I just got an email that was supposedly from CheatScapes, updating me on the availability of new trainers. The From address says (CheatScapes.com@mail.vresp.com).

The reason I'm concerned about this email is that the links to the new trainers show different web addresses than what is hyperlinked. For example, in the email the link to the new Civilization V (PC) +21 trainer says "www.cheatscapes.com/title_index.asp?titleID=271", but when I hover my mouse cursor over that link, the address displayed on the bar at the bottom of my browser (Firefox 3.6.10) says "cts.vresp.com/c/?KennacoAssetsLLC/293b95ab6b/73903cfbf9/60d5f5c317/titleID=271".

In my experience, when the real web address is different from the hyperlink text, then I've got a phishing email. Is there a forwarding address for suspect emails?

This is nothing more than a tracking URL and is completely safe. This email is valid and from CheatScapes.com.
