An email "FROM" Spamhaus

Email that appears to be "from" Spamhaus...


Email that appears to be "from" Spamhaus...
Spamhaus does NOT send out email alerts or notices to Internet users.

Anyone can put any email address they want to into the "FROM" field of an email, which is why spam rarely actually originates from the address that is in the "FROM" field, and why it is dangerous to assume that any unexpected email actually originates from the address seen in the "FROM".

Always check an email's Headers to verify where it really came from.

NOTE:
  • Legitimate email from spamhaus.org will only come from a DNS-verifiable spamhaus.org email server and is always signed with DKIM.
  • A red flag that we see repeatedly on such scam emails: they're not written in fluent English.
