Hi, Today I received a highly suspicious-looking email from the AAVSO 'contact a member' form. The name was 'Nancy William' - already suspicious since I have never heard of such a surname (as distinct from the very common Williams, with an s). There was no astronomical content or question, and the english was not standard. I searched for the user name (lovethph) and of course found none.

I have attached a screenshot of the offending article. It's a graphic, so clicking on the fake links wont work - just in case!

Well - actually I haven't. The 'Browse' button for file upload is not working. Mousing over it gives a 'no entry' icon. Therefore I have sent the screenshot to HQ.
