Scam Email?

Question

@Div I have just received the following email

From: The Pie Shop <[email protected]>
Sent: 10 September 2017 17:31
Subject: Your account has been locked for security reasons
 

 

Hi Tynieness, 

We have detected 3 failed log in attempts to your account from Derby, Derby, DE23, United Kingdom. 

If this wasn't you, someone else may be trying to access your account. These log in attempts were unsuccessful and we have blocked the IP address from further attempts so no action is required. You may however want to change your password for greater security, especially if you use the same password on other websites. 

If this was you, you can safely ignore this email and you will be able to sign in again at 10/09/17 18:46. 

Reset my password

 

So is it a scam job as my account was not locked as I was in it at time?

Hovering over the 'Reset my password' link should answer your question.

Edit: don't click on it, FFS.

Indeed, though I think I will pass.

No, hovering over it should tell you if the link is to pieandbovril.co.uk, or totallynotascam.gieusyerpasswords.cn

Maybe Div's host can track it back to an IP address, then he can see if it's one that's been used by a P&B account.

Skidgate mk II.

Don't click on the link - it's a scam and they want to see you naked.
