Email Issues…

It has been brought to our attention that someone has been spoofing emails from us. One common tactic used by spammers is the “spoofing” of e-mail addresses. When they send out their junk e-mail (advertising pharmaceuticals, pirated software, false invoices, etc) they will often send a genuine user’s e-mail address in their ‘from’ field so that the message appears to come from them.

Please do not open any emails from bill@shorehamfort.co.uk

The email content is as follows:


I was hoping to hear from you by now.
May I have payment on invoice #………… today please, or would you like a further extension?

Best regards

Please do not dial the number and please do not reply to the email. Please also do not open any attachments – they will contain a virus.

We can confirm that we are not chasing money.

Our only advise can be to block the user and delete the email from your system.

Please rest assured that our IT ‘man who can’ has taken steps to ensure that this doesn’t happen again.

If you are trying to contact us and we haven’t replied then please bear with us and please try again – it may be that your email has been caught up in the middle of this.

Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Talks and Tours

The past month has been a busy one, and it’s not over yet!

Along with the bikers beacon (which raised an astounding £846.60 for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal), we’ve also hosted groups for tours, and been visited several groups for some presentations.

The highlights:

  • Early in August Shoreham and Southwick Rotary Club join us for a tour.

  • A few days later, saw us giving a presentation to The Royal Engineers Association, Brighton Group, at the Royal British Legion in Lancing. Running in the background whilst they had their meeting wass Craig’s Bikers’ Beacon video.

  • We had the privilege of meeting some of the people behind ATN – Adur Talking News. These ladies and gentlemen meet weekly to record news stories and then deliver CDs to the blind or partially sighted so that they are kept up to date with local current news.

  • Following on from a presentation we did last year, we once again had the pleasure of seeing Worthing Steyne Rotary Club. They joined us for a guided tour.

  • Wadhurst U3a were our hosts at their AGM and our new projector was put through its paces, and proved a worthy investment, on their massive screen. Thank you very much for inviting us and we look forward to seeing you on site for a tour in the near future.

We will be at the Shoreham Airshow at the end of the month – come along and say hello!
