How can an email be masked? How could a person send an email with a false ‘From’ entry? I tried it with outlook and sent a test message using
Test Testing [firstname.lastname@example.org]
When it showed up in my inbox it read:
D Nathan Salsbury [email@example.com]; on behalf of; Test Testing [firstname.lastname@example.org]
Perhaps he has special software to do it.
The other point of confusion is that I have a full name and address to which I sent the funds through Western Union. Wouldn’t this have to be his real name to receive the money? If that’s the case why would he open himself up to being thrown in jail?
