Ha,

My joy was short-lived today when an email arrived telling me of a significant tax refund from HMCR.

I wonder how many people will click on the link to 'filoglubranda dot com' and give up personal details.

HMRC would just pay any refund into your bank account, and would most likely write or at least use the 'registered' email.

B@stards.

But, in my experience, they wouldn't do it till a year after you'd died, when Hell had frozen over.:ph34r:

That's for a position as a money mule for a phishing gang. You receive the stolen money into your account, and you send it by western union to them. That way, when the victim discovers their account has been emptied and reverses the transfer out, you are the one who ends up out of pocket, not them.

In another variant, they order goods with stolen credit cards and get them sent to your address. You then forward them on out of the country.

How do you find out the IP and country of origin of an incoming email?

Apologies if I'm being really thick!

Thank you.

Thank you.

When you send someone an email, it gets sent from server to server before reaching the recipient's inbox.

Each server will usually add their name and IP in the "header" (= hidden) part of the email.

When you open an email, look for an option called "view full headers" or similar.

If you know a computer IP address on the Internet, there are free online services to determine the country of origin:
