Phishing mail

I got a mail supposedly coming from team@englishforum.ch saying that I had a private message. The e-mail went on to say that if I added their ( Tina was name ) telephone number to whatsapp then they would send pictures. Under the name of Tina.
There was no private message. But the E mail looked 100% authentic that it was from EF. And it also had a link to the private messages on EF.
Unfortunately I deleted the mail so I cant show it here.

A phishing attempt??

No, a user that sent pmīs to users and now has been banned. With the OTBC apparently also all messages disappear. Other users received this as well.
