I received an email this morning from a Bob Fleming supposedly with Touchstone regarding the BlackBerry Alpha trade up program. The email looks way too much like spam. Wanted to check if anyone else verified the email is legit. Its from RFleming@TMGIdeas.com but I'm not sure how thats even a part of Touchstone.
"My name is Bob Fleming. I am on the Blackberry team, and am reaching out to obtain your information so I can retrieve your device.
If you would please provide the following:
Address - (Please NO PO Boxes)
City, State, Zip - if outside the US - Country and Postal Code
If FedEx is not available in your area, please let me know services which are most convenient."
The structure and everything about this email screamed phishing scam to me. The obvious mispelling of 'BlackBerry' and straight forward "give me your information" made me second guess the message. Especially since the my trade-up program shipping information was already provided on the online form.
If anyone knows anything about this message, please share
If this is a phishing email, hopefully it stops others from responding!
Solved! Go to Solution.

I contacted email@example.com about this and someone at firstname.lastname@example.org told me that it is ok.
They are the warehouse coordinating receiving the dev alphas.
