Stop Email spoofing


Spoofing or Forging of our email addresses

Some spammers launch email campaigns that look like messages sent by BestSearchers.com

We, as well as other respected names, are the victims of spammers who are forging/faking/spoofing our email addresses. It is totally beyond our control, and we regret very much that we cannot stop it.

We have nothing to do with such spam, which is a misrepresentation of our good name.
We do not send, and have never sent, spam email of any sort.
In fact, we strongly oppose the act of "spamming" or sending unsolicited commercial email (UCE).

If you have received such spam email we are sorry, but emphasize that it was nothing to do with us and was beyond our control.


What is Email Spoofing? (Faking or Forging)

"Email Spoofing" is the latest nasty trend in spam, it is the practice used by many spammers to falsify the header information in their email advertisements. By changing the header information someone can make the email appear to come from whoever they choose.

Hackers are now routinely stealing the email or Web site identities of many people on the Web, and using them to send millions of pieces of junk advertising or offending emails.

The average person on the Internet doesn't yet understand what's happening here, and many legitimate companies are obviously being victimized.

For more information, see our Anti Email Spoofing and Anti-Spam pages.

How You Can Help Us - Handling Spam Spoofers

If you ever receive such spam-mails that look like messages sent by BestSearchers.com, please do this:

1. Report the "spoofed BestSearchers.com email" to us at

  • Send the original spoofed email as an attachment. (See the "send" menu of your email program)
    Sending the email as an attachment is the best way to preserve the "header information," which makes it easier for us to trace the true origin of the forgery.

  • OR
    If you cannot send the forged email as an attachment, forward the email, and include as much of the header information as you are able to maintain.

    The headers we need are well labeled and look something like this:
     X-Sender: someone@domain.com
     X-Sender-IP: [10.1.2.3]
     X-Date: Tue, 18 Apr 2003 20:12:06 +0000 (UTC)
     X-Recipient: you@domain.com
     X-OUID: 1

    To find the header information, configure your email program to show All Headers (this varies from program to program).
    For Internet Explorer you can do this:
     - right-click the unopened email in your inbox,
     - and then click "Options" to open the window that includes "Internet Headers."

    To track the actual sender of a particular message, we need this "extended headers" information.
    If you simply forward an email message to someone, these headers will be lost, so whenever you are reporting spam be sure to cut-and-paste the message header from the spam message and send it in the body copy of your email message.


  • Please understand that we will not be able to respond to all of the email reports we receive.

2. Report spam to your ISP

  • Report spoofed emails to your ISP and notify them that someone has stolen our email identify.
    Be sure to cut-and-paste the message header from the spam message and send it in the body copy of your email message, as described above (1).


3. Never respond to requests for personal information that may be contained in the forged email.


4. Please don't do anything which might result in bestsearchers.com being wrongly blacklisted as a spammer.




Thank you for your help and understanding,
