Beware of possible scams

It has come to our attention that scammers are circulating fake emails targeting Kdenlive users and content creators. I suspect this might target Shotcut users as well:

I have receive a couple of e-mails from people who have received some similar advertising solicitations:

Hello Dan. I just received the following email but from a different domain from meltytech.com or shotucut.org

I just want to confirm that is a real person from your company or projects or is it a scam since it’s writing from “shot-cut.space” domain.

Thank you in advance.
