"iamtheoffspringofdavid"

That's the name (@yahoo) in a series of emails I've received, from a friend whose email address has been spoofed. My system identified it as suspicious and my friend confirms that she hasn't changed her email info, so I haven't opened the mails and have no idea what the spoofer is trying to peddle.

Just curious to know if anyone else has gotten mail from that source...

1. I would assume Christianity, with that name

The only google hit, apart from this thread, is something about a lost parrot from 2009: http://www.itslonggone.com/rpt_abuse.php?id=619

2. The only way to deal with those spambot emails is to..

.. empty your address book/contents.

Then change you password.
