Email-spoofing Attorney in Los Angeles

Email Spoofing. Email spoofing is serious Internet crime with a likelihood of imprisonment. Unfortunately because email spoofing is typically sophisticated Internet activity, the government is likely to arrest the innocent individual whose email address has been spoofed. Moreover, many attorneys do not have the background and/or knowledge to successfully defend a person accused of email spoofing. Someone accused of email spoofing needs the expertise of a strong Internet attorney.

What is email spoofing?

Email spoofing is the forgery of the sender's email address so that the message appears to have originated from the sender, but in reality the sender is not the source of the email. It’s similar to faking the return address on an envelope. Email spoofing is an Internet crime since it’s considered a fraud. An accusation of creating a false email header, email header forgery, or sending a spoofed email is serious since it is considered a computer crime with a likelihood of imprisonment.

Email spoofing accusations fall under Email SPAM laws. (See table below.) A spoofed email may appear to be from a lawful source, but it’s typically malicious in nature and contains defamatory or damaging information, or it may ask for personal information, passwords, credit card numbers, and other personal information, or it may offer a business proposition in which the sender offers to pay a certain amount and sends a fraudulent check for many times the agreed upon amount with the purpose of the receiver to send a refund with a lawful check in which the receiver has to eventually reimburse the bank.

At least one attorney at Wex Law has years of experience in Internet investigations and computer forensics and is highly sought after for Internet violations and in protecting your Rights against accusations of email spoofing.
