I received this email:
------------------------------------------------------------------
Subject: Kod potwierdzaj±cy dla tommy

konto użytkownika 'tommy' na Matrix Games ma powi±zany ze sob± adres email. Użytkownik z 213.76.98.173 wła¶nie poprosił o kod potwierdzaj±cy do zmiany hasła.

Twój kod potwierdzaj±cy to: f42c99afbc

Z tym kodem możesz zmienić hasło dla http://www.matrixgames.com/modules.php?name=Your_Account&op=pass_lost
Je¶li nie prosiłe¶ o to, nie przejmuj się. Po prostu skasuj ten mail.
------------------------------------------------------------------

It might be in Polish. It seems to concern my Matrix account. The IP is in Poland. Would someone look into this? Can anyone translate it?

Thanks,

Tommy

Its Polish alright but it does not make complete sense to me.
Looks like they are saying you requested a new password and this e-mail is sending it to you.

*Hello* Polskie ludzie nie mówi śmieci&. obmyślam was robi. Udaj się daleko syn wy dręczycie mnie.

I was disapointed by that movie. Seems every German catches one right between the eyes. My impression is was a rush job and like 'Midway' the added love interest only subtracts time from telling the historical story. (That movie makers never seem to think real history is interesting enough without adding a boy/girl story as padding has often caused me wonder)

Thanks Mogami,
I have to admit though, I can't figure out most of what you said (that's because I'm not smart enough to know Polish!). The main point is; someone pretending to be Matrix is asking me to verify my password with them. I DID NOT change my password.

Matrix Gents, please look into this.

Tommy

It has been forwarded to the Forum/board admisitrators (GODS)and hopefully they can get to the bottom of it. I just tested the lost username/password feature and it didn't look anything like that.

Mogami: Nah, that was quite good, though the mush was almost unforgiveable. I'll always remember it for the Luftwaffe strafing of the airfield when out of the clear blue that ME109 comes right towards the camera (I have the movie). Sure would've been nice to have seen that on the big screen. Some if not most of the dogfighting looked pretty fake, but it sure was a beauty to see anyway.

This could also be the latest virus making the rounds, which uses numerous headers and subject lines. If you haven't done so already, I suggest you run a full virus check on your machine.
