I've attached a screenshot of an email recieved through one of my Homstead accounts (websites@duffypc.com). I am simply forwarding this attempt to scam my account with Homestread. It does raise a question as well. How can email with specific account tags (websites@duffypc.com) embedded in the text be passed through the very system supplier (you; Homestead) the scammer is claiming to represent? Surely, like virus protection scanners work, you guys should catch these attempts from being forwarded through your servers.

Hello,

That is definitely a phishing email that you can disregard. Homesteads spam filter does attempt to catch and filter out such emails but some unfortunately do reach the server.
