rconner Posted October 6, 2007 Share Posted October 6, 2007 While trying to report a job scam that contained a Gmail address, I tried (in vain) to find someplace on the Gmail website to report the abuse. I finally resorted to an e-mail to gmail-abuse[at]google.com. I immediately got a pro-forma response referring me to an abuse reporting web page. When I went to this site, i was sent through a catechism and finally ended up at this page, which says in part: Does the Message-ID field from the headers read [at]mail.gmail.com? Are there DomainKey or DKIM signatures included in the message headers? For more information on reading message headers, please click here.Yes, the Message-ID from the headers reads [at]mail.gmail.com and/or there are DomainKey or DKIM signatures in the headers. No, the Message-ID from the headers doesn't read [at]mail.gmail.com and there are no DomainKey or DKIM signatures. If you pick "no" you get a lecture about spoofing and an inviation to send your report to spam[at]uce.gov. Evidently, it is OK by Google for Gmail subscribers to use their addresses to steal from people, so long as they don't send the mail through Gmail itself. -- rick Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
