Seems this is potential spam?

OK thanks
I know what a scam is there is no need to direct me to a link
I was looking for validity, not a lesson like a school child
I got another one today and as such It seems time for the ARRL to notify their members as I suspect some of the older hams might fall for this tom foolery

In the past, we have posted news stories about scams and bogus emails, but these days, you can find warnings about scams on broadcast television.

As you point out, people are only interested in warnings if they don't know about them already.
