No, I'm not sending you spam

Hi. If you've come to richi.co.uk to find out who's sending you spam ... it's not me.

Spammers usually send email with forged senders. In this case, using email addresses @richi.co.uk. It appears that quite a number were sent out over the last few hours, with subjects like "FW: whats up?" and "lol, I found a gold mine"

In tech. circles, this is known as a Joe job:
an incident of spamming designed to tarnish the reputation of an innocent third party ... most email Joe jobs are acts of revenge.
