Anytime you have a 50-50 chance of getting something right, there's a 90% probability you'll get it wrong.

Forgot Password

This is the standard message that's sent out when you use the forgotten password feature.

It looks like another user thought they were registered as "Don B" and used the forgot password feature, which generated this email.

Don B - maybe you forgot that you forgot your password! LOL

rightly suspicious

Don B is right to be suspicious and careful of an email like this that he hadn't requested.

There are a lot of slimy folks engaged in phishing scams.

suspicious

As I told JM what really made me suspicious was when I looked at the full header and it said "the received from IP address may be forged by CGI script", but JM said that was normal for the POI factory.
