So I got two of the following emails this morning. Someone is trying to spoof them. I almost went to the link because I recently registered with them to download the Kryomek rules, but I caught myself just before I did and said wait the grammar sounds worse than a 1st day ESL (English as a Second Language) student. Why would I download a payment, unless I wanted a virus? Here you go, one directly targeting our hobby! I hope Scotia Grendel hasn't got any hacking problems on their systems. The header isn't from them.
