noisy but small
Nah this is the third dodgy email pretending to be from her . But yes it’s gmail
That's not actually true. Dots are ignored on gmail. firstname.lastname@example.org is the same as email@example.com.Ah... is it a google mail? US google doesn't use any dots in its addresses but UK does. If you have a dot in your uk google name then sometimes it confuses anyone in the US with the same name (and no dot), you get their mail. Well something like this happened to a friend and it wasn't hacking just fuck up.
Really? So if both of those above addresses exist and someone sends to firstname.lastname@example.org - will it end up in one of those mailboxes, both or neither?
I had a period of getting loads of stuff from SUV dealers and realtors in the mid-west US, seems to have died off now thank God. If I was more nefarious might have been able to swindle something out of that.For a while, I kept getting someone's Uber taxi journeys sent to one of my email addresses because they were using my email@example.com when I clearly owned the same 'firstnamesurname' - took ages to sort out.
I've also been sent correspondence about chamber choir practice in America, and once got copied into a family argument.
There must've been a point where it was possible to have the firstname.surname thing while someone else has the same without the dot.
I wondered that but it does seem to purport to be from her (name at end is same as name addressed to).
Was yours about picking up a car you'd bought etc though? Seemed bit slack to give a wrong address when you've just dropped several grand.I went through a period of getting random stuff from estate agents in small places in the US too but it also went away eventually.
No, think it was just about house sales and deeds and stuff. But likewise, it seems odd that someone would give the wrong address and not follow it up when they don't hear anything. The companies looked geniune enough when I looked them up, but you never know with these things.Was yours about picking up a car you'd bought etc though?

GMail sent from the Web interface doesn't include real IPs, for privacy reasons, so you're seeing a Google IP instead of the individual's.thank you! It worked - i think. Has come out with a bunch of info which of course i don't have any idea how to interpret. Does include an ip address which is apparently in california will that be the culprits IP? (aunt does not live in california).
