If you’ve received a strange, fraudulent, or spammy e-mail from patrickdyl.com I apologize. The domain is currently being “joe-jobbed” by a spammer. Unfortunately due to the nature of the attack there is no way to prevent it.
A joe job is a spamming technique that sends out unsolicited e-mails using spoofed sender data. Early joe jobs aimed at tarnishing the reputation of the apparent sender or inducing the recipients to take action against him (see also e-mail spoofing), but they are now typically used by commercial spammers to conceal the true origin of their messages.
