Winston please can you use the October Firefox & You security focused newsletter to help users address email scamming in general.

We are requesting this to be set up as we are receiving many notices that people in the UK are getting spammy emails regarding Firefox.

Hi Jane.  cc-ing Winston since he wasn't on this bug.  
If either you or Winston can add some more direction here that'd be great.  Also, timing (etc) so that Matej has something to work with and can get started.

Did anything get into the October Firefox & You security focused newsletter? This request was prompted by a scam in which someone pretending to be Mozilla sent an email to many people (not just in the UK but all over the world) telling them they'd won money from Mozilla. In the last couple of days we've received notices about 2 more similar scams, one involving text messages telling people they;'ve won money.

Good question.  Not sure.  Winston? The September newsletter that just came through has a bunch on privacy.  Not sure about Oct.

There are two bugs on this topic.  Just commented on the other.  We will include something in the October newsletter that's focused on security.  Thanks.

We're definitely going to include something about email scams.  Spoke with Carmen briefly today and asked her to add it to the outline for the Oct. edition.  Not sure where they'll be pointed yet.  If her content hub is up, I assume there.  If not - it may simply be embedded in the article - or perhaps we could talk with security and/or privacy team about a blog post.

thanks Winston and Carmen. Let me know if you think there will be an issue with hosting the content and then we'll need to talk to the SUMO team to host. thanks.
