Is this a new way of spreading spam in forums?

Same old way, keyword SEO. They just try and hide them in genuine looking posts so they don't get noticed and deleted.

When it becomes spam, it's spam, but perhaps until then give people the benefit of the doubt or nobody new will ever join.

They don’t even bother trying anymore.

Just got an e-mail from ”Llyods“ addressed to Bernard asking him/me to click the link to change the password on the account. I’m not even with Llyods.

I read somewhere the misspelling and bad grammar is deliberate. I can't remember the exact reasoning but it wasn't to avoid spam filters, something to do with those they were targeting.

It's very easy to get caught even if your paranoid like me. I came within a click about a year back when a TV licence text arrived just when I was doing some banking stuff and the DD was due.

I believe it's actually so people who fall for them are more likely to complete the process of giving their details/paying money/buying junk.

Some percentage of people that share the spamlist your email address is on probably do! They aren't targetting you specifically, you are just an email in a list. :/
