Personally I’ve gotten these kinds of messages a couple times, but there’s no reason why I would ever send files directly to a user anyway. If they are having a problem downloading the theme, this would be an issue to contact ThemeForest support.

So, instead of accusing them of not buying the theme or trying to explain what it means to send me a message through my profile page’s contact form, I just tell them what I said above… mm in a nicer way, lol.

Never heard of this, but now I know to keep a strict eye on this type of email.
