    Hello, here is my problem I was having a couple of problems with my
    Paradise Account, I had written to Paradise via email to sort it out,
    I got a reply within a few days, But Im pretty sure the reply I got
    was not from a Paradise worker, even though it had the "Help,
    Accounts, Postmaster" email address, so somehow some Hacker/spammer is
    intercepting my messages to paradise.

    When I look at the message scource of the email it had the web address
    "rightnowtech.com" which of course is not paradise, I ring up Paradise
    call centre and they tell me just delete it, and they dont seem to
    concern about it, my virus checker doesnt pick up a virus, all other
    emails seem to be getting thru.

    The spammer always writes back as if hes a Paradise worker, telling me
    he needs more information. Since Paradise is not much help, any
    suggestions???

    Don't think its anything...

    I think Paradise customer help use a "Right now" customer service service...

    go here
    http://paradise.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/paradise.cfg/php/enduser/entry.php

    and u will see one of their logos under the search button.
