Hi all,
It appears that someone or a group are sending spam with my name attached to an email that isn’t mine. The actual emails the spam messages are sent from are many different emails.

The messages are sufficiently vague that you might be tricked.

The messages include things like this:

---------- Forwarded message ---------
From: Jutta Treviranus <niveanair at terra.com.br<mailto:niveanair at terra.com.br>>
Date: Sun, Jul 19, 2020 at 12:12 PM
Subject: Fwd: from Jutta Treviranus

well I think we both should have seen it coming (bogus and dangerous link here)

Before you follow any links sent by me, check that the email is actually sent from my email. All of my emails begin with some variant of my name: jtreviranus or jutta.trevira

Also if anyone knows of a way to address this please tell me.

thanks and apologies.
