  1. Thanks FTC, for your ongoing efforts! I received two of these scam emails within one week. While local law enforcement did not take a report, stating that since I had not suffered any loss there was nothing they could do, both the FTC and the FBI took my information. There has been no further action from the scammers. Keep up the good work, you guys!

    they use anonymmailer. I was convinced of this by sending myself an empty letter from one such anonymmailer, I received exactly the same result, and it looks as if he sent me a letter from my mailbox. but it is not, I saw the logs of my mail server, the letter was sent from outside.The password that was provided has not been used by me for more than 7 years.

      This was very helpful, thank you. I noticed the email in my Sent folder and that’s what had me spooked, but I just sent an email to myself through anonymailer and it was in my Sent folder as well. Big sigh of relief.

    Just got such an email. The password they have is my password from vworker.com – but can’t Google any info on vworker being hacked sometime in the past.
