Fake invitations to join the editorial board of a non-existent publication

Attention faculty! A new phishing email is making the rounds that mentions the title of an actual article or paper you have written. After complimenting you, the email invites you to join the editorial board of a non-existent publication. It is unclear what the phishers will ask for if you reply to the email, but it is most likely payment to participate on the board.

There are some minor grammatical and spelling errors in the email, as well as uncommon use of greetings, syntax and words.
