Hello my dear

My name is Gladys. I am a young girl from Haiti, and i saw your email today at ( forums.overclockers.co.uk ) I will like us to be friends.. i don't know how you will feel about it and there is something very special i want to discuss with you which i will let you know once i hear from you as my friend. Please when responding, I will like you to tell me about yourself. I will do the same and also send my pictures to you OK?

Yours sincerely,
Gladys.

The need to express they are a "young girl" at all makes me feel a little uneasy.

Anyone else getting similar emails? Troll on the forum or an outsider?

The fact you have your email in your signature is the problem. Could be anyone as a spider can easily harvest it. If you had it in your trust only, then only members could see it.

Just some clever spam. Ignore it. You have your email available, so it's probably just found it and used it. Anyone with their email available (either in sig or elsewhere) is likely to be susceptible to such spamming.
