Dayem!! This shit is on another level. This dude's clearly an opportunist!
Like hilaraiousandco said report the PM to the mods and I hope theymos issues a public warning against such fake mails.Hey you should have the email address of the sender in your mail-box right ? Please disclose the email address.

*Another reason to keep your email id's private on bitcointalk.

You really should change the title of this thread to something like "Fraudulent email from Theymos about new software!" or something that reflects this issue.

A lot of people won't read this thread because of the generic title.

I'm into creating universes, smiting people, writing holy books and listening to Prayer Messages (PMs).
I will ignore your Prayer Messages unless you donate to 1CDyx8AUTiYXS1ThcBU3vy4SJWQq6pdFMH
