Spam email using btinternet.com addresses.

In the last few days I have started getting spam from btinternet.com addresses including my own. Is anyone else experiencing this? It seems as if the BT database has been breached.

Hi.

 

Spammers often use ISP domains as the "From" email addresses in their spam runs, and quite a lot of the time their systems "choose" the end user's email address as the "From" address - so it looks like you get spam from yourself.

 

This is not new I'm afraid, and has nothing to do with any database being breached.

Re: Spam email using btinternet.com addresses.

I have also started to get these silly emails. Every email that comes has other btinternet addresses in the cc box. Most of them are caught by the spam filter, but not all. |I now get somewhere near 10 -20 of these aday.

 

They are annoying and i am also contacting bt about this.

Yes I have been getting many of these emails. Can't really do anything except to delete them unless someone knows another answer.
