Have recently received a couple of email stating my account has been hijacked and demanding ransom to a Bitcon (sp? ;-) account. Considered these emails spam as it fits the description of examples found on Redit r/Scams (here):

https://www.reddit.com/r/Scams/comments/9srjen/the_blackmail_email_scam_part_2/

However, I've now received an email from a company asking if my email has been spoofed, and the header they sent suggests it has.

If this actually happened was there something I could have done to prevent it (I have enabled SpamAssassin & blocked some IP addresses)? Is this a security layer handled by the hosting service? Other? Anyone else experience this on X10?

Or, is this just spam and not to worry?

Any (helpful) comments would be appreciated.
