Where is the spam?


Hi Photoace,

Thanks for your interest.
The issue is that around the 14th of each month, spam has been arriving at a group of club members, where some of the members names are then slightly changed to lead to a spam site - is that spoofed?

It is possible that one of the committee in charge is unknowingly the cause (possibly via a distribution list) and I would like to (very tactfully) identify the errant computer or hacked email account.
 

Below is one I received.   I have substituted member names with numbers.

 

HEADER
From member 4 <but using the genuine email address of (committee) member 1)
CC to member 1, member2, member3


Hey,

Just take a look at these crazy stuff! It's something beyond my imagination, take a look here (warning: the following is a spam addresshttp://rosunkifro(dot)dryclean4less(dot)com/aeafxpr 

Best wishes, member 4

 

 

Is that helpful?  I have an idea but obviously want to put the query in the right forum  place.
