NDT scam to get personal details

Dear collegues.

I have just recieved an e-mail which appears to have obtained my e-mail address from this forum.
This e-mail requests perfonal information for what appears to be the NDT conference in China, but I believe it to be a scam.

Below is the letter.

Re: NDT scam to get personal details

Hi Rubbers,
This is scam for sure. I have been receiving hundreds of fake 'offers from all over the world. Always look for the senders email id with domain name as yahoo.com or hotmail .com where any one can create n id like shell recruit @yahoo.co.uk
No company will offer a job just like that.
regards
Prabhu

Re: NDT scam to get personal details
Hi Philippe,

Since April 2007 email addresses in forum messages are displayed in a robot save method as well all email addresses of members' profiles, but it is possible that old form messages have been scanned by email robots.

Best regards
Rolf

Re: NDT scam to get personal details
In Reply to Philippe Rubbers at 00:18 Jul-05-2008 (Opening).

Mr. Rubbers,

I was surprised to find this discussion forum with my e-mail message to you last year. I want to assure you that my message and the forwarded e-mail from Chinese Society of NDT (ChSNDT) was genuine. I live in Canada and I was associated with the ChsNDT in the area of assisting them in communicating with potential presenters and participants of the 17th WCNDT eventually held in Shanghai in October. ChSNDT had many e-mail addresses wrong and their own mail server had a domain name of @168.com. This domain name was blocked by many corporate servers.

Somehow, through my Canadian mailbox I was able to reach many people the ChSNDT couldn't and I believe you were one of them. Did you end up attending the 17 WCNDT?
