The following email was sent to me a couple days ago, from MQL5 Support (noreply@metaquotes.net).  From the spaces in the links, and the fact that my personal info was accepted over a month ago, I am pretty sure this is either a phishing email or the links will actually download some nastiness on my computer.  Just thought you should be aware that someone is using your contest for some nefarious activities ....

Please don't worry, this is not a phishing email. It was sent to all users to remind them to complete their registration. Spaces in the links are connected with an internal error occurred during mailing, the error is fixed and will not occur anymore.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
