Scam

These days we get lots of scams of all different sorts.
Received a slightly different one titled
"Toyota GT86 and Subaru BRZ Drivers Club"
with the following message

"Hey. Winter this year is terrible. So you want warmth and comfort, but instead cold and loneliness. I would like to find a man with whom you can spend cold winter evenings together. Can we meet? Here are my nude photos"

Yes the link is missing I haven't included it nor did I click on it

All they will be after is information.
The orginal sender had nothing to do with GT86 owners club when the email address was broken down also the English is off as well.

I got almost exactly the same message sent to me on the Driver's club forum. I've haven't received any on this one.
Lots of other people also got sent spam messages on that forum too.

I had exactly such winter/find a man spam PM from 'ferum' named member on gt86.org.uk.
PM was titled though differently, "Hey. Will you help me?"

Was that on a PM on here or via mail? As said, the Drivers Club got hit (I also got a PM on there that generates an email) but I've not received any reports on here yet.

If anyone does get anything like this on here, then please report it ASAP and one of us will deal with it.

"Oh those Russians."
