Today I received an email with my own email address on!! On being curious that I did not send myself an email I opened it and it was selling me some pills. Then I received a message purporting to come from Family Historian Users saying "you have been unsubsribed from the Family Historian Users List" If this is incorrect please send email to :-
"FAMILY-HISTORIAN-USERSemail@example.com" I never asked to be unsubscribed !!! Is this also a scam ?? I have put this in also to warn others I would be grateful if the admin ie Jane etc would confirm or otherwise my removal and that the address above is a Good address. And if so the reason why I have been unsubscribed John
E-mail is notoriously easily to fake in many ways. It is quite easy for a Spam/Phishing E-mail to use a fake From address, that is different from the actual sender's address. There are techniques in most E-mail software to check where an E-mail actually comes from, but it can get quite technical.
So the E-mail selling pills, with your E-mail From address, is almost certainly faked.
The FHU unsubscribed E-mail may be a fake too, or just coincidental. The FAMILY-HISTORIAN-USERSfirstname.lastname@example.org address is correct as listed on the web page reached by following the Main Menu Mailing List link top left i.e. http://www.fhug.org.uk/maillist.php.

Thank you ALL of you for your help. I have noted that the Rootsweb address is correct and thank you Jane for adding me back in again. I have been with AOL and FHUG for many years and never had this problem before. John
