Hi friends

This is to advice all Hoverfly discussion list members that the 
follow email that I just received is probably the work of a malicious 
hacker or Spam. All of us get a lot of these messages (unfortunately) 
and as is common in most of e-mail messages asking for money, bank 
info etc.. are not true!!.

I do not test if Dr Ghorphade need help in UK but I found similar 
messages in the web... with other persons... unfortunately hacker get 
also the true signature of Kumar... it is not complicated... only 
copy paste...
