Is this a spam email or not

Recommended Posts

Thank you so much! I was just so worried all night because I didnt wanna search up anything about it because I was scared :) but I really really appreciate that you told me it's a scam! I changed my passwords pretty much right when I got the email

It's relevant to how they got a password for an understanding how it can be used to manipulate victims of a breach.

They mean nothing.

The final one is just that the site uses the Microsoft CryptoAPI to obtain a DER encoded X509 Certificate from the Comodo Security Solutions, Inc., Online Certificate Status Protocol ( OCSP ) server and the site communicates over SSL.

Thank you awesome people 🙂

I received the same sort of email with an old password, 3 times. First thought was scam, and I'm glad to have my suspicions confirmed 🙂

I'm resisting the urge to reply to the sender to mess with them for a bit.

Please do not respond to the sender ( assuming the address is valid ).

Don't forget to check your email addresses at; https://haveibeenpwned.com/  to see where the password was harvested from in a site breach.

Thanks David. I did check the pwned site, where it states the address has been compromised, but it doesn't give specifics ("Collection #1", Exploit. In" & "Verifications.io").
