ascertain IP address

Post by Dave Davison »

I just got what I believe to be a suspect email claiming to be from Virgin Media [see screen shot] e.g instead of my name being in the "To" field it states "Undisclosed recipient". How does one go about exposing the IP address of the sender please? Then I will contact my ISP about it for clarification Thanks Dave.

This is almost certainly a scam. Do not click on any link in the message!

There is little point in determining the IP address of the sender; the sender's email address shown in your screenshot is more informative - it is probably not a real Virgin email address.
Regards,
Hans

Many thanks Hans, just as I expected as my ISP has been receiving monthly payments by direct debit for may years without any problem... Regards Dave.
