Phishing from Waypoint?

Getting some aggravating phishing emails that look like they come from Waypoint? These are very annoying and if you click on a link in the email or download and open any attachments you can potentially get a virus.

How to check if its really from Waypoint:
Here is a quick how to see the background of the email so you can see if it is really from us at Waypoint.

  1. Right click the message in the list for whichever mailbox it is in (Junk/Inbox) and choose Message options or Message Properties.
  2. In a small box at the bottom of the pane you should see header information that you normally cannot see. If the originating email address is from “someone@waypoint.com then there should be a corresponding ip address that goes with it. We will not give you our ip address here as we do not openly share that but below is an example of one that is “NOT” from Waypoint:
Received: from  by mx-c1.talktalk.net
From: <sales1@waypoint.com>
To: <billing@waypoint.com>
Subject: Re: Your Flight F 99-612900
Date: Tue, 3 Apr 2012 12:43:33 +0700

This one is actually from a domain known as talktalk.net but the email address they used in the from line is listed as waypoint.com.
If you see this please copy and paste the entire contents of that little box into an email for support@waypoint.com and we can track and block this.

Thanks for being a loyal Waypoint customer. We are striving to be the best independent ISP on the Olympic Peninsula.
