I had another one in my e mail this A/M. Looks like this person has all our addresses as well.

There is no way that they can collect email address's from this site, however, if they got into Jeff's email account, and he has your email address, in it, there is that possibility. I know that Jeff has my email in his address book, and I have yet to get any questionable emails, so even that is a remote possibility. In fact, we don't know that the Jeff Hookway that is sending the emails, is actually the Jeff Hookway that we all know. My guess is it isn't the Jeff that we all know!

I am at 3 myself. All from different email address hidden under Jeff's email address.

Paul,
Thanks for the info.

If someone gets another email, and they know how to find the "headers", I might be able to contact the IP service and have the email shut down. Most IP (internet providers) take a dim view of email spammers, since it wastes their resources. If you Google "How to find email headers" along with your email server name, and then copy and past the information to me, I will work on this.

I keep getting one about a airline ticket or vacation package being payed out of my PayPal account. That one doesn't have Jeff's name on it. The Lions club here I western SD keep getting a request for a payment that is to have been sent to the treasurer from the club President. I guess all it had to. Do is work once for them but I wish these people would get a job

Bill Leverett 11-13-2017 11:52 AM

I know that it's not real and that clicking any of the links sends my computer to a place I don't want it to go.

How do names we know show up in these emails?
