I just want to bring this to the notice of anyone who might have experienced a similar thing.

I posted a fresh email address as part of a comment I made here on EA Forum some weeks ago.

Interestingly today I got an email message on that email address (from someone calling themselves "Hacker"). The message stated that EA Forum database had been hacked.

I don't want to post the message as actual text content but here are screenshots of the contents (hope the words are legible enough to read):

 

 

LOL, obviously this is some type of spam/scam so be informed. I'm also curious to know if anybody else received the same or similar message.

Moderator here: Just to confirm: you posted this email address in plaintext in a comment, right? This person didn't need to obtain privileged access to the Forum in order to see the email address?

Yes it was in plaintext in a comment. They did not need to obtain privileged access to see it.
