Hello,

I want to warn you that OKPay is scam payment processor.

They were fine while I was making small transfers, but as soon as my
balance reached 11000 USD, they blocked it.

And it's blocked since August last year.

Stay away from OKPAY!

Nope, 69.194.161.228 is a SolarVPS set up to look like an okpay mail server. Probably your email got guessed by the usual spamming programs, did you see that it was addresses to "AOL User"?

This mail came to my mtgox email (okpay email is different).
It is possibly on mtgox leaked list.

Probably this. OKPAY deals in Bitcoins these days too.

I think the emails are from the mtgox leak - I got the email as well, and have never used OKPay and rarely any other services associated with bitcoin.

Someone must be very pissed because he goes through this kind of effort...

Has anyone received this email who was NOT on the mtgox leaked emails list?

Do not waste your time debating whether Bitcoin can work. It does work.

"Early adopters will profit" is not a sufficient condition to classify something as a pyramid or Ponzi scheme. If it was, Apple and Microsoft stock are Ponzi schemes.

There is no such thing as "market manipulation." There is only buying and selling.

I got it; my email was on the MtGox list; I've never used OKPAY.

Every time I get another scam/phishing email to this address it's just another reminder of why it's perfectly reasonable to not trust Mt.Gox with sensitive information like, say, a scan of your passport.

Got it too. Never used OKPay, but my e-mail was on the compromized gox list.

Besides, if they're trying to discredit OKPay, there should've been some more details to back up their claims.

Got it also.  I love the occasional spam from my leaked e-mail.  I never get anything as interesting from anything else.

Got it also, from support@okpay.com.

The email wording made it sound like someone who was pissed about the account being frozen, but it's very possible it was frozen for legitimate reasons. And definitely hacking their email server is not cool... so I'd reserve judgement either way in this case.

Not hacked, just impersonating. If they have a good SPF record, most filters will catch it and delete it.

Code:
> okpay.com
Server:  google-public-dns-a.google.com
Address:  8.8.8.8

Non-authoritative answer:
okpay.com       text =

        "v=spf1 a:mail.regall.net mx:mail.regall.net +all"
>

^That tells mail server to ignore email purporting to be from okpay.com, UNLESS it comes from "mail.regall.net". However, many servers ignore this option, since it was tacked on to the protocol after SMTP was initially created.

The weal thing is the email comes off as just trollish.

Sending something which looked like it came from a govt agency regarding freezing accounts owned by OKPAY and money laundering charges would have done more damage.

Lucky for OKPAY the idiot who wrote it comes off as less legit than a nigerian scammer.
