YUNGSTER - Please Read Regarding Strange Email

Several of us have been getting a rather strange email that looks it comes from the forum. It is very much like the email that comes out with the trending posts. However, this one is thanking me for joining the forum, asks me to click on a link to set up my profile and click on another link to introduce myself. I am not a new member and already have a profile. In addition, it will list some trending posts, but they are all really old ones. I've received 3 of these emails and the trending posts never change. I worry that this is a phishing scam. Do you know if these are legit emails? Seems strange to keep receiving the same one over and over. I posted a thread several days ago about this email and that is how I found out others are getting it too.

I'm don't know much about computers, but I was going to try to copy and paste the email for the administrators. I thought because it was in the trash I could find it, but it wasn't there.

Do ascreen capture rather than trying tocopy and paste.

I'm not sure how to do a screen capture, but will try to figure it out.
