What caused me to question it was when I saw it said the new email address was @faithlife.net instead of @faithlife.com. I don't recall seeing anything from them from a .net address before (though I could be mistaken).

I also noticed this. And the whole thing looked a bit unusual. However, it was reasonably well done.

But as was already mentioned: From where did they get our e-mail addresses?

I wonder how many people clicked on that. The only thing that will save some people is that those most likely to click on it probably don't know how to add an address to their address book.

Whoever wrote this or edited it probably speaks English as their first language.

I do not know how to do this.  Plus, I do not know why I should do this.

Scooter, hold off on completing the request until Mark Barnes gets to the bottom of it. Is it real? Is it a scam? We have to wait and see.

I posted in the other thread. More evidence that this is not from Faithlife.

If this is genuine then two things need to be addressed in Faithlife's communication handbook.

1. Always use the receiver's details on file when sending. Opening with "Hi there," with no reference to a user's name or other details on file is a big red flag.

2. Telling people to "Open and click any links in our emails" is a big no no as it runs counter to all best practises regarding email links.

My nose tells me there is something fishy going on with this.

Another thing that makes this look highly suspicious is that it is signed "The Team at Logos". The company's name has been Faithlife for a while, since they changed it from Logos. Logos is just the product name now. They would not call themselves "The Team at Logos".

Let's not forget that people posting in the Logos forums are much more knowledgeable about these things than the average user. FL will have to figure out what to do with those who clicked the link. I am sure this has caused a lot of problems.

I have seen phishing attacks that were a lot more obvious. Still, I know of Presidents and CEOs who clicked the link.
