Has anybody gotten email supposedly from family members but with another email address after their real one?
I've gotten an email supposedly from my sister but actually from email@example.com. Here is how it looks:
firstname.lastname@example.org (sister's address--made up)
with a link to a site. The link is some offer with a warning from firefox not to go there.
The subject is :For (my name).
So, the scammer/spammer has her entire email address and my email address and full first name.

The spammer grabbed her Address List and is sending out spams. Hoping that you will trust the link because you think it is from your sister. Tell her to phone her friends and warn them.

Ugh, this happened to me too but from different email addresses. When my aunt changed her password, I got one supposedly from my sister afterward, so I don't know if they just switched targets after the password change or what but I think its a safe bet just to have your sister change her password and maybe yours too just in case. Better safe than sorry.Source(s): Wish I read this before I posted my own question about it lol

Its constantly despatched via a bloody porch-monkey, attempting to get you to furnish them your economic corporation information, only respond telling them to get a genuine interest to pay for their value ticket on the subsequent out going banana boat! I used to recover from 20 in line with day now i'm getting none, as they have now moved directly to pretending to be from the two Barclay's economic corporation or the Halifax economic corporation. attempting to trick you out of bypass numbers looks surprising that i don't even economic corporation with the named banks. I additionally save getting emails via some one mentioned as Walter who's attempting to flog Viagra, whilst exchange into the final time you heard of a Walter born in England, as Walter has not been a everyday call with the aid of fact the Nineteen Nineteen Twenties.
