Mellow Monk spoofed by a spammer: Update

In a previous posting I wrote that a spammer was spoofing the domain—using made-up email addresses in the reply-to field so that his emails appear to come from us. But the business in question is using our domain without our permission and is in no way affiliated with Mellow Monk.

If you received one of those emails, please know that we were not the senders. We sell only tea, and we don't send out spam.

I apologize for the inconvenience, but at this point there's nothing we can do: Unfortunately, this can happen to just about anyone, and there seems to be no way to stop it. The laws just haven't caught up with the technology.
