Today, I received a threat on my personal email at biz-comm.com. I am posting my alert to my clients, which I did via our in-house mail list. Headers in the email can alert where the IP comes from, and then the server can blacklist.
In the email headers of View All, you can see the IP number this came from, ie, 188.8.131.52. Once I know that number, I can blacklist that server.
I was so amused to learn that the threat included that I was visiting “intimate content sites” with a “vivid imagination”! *laugh*
So this is a bogus threat of trying to blackmail email users for $500. Clients: Contact me if you get any of these so I can find the IP number. Do not delete the email because I will have to walk you through how to see the hidden headers which reveal the sending IP.
