    its just a clever way to get you to read the email. If they send out 1000 emails with the from address spoofed to the recipient's address, most people will react the same way you did and visit the site ;)

    hheheheh :) actually first time when I used this method years ago for some more unscrupulous reasons like this one had great success . Thing is easy to do even on php scripts just to put the sender and receiver emails same :) ..... was one of most dirty ideas at the time :) . Very rarely and just after damn it loads of emails sent maybe ip's getting caught by spam filters ...

    I've been receiving emails from myself, too lol

    Google just sends them directly to the spam folder, and blocks them, warning that it was spoofed.

    thats funny. I've gotten those off and on too. I did a WTF also.

    A few years ago, I had a old bill collector calling me, we have private numbers blocked on our phone, so callers would have to enter there phone number. One time they entered in our phone number...probably thinking I would go WTF and answer it...Nope, not that stupid!

    Now we just have it reject all anon calls.
