Los Angeles Spoofing Attorneys
Understanding Email Spoofing Charges
Email spoofing is a type of internet crime wherein the perpetrator sends
a fraudulent email, but formats it in such a way as to make it appear
as though it originated from a legitimate source. Upon receiving the email,
the victim will open it and visit the website listed in the email. This
website is fraudulent but may appear to be a valid website in order to
obtain sensitive information from the victim. This aspect may be referred
to as website spoofing.
