E-mail Spoofing. Are You The Next Victim? Spoofing or Forging of our e-mail address.

As the illegal practise of 'spoofing' grows unrestricted, criminal spammers have now launched e-mail campaigns that look like messages sent by HolsterHeaven.com.

We at HolsterHeaven.com, as well as other respected businesses, have become the victims of crooked spammers who are illegally forging and faking emails so that it falsely looks like it came from our email address.

This spam does NOT come from us. This practice which is illegal is called "spoofing." Unfortunately, this spoofing is totally beyond our control.

We have nothing to do with such spam, which is a misrepresentation of our good name.

We do not send, and have never sent, spam email of any sort.

We strongly oppose the act of "spamming" or sending unsolicited commercial email (UCE).

If you have received such spam email from HolsterHeaven.com we are sorry, but emphasize that it was nothing to do with us and is beyond our control. We rarely contact our customers, and only do so if we have relevant informative or helpful information to convey.

We are doing everything in our power to track down these crooks and scumbags who perpetrate this criminal activity. We are doing this with the help of reverse engineers. We also intend to pursue these 'deviants' with all Legal Remedies' available to us. Of course it is expected that they will try to scuttle back into the crevices and under the rocks where they exist. However, we are assured that intense legal pressure from numerous pressure points applied all at the same time, will keep these crooks too busy to think about anything except staying out of Court, and jail.

What is E-mail Spoofing? (Faking or Forging)
"E-mail Spoofing" is the latest destructive trend in criminal spam. It is a practice used by many crooked spammers to falsify the "header information" in their e-mail advertisements. And the the word 'advertisement' is used here in the loosest sense of the word. Most of these spoofed email pitches are nothing but 'snake-oil,' whose only objective is to separate the 'mark' or 'sucker' from their money as quickly as possible. Chief amongst the offers are; fake sexual enhancers, illegal nonexistent university degrees, and of course the imaginary get-rich-quick schemes.

By changing the header information on the emails, these criminals can make the email appear as if to come from whom ever they choose.

Hackers are now routinely stealing the e-mail or Website identities of many people on the Web, and using them to send millions of pieces of junk advertising or offending e-mails.

The sad fact is that many average Internet users still do not yet understand what's happening with these fake emails.

Statistics show that thousands of legitimate companies are being victimized. Many people have already received fake emails which look like they come from legitimate companies such as eBay®, PayPal®, Citigroup®, WU, Barclays etc, but they don't, and are in fact "spoof" emails.

How You Can Help - Handling Spam Spoofers:

If you ever receive such spam-mails that look like messages sent by HolsterHeaven.com, please do this:

1. Report spoofed HolsterHeaven.com e-mails to us

Send the original spoofed e-mail as an attachment. (See the "send" menu of your e-mail program)
Sending the e-mail as an attachment is the best way to preserve the "header information," which makes it easier for us to trace the true origin of the forgery.

OR
If you cannot send the forged e-mail as an attachment, forward the e-mail, and include as much of the header information as you are able to maintain.

The headers we need are well labeled and look something like this:
X-Sender: somename[.]domain.com
X-Sender-IP: [10.102.6.3]
X-Date: Tue, 19 Apr 2006 21:12:06 +0000 (UTC)
X-Recipient: you[.]domain.com
X-OUID: 1

To find the header information, configure your e-mail program to show All Headers (this varies from program to program).

For Internet Explorer you can do this:
- right-click the unopened e-mail in your inbox,
- and then click "Options" to open the window that includes "Internet Headers," or "Options."

To track the actual sender of a particular message, we need this "extended headers" information.
If you simply forward an e-mail message to someone, these headers will be lost, so whenever you are reporting spam be sure to cut-and-paste the message header from the spam message and send it in the body copy of your e-mail message.

Please understand that we will not be able to respond to all of the e-mail reports we receive, but we do appreciate your help in bringing these criminals to account.

2. Report spam to your ISP.
Report spoofed e-mails to your ISP and notify them that someone has stolen our e-mail identify.
Be sure to cut-and-paste the message header from the spam message and send it in the body copy of your e-mail message, as described above (1).

3. Never respond to requests for personal information that may be contained in the forged e-mail.

4. Please don't do anything which might result in HolsterHeaven.com being wrongly blacklisted as a spammer. That would simply make the spammers successful in their criminal activity.

Unfortunately, none of us are immune from these criminals, and sadly the truth is that until something is done, the next victim could in fact be YOU.
