No nothing to do with us. I have no idea how they do this. Can someone who knows how to deal with this tell me how to report them:

I have no idea how they do that, but I've had the same thing happen to me with my pop mail address quite a few times.

Looking at the return path, I would think it could be the lead back or the kinetichost.net which could be the ISP maybe?

Another thing is that some of it is not very good English.

Freebie_Fetish, was there a link to their anti virus software? That could be another way to find the source.

kinetichost.net was the receiving server. cpc2-bror4-5-0-cust203.brom.cable.ntl.com seems to be the sender but it could just be some poor saps computer riddled with adware/spyware and acting as a smtp gateway or something.
