Hello,

How do I know that the email I received is not a phishing attack?
What is the e-mail address used by the Apollo team to inform customers who have registered?
How do I know?

Do you know from which country the material is being shipped from?

Best Regards,

Tristan

My Vampire 4 was shipped from Germany.
The email address that I was mailed from was shop@apollo-computer.com

Hope that helps.

Hi,
It is unclear for what card you got the mail, for accelerator or standalone version. I did send several mails recently for accelerator cards and they are from apollo-accelerators.com with my personal mail inside where you can send questions.
If its for V4SA(standalone) version then it is like Simon Whittle explained.

I purchased the Vampire 500 v2+ and also the V4 SA.  Both were diffrent e-mails but arrived just fine after I paid.

I receive email from igor majstorovic <imajstorovic@yahoo.com> about Vampire 500 V2+ card order.
So it is your official email ?

  Igor Majstorovic is MAJSTA, your V500 and V600 wizzard.
 
  imajstorovic is his official e-mail.

Hi Elrick,

There is one foolproof way you can confirm that the email is genuine.

Step 1) Open the email you received

Step 2) View the headers of the email using the "view headers" or "view source" option in your email client.

A good source of instructions for modern email clients is here - EXTERNAL LINK 
Step 3) Search the message headers/source for a line that contains the letters SPF

If you see a line that says something like SPF "pass", this means that the server that sent the email is trusted by the owner of the email address.  See example below from my Vampire order invite...

Received-SPF: pass (google.com: domain of srs0=udz2=gg=apollo-accelerators.com=no-reply@bounce.secureserver.net designates 72.167.218.88 as permitted sender)

In this above example, you can see that Gmail checked the email sender address against the server that sent the email, and confirmed that the email is trusted/legitimate.

You can use this same check on most emails you receive.  I would guess that approximately 95% of legitimate email will show an SPF "pass" and nearly 100% of dodgy email will NOT show "pass"
