Reset password request.

Hi all, i have just received an email from giffgaff asking me to reset my password.


I dont belive it is from giffgaff as they have addressed me with a user name that is not mine.


Anybody else had this?


Here is the email:


Hi specky,

This is a lot less painful than locking yourself out of your house. Simply click the link below and you'll be whisked to a magic page where you can reset your password.

This will reset the password for the member name: specky

Re: Reset password request.

hiya - it sounds like someone has requested a new password (cos they've forgotten theirs) however you have accidnetally received the email instead
In April 2016, I'm running the Plymouth Half Marathon to raise money for Breast Cancer Now, a charity that works to develop treatments and eventually find a cure for this terrible disease. I would be extremely grateful for any support to help me raise as much as I can: justgiving

Re: Reset password request.

It still seems a bit strange as the word "specky" is part of a username i use to log in to another online account?
