Hi
I've just received an email from 'Mumsnet', which looks and sounds quite real. However it is written as if I'm new to the site (I've been here for about 5 years I think) and is inviting me to change my username. Is there somewhere I can send it to get it checked out?
Thanks, R

Forward it to contactus@mumsnet.com
I've always found them helpful.

Will report this & hopefully get it noticed ASAP.
Anyone else has had an email?

Quite a few people have received this email (including Zombie). It's a glitch in the system, not a scam.

Thanks, I've emailed them in case

Hi there RobberBride,

Yes - please do email contactus@mumsnet.com, and we will take a closer look.

Thanks Katherine, and thanks for confirming it was a genuine email. I am pretty sure I haven't updated my newsletter or email preferences recently - not within the last two weeks anyway - so there might be a glitch there?
