Spoofed invitation?

This morning, I received an e-mail inviting me to join a shared folder. I was hesitant, but followed the link and ended up at a sign-in page telling me I could sign in using an e-mail account. Of course, I didn't log in, -- the page looked genuine, but the address was did not mention Dropbox at all, so I bailed. The page asking for my e-mail address is http://acendedor.com.br/download/0120664d2039d372600568f74754e29d/

So I actually have two questions:

1. Is this a spoof? and, 

2. Is there anywhere that invitation would be posted when I log into my account for real (so I can verify it's a real invite?)
Thanks

It's definitely not a legitimate Dropbox website. Any shared folders that you're invited to would also appear on the Sharing page.

Thanks for the help, Rich -- good to know about the sharing page (I hope we helped keep other users from getting drawn in!)

I received an invitation to share a Dropbox folder from someone called Ana w, email skywalker3594@hotmail.co.uk know no-one of that name or email address so have not even touched the link, and will probably delete the email. Suspected spoof.
