Re: Can’t forward spam email to spoof@paypal.com

I was having the same problem forwarded a suspicious msg w/ my gmail account--"message blocked". Finally figured it out. Gmail doesn't like the suspicious links w/in the email body. So choose Forward to spoof@paypal.com, delete the links within the message, and forward that. It worked for me!

I've tried your suggestions and Gmail or Outlook blocks the message.

Please help, I'm concerned I may be the victim of fraud.

Tried spoof@paypal.com and Review"at"paypal.com, why don't you try and stop repeating solutions that don't work?

Me too. I have tried to forward a scammer email sent. I tried 3 times to send it to your spoof@paypal.com and it keeps sending back saying the email failed.

Try forwarding it to yourself and list the Spoof report address as a second recipient. That worked for me. I think the hackers have hacked the functionality of some email servers, but on mine, having the spoof address as a second recipient made it go thru; I think.

This worked for me:  Delete the phishing email and then going to your delete folder and forward from there.

Re: Can’t forward spam email to spoof@paypal.com

I received a fraudulent/phishing email claiming that there is a problem with my paypal account and I cannot use it anymore. I did not click anything. I did try to forward it to spoof@paypal.com and I get an error message every time. I even tried some of the tricks others used and nothing is working. The error says that the message is rejected. The code is CXSNDR which means "There was a problem with the sender's domain. Your email failed authentication checks against your sending domain's SPF, DomainKeys, or DKIM policy."

You will not allow us to send as an attachment either so what other option do I have to report this fraudulent email?

Thank you.
