    Question Is this real or scammers /spammers?

    Greetings,

    I'm hoping to include your message board posting about using CFLs in the
    October issue of This Old House magazine.

    Only hitch is, I need to know your full name, and the city and state in
    which you live. The TOH message boards are great fun, but all those screen
    names can look a little strange in the print edition of the magazine!

    If it's not too much trouble, please email me your photo, too. Any friendly
    looking digital shot of your head and shoulders will do.

    But: The sooner the better for us. Our editing and art design deadline is
    fast approaching.

    Thanks for your help!

    Best regards,

    Amy R. Hughes

    Only hitch I see is no email address.

    Many of us have received the same or similar email for contributions to the magazine. You can give permission without all the personal details if you wish.

    Look at the "From" address on the e-mail. That's the e-mail address you would use. If it's some funky address it could be a phishing e-mail. If it's from thisoldhouse.com or timeinc.com it's probably legit.
