ADMIN can look up the I.P. address, but most are sent through a proxy...could be Chinese phishing through a U.S. proxy I.P. address.

I deal with that on another site I moderate. Really only way I have found to avoid it is to check IP address on black lists and first postings need to approved. No PMs until poster is permitted to post.

I literally just got mine as I'm reading this. I reported it and deleted it. Thank you Mods for all you do. I've been here over 3 years and this is the first thing of this kind I've ever gotten.

It is everywhere.
My wife works in IT but on the user side. Her co-workers have been battling an intrusion for the past 5 days. Yep, some dumb ass clicked on a bad link.
