If you receive an e-mail that at first sight appears to come from your own e-mail address, do not panic! It does not necessarily mean that your e-mail account has been hacked. Here is what you need to do if you receive such an e-mail.
Current e-mail protocols do not verify the mail sender’s identity. Put simply: anyone can create an account in their e-mail program and send e-mails from this account. You could even enter email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. The e-mail protocol does not check that the address exists or even whether you are entitled to use that e-mail address. This technique is called ‘spoofing’.
Have you received a blackmailing e-mail with your own e-mail address as sender? Do not panic, as these are usually ‘harmless’ spam messages.
Others can use your e-mail address just as easily as you do. When you receive an e-mail that appears at first sight to come from your own e-mail address, you do not need to get in a panic. It does not mean that hackers have broken into your e-mail account or have access to your mailboxes.

But why is the sender using these fake e-mail addresses? There can be various reasons for this…
Most misuse of someone’s e-mail address happens with addresses of organisations such as supermarkets, providers, etc. This usually involves ‘phishing’ e-mails, whose purpose is to forward spam or obtain financial or other information. You can read more about this type of e-mails in our previous blog on fake e-mails.
The latest wave of fake e-mails is misusing personal e-mail addresses with the aim of blackmailing you.
