Hi,

A customer just contacted us that someone is using our email address for phishing scam .. how is this possible?

They obviously scraped the site as the email address is viewable.

Is there a way to stop this?

I can put any "from" e-mail address I want when I send out an e-mail, just as I can put any return address on a letter I mail.  There's really nothing you can do about it.

That said, make sure your mail server hasn't been hacked.
