Spammy private message

Anyone else receive a spammy message this morning about winning an iPhone?

 

Don't click any links in it either, unless you feel like a IT tech cleaning your pc up :smile:

PRIVATE MESSAGE RE WINNING IPHONE

Hi Everyone,

Not sure where to ask this/who to contact so here goes. I received an email today claiming it was from Bunnings Workshop. It said I had a 'Private message', which asked if I wanted to win an iphone 12. It looks authentic, but I just thought I'd check here before clicking on any links. Is this authentic???

Thanks very much.

Lizzie

PS and I also can't find any way to read any private messages on my Workshop account anyway.
