@markus-m1174 I would suggest you contact support at infoservice@magix.net

The e-mail address you mentioned sounds very fishy

@markus-m1174

I fully agree with what @SP. has written. Magix would not attempt to contact you from any email address other than one which ends with magix.net or possibly magix.com.

However, please forward the email you received to the address that @SP. gave (infoservice@magix.net) and give them full details. In the meantime, I would very seriously suggest you do NOT respond to the "invitation".

Hi

I agree with @SP. that the email is suspicious - you are the third person since 1st Dec 2021 to have reported potential 'scam' emails which state they come from official Magix channels.

@MAGIX_Redaktion @SP. @johnebaker @markus-m1174

Given the serious nature of this I am going to slightly amend the thread title and pin it to the top of this forum.
