Thank you very much for raising this. We've banned the user and notified our support team. They will investigate this further. You're absolutely right pinky3, don't follow the link. We'll post an announcement to let people know.
Thanks again and apologies that you received this!
Yes I had the same message. I have reported it to the moderators as I was concerned. I would recommend that no one follows the link in the message as it seems a little suspicious.
