Don’t Get Spoofed

Tips for avoiding spoofing:
When you send something to a group, send the email to yourself with everyone else’s email in the bcc: field. Politely remind your friends to do the same. Forwarded (and forwarded) emails are one way spammers collect email addresses to spoof. That’s why some of those “Reply to this for good luck” emails exist!
Never post your real email address on any public site. Spammers troll websites with programs, simply collecting email addresses to spoof.
Get a Google or Hotmail or Yahoo! email address to use for anything that could become remotely public.
