    Scams are out there people. I am not proud to say i have been scammed a number of times myself. After meeting this legit hack service team, i have experienced a change of fortune. There isn't much to say than you will not be dissapointed after contact. Their services range from facebook hacking, email hacking and loads of discrete hacking services.


    You can make the email to appear to come from any email
    ~mail from <>
    ~rcpt to <>
    ~ Hello,
    ~ your account will be banned tommorow
    ~ please save it by visiting this site
    ~ .
    ~message sent!

    it will appear to com from the administrator but the truth is it was from you

    You should lookup the MX record for the site your attempting to send mail to, A lot of domains use a separate host for their mail server. This can be done with nslookup or dig, There are also many web based tools to do DNS queries. Also you forgot to say HELO/EHLO before your mail from line.
