    There is a spot near your name and address where your email should go, is then visible only to people logged in, and then makes it easy to contact you and verify your identity. Scammers tend to use callsigns that do not have an email correctly posted in the name and address area. Your email address is at the bottom of your bio page and most people, particularly those susceptible to scamming, won't read down that far to find it. Posting it there makes your email visible to anyone looking at QRZ without being logged in and it lets scammers know what your real email is so they can alter it and look legitimate. My advice is to put your email where it is supposed to go and remove it from your bio. By the way, your new helpful friend "Jollop Trobe" is probably one of the scammers that has been using your callsign. Removing it from the bio without adding it where it belongs makes their job easier.
