I have recently received an email from Paypal. I have never used paypal in my life, nor do I plan to. I immidiately became suspicious, and went to the actual Paypal.com website. There, there was a help section that listed fraudulant email formats and such, as well as the intructions to froward the email to 'firstname.lastname@example.org'. This I did, but I was wondering if there was any way to detect exactly where the email originated. I suppose I'm after a type of passive vigilante justice, but all the same, I think I might find solace and satisfaction in knowing that these people have been tracked. Thanks in advance to all that can provide any guidance.
