Once again, just like last year’s scam email about a speaking engagement at Queen Mary University, we need to give the members of GeneaBloggers a heads up. It appears that a new spam email has been sent to various members especially those listed on the GeneaBloggers Speakers Bureau and GeneaSpeak. The email is an invitation to speak at a youth conference next month in London . I would urge GeneaBloggers members to disregard the email and mark it as spam – mostly likely the person sending this email wants access to your personal information and bank accounts.
