I met x online, gave her my mac email address and she sent me an email that appeared in my inbox as:- x y z <firstname.lastname@example.org> x, y and z being her names. I have never heard of the @cheerful.com email address so googled it without much luck, except that it is an address used by "419 advance fee fraud" scammers. I also found this:- http://www.loginto.org/cheerful.com-login Additionally, when I look at the email "details", apart from the "Return-Path:" in the 1st line, her email address is not included, just mine. When I look at other emails that I have received from genuine people and firms, the "details" include:- Original-Recipient: my email address Received-Spf: text including senders email address These lines are consecutive. The email from xyz only includes:- Original-Recipient: my email address There were no visible links in the email. Can anyone advise me on the validity of the @cheerful.com email address and if she is likely to be a scammer? Edit: Strangely, I have just received another email from her that went into my iCloud junk folder, that had just a link to her email address, the "details" of that email include:- Original-Recipient: my email address Received-Spf: text including her email address .
