On our definition page we have pointed out the difference between Black Hat SEO and Black Hat Hacking. Similarly, what people call Search Engine Spamming is not illegal – while Email Spam is against many laws.
On this page, I'd like to show that it's not hard for scammers to send you an email that appears to come from a trusted source. If you enter one of your own email addresses in the form below and press [Send], I will send you an email that appears to originate from president* Bush' own personal pc. Of course I'll make it a short and simple message, but somebody could email you anything from seemingly anywhere.
PS: use a throw-away email address if you don't really trust me.
PPS: if the email doesn't seem to get through, you have quite an agressive spam filter. You may want to check it :-)
