My step-father alerted me a bunch of e-mails in his work e-mail account's junk mail folder that concern me. While the e-mail is a public account from cox.net provided to their customers. He uses this e-mail primarily for his business as an insurance salesman.

The e-mails are all supposidly return to senders for failure to deliver. However the e-mail accounts the e-mails are supposed to be going to are not ones my step-dad even vaguely recognizes, and the e-mail accounts the messages are supposed to be from are not my step-dad's e-mail address. There are 40 of these e-mails dating from October 19 of this year.

Here is a list of the e-mails:

That is a sampling, there are several more of these. If whoever helps needs more, my step-dad gave me access to the e-mail so that I could work on this. All the e-mails are still saved there. They all appear in the junk folder.

Most of them contain attachements that have never been opened. And many have links that have never been followed.

If this is truly a hacker then I really need to get rid of it as there is possibly a lot of sensitive information from my step-father's clients.

He thinks he's been hijacked and did a bit of panicing before asking me to do something. I admit to knowing jack and bleep about e-mail, and Jack left town. But I know more about computers than anyone in the family.

Removed e-mail addresses and deactivated link. ~ OB
