Watch out for those tired old ‘substitution’ email scams, they are doing the rounds again.
What happens is that you get an email from someone pretending to be an officer of your club or your Federation and they are asking you for some kind of help, financial of course. The latest one targetted our Federation President.
Note, emails are not being hacked. They just pretend to be someone else by covering up the actual send email. The latest emails came from email@example.com but a name familiar to you is being used to disguise that bit.
Report all such emails by forwarding them to: firstname.lastname@example.org

I was thrilled when I received the WPF results from the FIAP Colour Biennial, held in Greece.
We did so well to achieve 2 Medals; a FIAP Silver Medal to Tom Dee from Afan Nedd, with “Cuddles in the Coal Bunker” and a HPS Gold Medal for the Best Journalism to David Hopes from Bridgend & District camera club for “Number 18 Being Chased”. Congratulations to them both.
