Yep.  That's a phising site setup on a free web host.  Hopefully  MM admins have contacted http://www.awardspace.com/

Moderator Note!
yes it's a phishing site

one of the newest tricks the scammers are using is to hijack legitimate MM profiles is to send out phoney offers
this is one of the means by which they do that

Thanks for bringing this up
I'm forwarding the link to IB

I just got notification to my e-mail that I have 4 MM messages. Interesting thing is that I have it set to display the content of the message but none do.

The second interesting thing is if i search for the supposed  "photographers" who have contacted me (3 are identical, for advertising work) they don't come up in a search for photographers in my state and country.

Third interesting thing is there are no messages from either on MM.

The question is, am I being paranoid, is Mayhem glitching,  or is this also another phishing scam?
