Default Spam emails with arabic letters from personalwatercraft.com

Does this look like an official notification from PersonalWatercraft.com? What about the link to login to access the message? My forum login does not work and that is why I suspected a phishing type of email.

If I didn't know any better, I would say someone has attacked your website and/or forum. I tried responding to a normal looking message from PersonalWatercraft.com and I was sent to what looked like a cloned website with arabic letters.
Any one else having this issue?
One of the emails is pasted below for reference:

Привет!
Все развлечения и общение в одном месте, больше ни каких поисков, вирусов, испорченного настроения.
Ни какой отправки смс, оплат, ожидания загрузки, покупок дисков.
Только на http://indagame.net/ - сразу и все, бесплатно и на русском языке.
Я сказала ХВАТИТ когда увидела что:
журнал браузера был готов лопнуть от тысячи закладок;
полки от сотен двд и сд;
десятки блокнотов в которых были записаны серийные номера
и данные регистрации от программ загромождали стол;
поиски кряков, сериалов, а после этого переустановка системы из-за вирусов;
вечно пустой кошелек от покупки игр за выходом которых нельзя угнаться!

Я искала и НАШЛА всё и сразу в одном месте, с теплым и дружественным гейтом,
гибкой поддержкой, разумным и удобным интерфейсом.

Играю прямо в браузере или качаю на компьютер без ожидания очереди и оплаты,
завожу новых друзей и подруг прямо в играх и на форуме,
имею доступ к более чем 4000 играм и все это и много другого
если ты выбрал глобальный игровой портал: http://indagame.net/

Thanks Bill, I checked the names and they are not in the system. Are they showing up as PM's that are in your inbox as well?

There are times when things like this begin to have global expansion and frustration. I will be back soon and follow up with a response.
