WATCH OUT: attempt to scam

ATTENTION! You may have received a rather strange email, supposedly from us signed by Giuseppe Scozzi, within the past few days. IT IS AN ATTEMPT TO SCAM!

It seems the FEP suffered some sort of a cyber hack and as you can probably guess from its content, it is NOT a real email from us, but a hoax or a scam, so please ignore the message and delete it.
The spam comes from This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (which is NOT a real FEP address) and it talks about financial obligation in rather bad English as well. If you reply, they give some bank details and even a fake invoice!

Be careful and don't answer, just DELETE the message.
We are very sorry for the inconvenience, thank you for your understanding.
