I have received an email apparently sent to me from my own email account. but it is a fake. the email was spoofed into my email account by utilizing google (gmail). this is extracted from the message source: Authentication-Results: spf=none (sender IP is 126.96.36.199) if you search for the ip-address 188.8.131.52 (whois 184.108.40.206) you will see: ISP: Google LLC / Hostname(s): mail-qt1-f172.google.com
so, the hacker (lets call them little boy) claims to have purchased access to my email account from hackers. but if little boy really has my login credentials he could simply login into my email account and send a genuine email to me, instead he spoofed it. this is the prove that little boy has no access at all to my email account nor has he access all the other stuff little boy claims to have._x000D_
so, in conclusion: DO NOT PAY anything to little boy, he has nothing but your email address which is useless!
