Mine was from the same.

Is this some kind of phishing scheme?

I got one, too, just a few minutes ago. Sounds like everybody got spammed. I hope they removed the account that did it. Mine says:

Mine is from Qokohia. I was hoping for a cool name like "Renofabulum" but only got Qokohia! :-D
Apparently, *.pw has become a haven for spammers.

We can't fully prevent it, unless we disable PMs altogether. However, we made some configuration changes in order to make it harder for spammers. Please continue reporting any issues...

Thanks,
Jiri
