Suspicious E-Mail

Just a heads up, I received a very suspicious e-mail that seemed as though this site's security has been compromised.

No, it's just a spoof. They can spoof any email. Ours isn't special, nor has it been compromised.

If you get an email like this, please mark it as SPAM in your email program. If you look at the real sender (view email source -- or view headers), you'll see that it's not us at all, it's a totally different email address and domain. The one I received was actually from dreamfact.net. You can ban that domain from your email if you want. Just go into the filters or security settings of your email account (whatever provider you use) and look for filters or ban addresses, etc.

Type in this: *@dreamfact.net

Then you won't get emails from them anymore.

Of course, that won't stop others from spoofing us. It happens all the time with all sorts of email addresses and there's no way to stop it.
