Spam email sent to myself via comcast.


Go to solution Solved by David H. Lipman,

Recommended Posts

I removed my first part on my email address in the post above.

Was this email sent from my email address truly? 

The odd thing is I have been receiving spams with the subject "Your_Name_Came_Up_For_a_Stanley_Tumbler_customer_Gift"

But today I received one from myself but the subject was "sssaYour_Name_Came_Up_For_a_Stanley_Tumbler_customer_Gift_Eminem

I don't access the email account on my PC. 

I changed my password already and already had 2fa on.

I was on the phone with Comcast yesterday about concerns yesterday and I don't know if they did anything weird.
