Zaxon Posted March 11, 2007 Share Posted March 11, 2007 Hi, I hope this is the right place to be asking about this. We keep getting e-mails from someone that appear to be of the phishing variety. The strange thing is when looking in the header it is saying the e-mail is from randomname[at]myispaddress.freeserve.co.uk (Where myispaddress is actually my own e-mail address that I use.) I've tried using DNS WHOIS to try and find out the ISP of the people sending these e-mails but I don't really know what I'm doing and all I get is; Using 0 day old cached answer (or, you can get fresh results). Hiding E-mail address (you can get results with the E-mail address).

The other info I got from the header of the e-mail was (I think) that the original e-mail address was [at]hitel.net, the IP used was either 127.0.0.1 or 127.16.87.160 and the site that they wanted you to enter your personal details into was www.stelkertster.com I think this website domain name is registared with THE NAME IT CORPORATION DBA NAMESERVICES.NET Again, I'm not sure if I've been using these tools correctly to identify the origin of the e-mails. But what is bothering me is the fact they are seemingly being sent from my own e-mail address. The virus checker on the computer is up to date and hasn't picked anything up. Can anyone tell me how this is happening, and how I might find out who to report it to? My own ISP (Orange) says on their website to report it to whoever sends the spam ISP rather than themselves.
