      Oh, I just realized this person emailed me at my address, not through the guild list – that’s good, that means the list isn’t being spammed.  But watch out for this message in your mailboxes anyway … still smells phishy to me.

      If anyone else gets this message (see below), I'd be wary of it if I were them.  It sounds like a phishing scam to me - especially since this person mentions checking out my website ... and I don't have a website.  Be warned, don't give out any information.  Any way we can get this person blocked from the list?

      Hey there,

      I'm reaching out to you because Thumbtack is getting a lot of job leads for blacksmiths, and I'm looking for another blacksmith who is interested in taking on more clients.

      After checking out your website I think you are a great fit for Thumbtack and I'd love to start sending you job leads. Please fill out a few details about your skills and rates, and I'll start forwarding you potential new clients.

      If you have any questions about what Thumbtack can provide, please don't hesitate to ask.
