Phishing Scam

Xymbers Slade recently found something in one of his groups, "Just got this out of one of the Mentor groups I'm a part of --- those scammers just never seem to give up. So spread the word, that this one's a scam."

It should be reminded that it's not just Mentor groups open to such swindels, but any with open enrollment.
