    Google Network a Frequent Source of spam

    Thanks. a. yep, i get that, and in most cases it's just a "Dearest Recipient In Jesus" or some such that isn't worth anyone's time to pursue further. Only the most egregious spammers are worth any extra effort such as ones sending virus's, sending links in hopes of tricking some poor sod to give up bank, paypal or whatever info, etc.and those, if SC devnulls it, I'll FWD on my own. In the instance above I posted about, it was the email itself that they didn't want to hear about which was a change for them or at least how SC handled their spam. If it was an egregious type of spammer, then I may have fwd'ed on my own, but honestly don't remember the specifics of that one. Since then google have resumed accepting spam so no worries. :)

    Google Network a Frequent Source of spam

    I guess reporting spam to Google isn't appreciated anymore. Got this when reporting today. Similar to the twitter_doesnt-care-about-spam report address. ;)

    We must belong to the same Yahoo Mac user group as I remember that post. :)

    Google Network a Frequent Source of spam

    My ATT yahoo is pretty much spam free but the yahoo.co m one gets 4-8 a day, but sometimes none. Gmail tucks their spam folder out of sight so I only go there if expecting an email and have not received it, so I don't really bother reporting those much. There was a period this year when there was little to no spam in my yahoo and even someone in a Mac user group commented about their lack of spam. Perhaps there was a period of time covid was of use!

    Google Network a Frequent Source of spam

    I guess in some ways I'm looking for patterns where none really exist but for the randomness of what methods my yahoo spammers send me stuff. If I look in my gmail account it's stuff from all over the place. The consistency at which my one yahoo receives spam from google sources made me wonder what was up, and if google takes SC reports seriously at all. It probably means nothing
  6. Wondering if it's just my flavour of spam coming to my Yahoo that tends to be 95% sourced from Google, or if anyone else has noticed this trend? In fairness this screenshot shows multiple spams that were the same content I assume by their subjects. I really only report from this email account as it gets to be too much bother reporting my gmail spam which tends to be from the usual multitude of sources. Been reporting these google spams for several months now with no changes even with googledoc links in the emails too.

    I was going to make a new post but it seems it is not needed? What the heck is going on here? I don't come to the forums much but this issue has been going on a REALLY long time. I may have posted about it years ago but saw this thread first.

    Spoofed email?

    Yep, didn't see anything that was out of place. Reported it anyway just to be sure. I see we're in nearly the same time zone

    Spoofed email?

    I see, this is what is used to post spams in the forums so others can see it, correct?

    Spoofed email?

    Thanks @petzl. eman al guhani isn't my name. I got a reply back from DRI which said "Dear Eman Al Guhani,Unfortunately, we do not handle the customer service for Adobe. Please contact them directly with your request through one of the following methods:" This is odd that they addressed that guy despite my actual name being attached to my email account when writing and was in my sig at the end of the email. I'm on Mac OS so I only run Malware Bytes occasionally and AV's are really unneeded. I've only found the Genieo malware once a looong time ago via MB. But to empirically confirm this, I downloaded and ran 2 different antivirus scans and MalwareBytes. Nothing there. LOL now I need to delete the antivirus as it eats up resources when it runs. Anyway, RE: the tracking URL. Why would I do that? Can you run me thru the process? I received another email from Adobe today titled "Welcome to our Creative Cloud family, Eman" despite writing to their abuse team yesterday.

    Spoofed email?

    That's what's so odd is this one was not the challenge email but a purchase confirmation with an order # . The first one that arrived was asking for verification. Checking w/my one CC company, there are no new charges and DRI has not replied to me. I'm not gonna sweat it too much but still going to keep an eye out. I thought I was pretty good at spotting spoofs but this one I just can't tell what is going on. Below is the plain text from the emails with the corresponding SC report results in screen shots. FROM ADOBE (no-reply@adobe.com) Hi eman al guhani , Your order has been confirmed, congratulations! Please keep this confirmation as your proof of purchase.

    Spoofed email?

    I am getting emails from Adobe and Digital River Ireland re: an "adobe creative cloud" account which I don't have. "You're nearly there Welcome to Creative Cloud, eman. Before we can get started, we need to quickly verify your email address. Click the link below and sign in using your new Adobe ID: eman.photoATXXXX.com Verify your email Once your email is verified, sign in to Creative Cloud to get started." DRI sent me a "Your Adobe Order Confirmation" email today and the adobe email came yesterday, Bangkok time. My email name is emanphoto@ but the address these emails are addressed to is eman.photo@. Notice the period in the middle. So to test this, I sent an email to eman.photo@ and sure enough it came thru to me! If the email came to me, would it also go to the person who created eman.photo? How is this possible with completely different emails? Admittedly different only with a period. Neither digital river nor adobe have any CC card info on me as far as I know. I have emailed DRI to see what they have to say and how to proceed but thought I'd check with the email/spam experts here for any opinions for which I'll be grateful!

    I did fwd to them and the replies seem genuine at first but then all of them are the same with just a different person signing them.
