Email spoofed

Just to make you all aware that some lovely soul has spoofed our domain name (where essentially they mask their own email address with a different one) and has been sending out virus emails. The clever soul that did this also emailed us, so at least we know whats going on…

If you receive any emails from please don’t open it, just delete it. The email address doesn’t actually exist so it won’t cause us any problems but obviously we don’t want anyone thinking that we’re virused!

Cheers all
