O2 as an education tool: beware of spoofed emails

My daughter just got an email address and while teaching the whole “don’t answer to emails from people who you don’t know”  story she replied that she would make sure the ‘from’ address come from somebody she knew.

Well … I said … not always…. 🙂

And nothing better to prove the point than sending her an email from a very unlikely source 🙂
