Subject: Chase Online Alert: Debit Card/ATM Deduction from Account
From: Chase Online Alert <Chase@emailnotify.chase.com>
The sending address is spoofed, with most samples we reviewed coming from a variety of servers at YouHostingAccount.com such as:
- from mailout16.yourhostingaccount.com ([126.96.36.199])
- from mailout03.yourhostingaccount.com ([188.8.131.52])
- etc., etc.
