Assume so, I am not a current member but have bought tickets a few years back so may be an old email list.

Here is the twitter link

Got that too, as soon as you saw the phone number not being Glasgow you know it's a scam

My wife got the e-mail and clicked on the link within the e-mail on our laptop, any suggestions on what we should do to rectify as although me calling her an idiot got it off my chest it doesn't sort my potential data issue?

Thanks

Had an accident or injury that you're unaware of?


Well you could claim compensation. All we ask for is a small up front fee of 300 which we will reimburse to you after the court case.


Just email your bank details to - [email protected]


We won't share your bank details with anybody else.


Kind regards

I would thoroughly recommend taking the time to use the four Malware scanners listed here (all free):

Sounds like quite an up to date and nasty bit of adware, going by the posts from user OPUS on the TA forum:

Apology email from SFA just dropped into my inbox, passing the blame to a third party email list provider and advising anyone who opened it to run virus checks.
