Fake phishing e-mail from “Collection@ HackersUnited.com”

It was brought to our attention that someone pretending to be us is sending out
fake phishing/scam e-mails from a non existing alias on the domain “Collection@ HackersUnited.com” via a G-mail account <[email protected]>

Hackersunited.com has the tendency not to send out any e-mail at all, we do receive a lot of e-mail but we rarely respond due to time constraints. We will never actively mail random people with requests.

Ps. Thanks goes to the one that send us this heads up.
