Something interesting happened while I was reporting a spam/scam email on Spamcop it showed this email to send the reports to: forged-ip[at]don.spamcop.net

Can anyone tell me why was this email shown for reporting the spam than the one that should have been? Hereis the reporting URL: https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6427587004ze793e9bd1ae8a89992c6ef428a559524z

Your Mailhost set? looks like Canadian mail server is not stamping headers correctly

x-originating-ip: [173.209.60.44]  Panama 

compromised/forged web and or email accounts
If Microsoft Windows Defender is available to you, use it
Change log-on to a more secure password-Phrase! 
Scan for Malware!

@petzl So the Panama IP is the one sending the spam email? Can you please tell me what is actually happening in the spam email. The headers aren't correct?

I am only using the Gmail web client and I don't recognize that my account has been compromised.

A old trick used by spammers is to name your computer (in this case) 
169.254.3.185

Misconfigured Mail server pick this up, then stamp it as source IP
The 
quote would be MY submission notes to the  Panamanian spam source, it is not a Botnet  but a compromised computer, I'm hopefully sure you are using a virus/malware scanner Windows defender is presently the best for WIN users (paid for when one buys Windows)
