me to log into this site via a link in the email and reset my password.

 

I assume this is a phishing email but have never had a phishing email from What Hifi Before.

 

They obviously want to use my account to dsebate cables

Can someone please confirm this is phishing or not?

It makes you wonder if WHFS&V had a security breach, how did the spammers get everybody's e-mail account ???

Spam,Spam,Spam...... Some git has collected a list of names from the site and is trying to pinch our passwords. He /she will then use the passwords obtained to try and hack bank accounts etc.

The email was sent out accidentally. Check Joe Cox's response in the other thread in HiFi section. Ignore it.

Sorry folks, it was human error at our end, nothing to worry about just ignore the email. It was one of our dev guys doing some test work, that's all.

Wow. Sorry, have been watching the football, so have only just seen all the mails I got on this...

EDIT - actually, have seen that many were sent this afternoon, but have only received them en masse this evening. Odd...
