The following is an Email I got from Hanna Mae, email@example.com. It looks like a phishing scam to me. It contains the following takedown notice. The picture is the face of Vivek Moona, who runs Moona Consulting in Amsterdam, according to LinkedIN. I don’t know if they are legit or not.
2nd UPDATE: The folks at Moona helped me to determine that the email header info shows:
Received: from consultingmag.com (devel-si.lightedge.com [188.8.131.52])
This essentially proves that moonaconsulting.com is not the true sender of the email.
UDPATE: a few weeks after posting this, I got an email from the owner of the site this email claims to be from. He says they had nothing to do with these phishing scam emails. The message I got from him is at the bottom of this post.
