Uninvited Phishing or Spam Mail

I received the following email tonight from '' as follows:

I hate to dive right into the sob story; but I just want you all to know how much this means to me. In September 2004, my Aunt Tina was diagnosed with a malignant Brain Tumour. In May 2005, we lost her. And then in September 2006 my Cousin Alfie, then only 10, got a brain tumour, also malignant. But the sob story ends there, because Alfie kicked cancer's ass, and he's made an amazing recovery and is now fully cured and fully awesome.

Although Brain Tumours are still seen by people as rare - they actually kill more people under 40 than any other type of cancer. As Brain Tumours become more common, that is tempered only by the fact there is a lot more that could be done in terms of understanding them, and better ways can be found in diagnosis and lessening mis-diagnosis.

I dedicate myself to train hard and to run the half-maratho! n in September - I aim to complete it in less than two hours. All I ask in return is you spare a few pounds for a cause I care greatly about. The Samantha Dickson Brain Tumour Trust have been leading the fight against Brain Tumours for eleven years - their aims and hopes are of complete success; they want to find a cure for ALL brain tumours. What stands in their way, in their words, is a 'desperate lack of funds for research'. This is something, in our own small way, we can begin to change.

I run in memory of my Aunt Tina, and in the hope that a cure can be found sooner rather than later. Here's the bit I didn't write:

Donating through Justgiving is quick, easy and totally secure. It's also the most efficient way to sponsor me: Samantha Dickson Brain Tumour Trust (SDBTT) gets your money faster and, if you're a UK taxpayer, Justgiving makes sure 25% in Gift Aid, plus a 3% supplement, are added to your donation.

So please sponsor me now! !

I'm not saying that this is not a genuine appeal, but I do not expect to receive it through my simulator website. Can a moderator or someone in control explain this email? I tried to find an access link on this website to report these kind of intrusions, without success.

Has anyone else experiences this kinf of communication fromk our website?

Best Regards Everyone
