I think they are really desperate for people to transfer points into VFF.
The only email I got from them (as in VFF) was the 15% VFF points bonus for transferring points from FB into VFF.
Didn't get any about them paying out people (in cash or other means), for transferring points (or not trabsferring) from other schemes into VFF.
Edit: did you hover over sender on a laptop?
I know you say email looks real.
