I knew it was a spoof but didn't know if you were aware of it. I wonder how many other members have gotten it.

You are the first that I am aware of and hope if anyone else gets such they will contact us. I already reported this to our tech team and sent you a PM with an email address that hopefully you can forward the original email to. Thanks again

I got it. Thanks


We also changed the thread title here to reflect the situation.

I do too. But I felt it was right to let Admin know we're being spoofed. No good dead goes unpunished, I guess.

You can tell the message is fake by the grammar used and the way sentences are worded. Like "in general, choose the delivery of the item in hand."

It might be a good idea to let our contacts at FR know about this too.

Not really since the Forum nor our Classified Ads section have no affiliation with Forest River. So not sure why FR Inc needs to know.

Whatever, I just thought it would be a nice thing to do. You know that some folks at FR ARE members of this forum.

Yes, there are only a handful of FR employees here. Almost all are from the Motorhome divisions. Outside of them, there may only be one or two more and they aren't very involved.

I'm getting good at spotting the "Chinglish" used in these scams.

Bill, thanks for the thought. I saw it via the "New Topics" e-mail I get daily. As Bikendan mentioned, the forums aren't affiliated with Forest River or FROG, so we'll let their team take care of it, but I appreciate the consideration.

I think that if was FR and someone was using my name in a scam I would want to know about it. And, yes, I know the forum is independent.

I think it would be easier to find a company that has not had their name used in a scam/phishing attempt
