is this phishing

Hello Warm Showers Friends,

        I have received today an email from a Nancy William, who says she is a U.S. Army General.

However the server she is using for mail is Russian. Have any other members been contacted

by this person? She is not requesting that I host her and I am declining to reply until I know more.

As a new member of Warm Showers (in Sweden) can anyone tell me whether phishing is a problem on this site. Thanks, Simon

I have not had any messages feom ths person but I did receive a request from Russia in December last year. The person was incredibly vague about when he would come or how many they would be ( me and some friends ) and told that they toured with very little equipment as they mostly stayed in hotels. He said if they could stay one night they would do some jobs for us. Sounded really dodgy and I did not reply. I think most people on WS are going to be genuine but with all things on ths great big inter web thingy there are going to be some scam artists and piss takers. Use your gut instinct.

I got an email from "her" too. I didn't respond to it. First time I got such a msge related to Warm Showers in years. Good to be aware of the possibility of phishing.
