Morning

Just received this message appearing to be from the forum?

Hey DGMotors (My EMail address)! When I started Ross-Tech.com so long ago, I invisioned it to be a tool to help others in their journey through technical issues whether that be in college, university, or just work! I would love to keep this website free for anyone who needs help however it does cost quite a lot monthly to keep the website up and running. If you feel that you would like to support me and all the users at Ross-Tech.com, I encourage you to donate via the options below! All donations will be put towards Ross-Tech.com and all donators will recieve access to special giveaways, badges, ranks, etc. If you chose not to donate or wish to but are unable to it's perfectly fine, the website will still remain free just as it always has been.

I am also asking, especially that the request seems to ask for donations through an electronic transfer which I never do (but would be very happy to donate).

I'm not a Ross-Tech representative but that message is full of errors and does not sound like Ross-Tech one bit!
Absolute SCAM! Do Not click on link. DO NOT respond. Scam! :eek:

lol crypto donation addresses... the real question is how the email addresses were obtained and how the emails were sent. @Santos ?
Thankfully both addresses are empty so far:

Yep, definitely a scam. If any of you folks who received it would care to FORWARD it to Sales@Ross-Tech.com so we can see the complete header info in it, that would be appreciated.

ETA, nevermind, I already have it: "Hey Uwe (Uwe@Ross-Tech.com)! When I started Ross-Tech.com so long ago,".....
