I have discovered a scam attempt, phishing for example

E-mail to

You can forward phishing and other kinds of fraudulent mails to this address. By doing so you help us detect campaigns against us and improve the overall security. We are greatful for your submissions! We do generally not reply, use instead if you don't know if a message is legit, and want an answer.

Note that there is no need to forward ordinary spam that just promotes something.
