In the past I think Freeola have asked them to be sent as attachments, this makes sense as the original email headers will then be intact.

Certainly helps with the "spoofed" ones, as we can tell precisely what IP address we need to look at!

As I said though, this is monitored quite closely, so anything generic that's hitting any large number of users get picked up by us anyway.

That's what I thought tbh, but just thought I'd ask again. Thanks both :)

Have always wondered which is the preferred way of reporting suspicious emails to Freeola Abuse?

In the past I have forwarded the email as is and I have also emailed it to abuse as an attachment.

Which way is of more use?


Either is fine from our perspective, but just to be clear one of my colleagues here is responsible for monitoring this on a daily basis, so any "obvious" spammers are added to the list quite quickly.

Had the first one ever slip through Gmail this week, other than that it's still working brilliantly (thanks again Hmmm...).

On another note I've just noticed this thread now has 200 replies and over 5500 views! :0

Blog article to go live tomorrow regarding spam, how to recognise and avoid getting caught out by it.

Hopefully this should be a helpful reference for our customers. :)

Not had this one yet Hmmm, but every recipient should KNOW that it's bogus, unless they receive invoices from THAT company ... and we all KNOW who we've ordered from and what it was we ordered ... :)

Guess it must be 'panic mode' that makes some recipients open the 'attachment' ... sad ;)

Glad(?) to see I'm not the only one that received this type of spam email.

The BBC news website have just published this article:
Phishing email that knows your address

"A new type of phishing email that includes the recipient's home address has been received by thousands of people, the BBC has learned."

They go on to say the malicious link will install 'ransomeware'!
