    I'm just curious as to how to track down the source of a strange email I
    just received. There were no attachment s to it,....it simply said "Help".
    Here is the "Message Source".....

    Nevermind! I just got another email and it is from my friend that is
    sending it by way of her cell. I just didn't recognize the number.

    I think the start of your message is a Verizon Text Message and I think the
    message includes the cellphone number 661-747-4875

    I just pinged the IP address...66.174.3.21 and it came from somewhere in Newark NJ. I have spoken with Verizon, and they think these are spam messages, and advise not responding to them. It lets the sender know you are reading them.
