My friend is receiving emails that appear to be from her own email address. The body of the email provides an email address to respond to. The message appears to be requesting funding for some environmental or such other project. When we place the sender's address in the blocked messages category these messages keep coming in. How does this nefarious individual do this and what can we do to obliterate this practice?
My guess is that you cannot block your own email address if it is the sender. Is that true.
The whole thing can be categorized as email hijacking and it is a most unpleasant form of human behaviour!
