    Since day 1 I have use a distinct email address for my membership and all communications with BMWCCA. Over a year ago I started receiving fairly sophosticated pfishing and spoofs at this email address. The only explanation for this is that you have either been hack or someone internal has exposed information. I was just wondering if you are aware of this? The only reason I mention this now, more than a year after the fraudaulent email started, is because the volume of spam, pfishing, and spoof email sent to my BMWCCA email address has been increasing, and the sophistication of the email is good. My suggestion to BMWCCA is to do the only responsible thing and notify members that their information has been comprimised.

    There is nothing to notify anyone about as this is the first time anyone has mentioned this.

    Forward me a copy including the headers.

    I have tried sending email directly to sschlossman@bmwcca.ora and webmaster@bmwcca.org. It all is bounced back to me as undeliverable. Please send me an email address that is accepting email. Thanks.

    I haven't had any problem sending e-mail to Steven at his e-mail address and receiving a reply from him.

    That's odd. I get hundreds of emails a day. :)

    I would think that if the original poster's assertion were true, someone else would be receiving something of the sort. I know I haven't. I also know that some phishing scammers will choose a legitimate looking address from your own contacts and 'originate' scam emails from it. I suspect that's what's happened here.

    Often, problems of this nature result from the SENDER's domain being put on a spam/phishing blacklist. Mailing daemons are set up to scan black-listed sites and reject all mail from it. Try sending email from a comcast or other known good account.

    This was actually one of my first thoughts, especially since this seems to be an isolated incident. I'd suggest that the OP change his dedicated e-mail address to a Gmail address as they're pretty good at filtering out spam and I doubt that you'd have similar problems with that e-mail address.

    I have to say that every time I run across this forum topic, I crack up laughing before I remember what it's about...
