How can I forward a phishing attempt claiming to come from firefox?

Posted

Specifically does mozilla HAVE an email address to forward spam to? Abuse at or spoof at or something similar? I found a web form but with limitations on text area I cannot possibly include the entire, header included bit of junk.

Further, I run all my junk mail through spamcop and it came up with an abuse department of... c.exacttarget.com SO seriously doubting it came from Firefox OR mozilla.

However, my computer is still running a dated OS. (mountain lion.) So my version of all browsers is dated. I can't use safari anymore. Firefox is aweful, crashes daily! I send in reports and use my junk email to do it just in case someone actually answers. No one ever has... (not a great selling point for firefox. When I finally do upgrade I'll go back to safari.) And that's the one that got the so called "offer" from Firefox for something or other. That's why I'm here. Is this junk or not? And if this IS a phishing scam claiming to have come from firefox, I would hope they would want to know about it.

Please advise. I will hang onto this bit of spam until someone has a chance to post back. Thanks.

Ok, so the answer is no. All I needed. Thanks.

I'm not sifting through their self help forum btw. If they don't care that someone is using them as a phishing scam, well, good to know their support is so lacking. I won't ever trust them with much.

Did you check the actual email address not the front half of the email Sender address will actually save something mozilla.ru. They can fake the first half but the second half will not be related to Mozilla or firefox. And it basically means that it didn't originate from mozilla.

Guys, I am NOT going to sift through spam and become a programmer to know what to fish for.... I use spamcop.net and what ever it comes up with it will send reports automatically. But... since this one is a phishing scam, claiming to be some offer from firefox, I would think Mozilla would want to know about it even if it did not come from them. Especially since it did NOT come from them. Paypal has an email addy to forward to. Spoof at... So does apple. I only want to forward a copy, with full headers to an abuse email at firefox.....

Does mozilla have a spoof at or some similar e-mail address to forward this sort of thing to? This is really a simple question. And a web FORM does NO GOOD AT ALL since they almost always have a character limit and pasting in a full page of spam isn't possible. All I need to know is do they have an email address.

(there I said it twice now, maybe that will make sense?)

Hello Artmaker,

No, Mozilla does not have an email address. Mozilla has a support forum where users can post their questions and get some good advice, like you got from 'cor-el'.
