Thunderbird-accounts@mozilla.org dononation request


The other day I used my Ubuntu laptop to get my email using thunderbird and it came up with a note that Thunderbird support was no longer provided by Mozilla and was being provided by a volunteer team which needed donations. I donated $10.oo to allow my email to be accessed. Is this a spam or for real?

So has this scam been reported to someone at Mozilla?

Hi Phil...

I have no idea but if you'd like to contact them to let them know, perhaps you can find a way here.

Regards...

And if you gave them card details to make the donation check your bank statements.
