Hi DamienA01,

Can you let me know if these are in fact CNET Newsletter or spam like emails coming from our email address: ? CNET Newsletter will have our logo and content that is pointing to our site. Spam email will look like, well spam messages. Can you describe those email and let me know what they contain?

I have a few people reporting that they are receiving spam like email coming from but they are not CNET Newsletters. It maybe a case of someone spoofing our email address to make it look like it is coming from us but we are not sending those. We are still investigating those.

If the newsletter are CNET Newsletter you can unsubscribe from them at the link below the newsletter, if it's a spam message then it probably won't have an unsubscribe link.

Let me know what you are receiving. Thank you!

I keep getting a lot of "" spam emails of different kinds.
It is not from original CNET.
The fake email using as "Home Warranty", "Miracle CBD", "Splash Wine", "Congratulations" "Body Health Weight Loss" "Healthy Blood Pressure" and more as senders from "" with the unsubscribe link that I've copy and pasted it.
[ ]
Plus more of different ones using the same unsubscribe links as mentioned above.
I've deleted it as it is a phishing scam to get more info.

My hotmail is also being bombarded from the same email address.
If I block will I also be blocking legitimate emails from cnet?

Yes, the legitimate CNET newsletter I looked at comes from . So if you block that address, you block those also.

Sorry about this situation, 4evrdrmn...

Several people have reported the same experience you are going through. I have seen several examples of these types of emails that is supposedly coming from us, and can assure you that these emails are definitely not being sent from us, but rather from spammers who are spoofing our newsletter's email address.

These spam emails seem to be only hitting Hotmail, MSN and email clients.

We are working with our newsletter delivery team to figure this out. Right now we are gathering all the details.

As for stopping these spam emails from coming in, unfortunately even if you do block our email address (since these spammers are spoofing our address), most likely those spam emails will still get through to your inbox and the legit newsletters from CNET will be blocked. Sad

This is a messy situation for us and all those of you affected. We are doing our to gather all the information and report them to those who can stop this from happening.

Hang in there. Again sorry that this is happening to you and others. It really sucks.

I'm having this issue as well. The amount of spam/junk emails I'm receiving has greatly increased over the last few days and bulk of them show them having the cnet newsletter address. I also have hotmail.

Here is how to get the header info in Hotmail:

How to Copy Header Information in Hotmail
1) Open the spam email in your web browser, on the right look for the 3 horizontal dots (for “more actions&rdquoWink and click it.

2) In the drop down menu presented, look for “View Message Source” and click it.

3) A dialogue window will automatically open containing the email header.

Let me know if that works for you.

Same issue here, and more maddening that they are bypassing junkmail and going straight to the inbox no matter what I do.

I have headers for you, where can I send them?
