     Solent,

     Do you have a Link to this individual's profile? And, what type of things is she sending to you?

Try looking for evidence of repeaded spam by viewing  & identifying its origin. Click on the 'from' email link and view full message headers this shows which ISPs the spam message went through on its way from the spammer to your Inbox.

A header should contain
  • From: - The sender's name and email address.
  • To: - The recipient's name and email address.
  • Date: - The date when the message was sent.
  • Subject: - The subject line.
The headers from spam are complete crap, this is part of what I found in spam sent to me

It is possible she is being scammed herself...I have a hotmail account I never use and suddenly it's started sending automated spam mail to all my contacts..therefore making it appear I am sending spam..If however she is spamming you send a report including a copy of the traceroute to her  ISP provider. Let us know..

AND WELCOME TO THE GROUP!

Solent I have deleted your original post and copied it here but removed the email as I'm sure it is violating Care2 terms. I also think she could have been phished..Have you contacted her at all? Also try blocking the ISP in your mail options.

original post
Yes, I've already checked the headers and all are definately from her....here is an extract from one taken at random from the deleted folder waiting for the weekend when all are removeby the mailbox servers programme (FSwebmail).

I have no idea whet the contents are as all are just comprised of live links that my security block as soon as I look at one of the e-mails.

     Solent,


     Are you sure that you got the Tracking Cookie from her Website? Because, I went there and then I ran my AVG and my Spyware Terminator and I didn't pick up anything. I have no idea why you did and I didn't.


     I do have a suggestion for you though, it is in regards to what Andi just told you. Her Yahoo Mail could have been compromised by a Hacker and the mail could have been sent out as Spam. This individual doesn't even have her Website listed on her Profile and she has never created a Share that was an Advertisement for that Website.


     Try calling any further Emails from that Website as Spam, that will block them from coming into your Inbox.....Tell me, this is obviously going into your Personal Email Account, right? It isn't coming into your Personal Messages here on Care2?


     I will also check into this a little more and I will let you know what I find out, ok?

Hi

Thanks, Suzanne, for inviting me to this group.Spam and bogus petitions have been a pet peeve of mine for a long time. In the last three days I must have reported about 10 petitions. I am not computer literate so bear with me. I am excited to be in this goup and I hope I can contribute something worthwhile. Iris

Thank you, Suzanne, for inviting me to this group. I sent this post earlier and it didn't go through, so here I try again.
