Let me say that I have no doubt that the email referred to by Roberto
Gaetano is indeed a forgery. Apart from the tracking details, it's
interesting for several reasons. Some of these are:
(1) The true Roberto Gaetano shows the From address as "Roberto Gaetano"
but the forgery shows it as firstname.lastname@example.org.
(2) The forgery is addressed to Mark Measday with a copy to GA. One
wonders why the forger wouldn't just send it to GA. [That's a puzzle don't
you think, Mark?]
(3) In my copy there is a character in the word between "numbers" and
"work". This is in the shape of a square. If I represent this character by
an asterisk, the faulty word is "doe*n't". Is this a transmission error or
(4) The spelling has several mistakes. I'm not sure about "Ester". The
mistakes are as follows:
(a) "your that girl" should be "you're that girl"
(b) "little perl" should be "little pearl"
(c) "doe*n't" should be "don't" (rather than "doesn't")
As only a few subscribers to the list make these sort of spelling mistakes,
this might narrow down the field somewhat.
