Msg to Edmund Hodges. Looks like you have been hi-jacked again. I have just had a request for £200

Edmund is aware of these messages being sent and is in contact with his ISP.
If you look carefully at the “from” address you’ll see that someone has registered an account with Edmund’s ISP in Edmund’s name. But they have inserted a full stop (.) between his first and surname. His real address does not have the full stop.
The messages sent to me allegedly from Edmund seemed suspicious so I challenged the sender to give me some information only Edmund would know. The messages then stopped. When I got back home I realised what the perpetrator had done.
If you use your full name as the first part of any email addresses be careful you aren’t caught the same way!
