Clearly it isn't a fake site, and it doesn't look as if the addie has been spoofed. Is there anything that can be done with this ?

Either their server's been compromised, or more likely, someone's abusing their priveleges and no one's scrutinising what's going on.

AmI right ? and what's the best way to handle this ?

It seems that Patrick's PC may be compromised and is used as a spam zombie...

Having a Email can mean that you either a student or an employee with the university (Cal State Fresno)... it does not mean that the university's server is hacked to... only that a PC using that Email address (Probably via an POP3 Email Client) is infected... (the price of "free" downloads)

May not be much you can do except let Patrick know... he may not be aware that his PC is infected.

Very likely part of a zombie network. Best let him know. Its a bit of a pain getting out of it. The net should have some pages to help. Suggest he use Firefox in future too.

Firefox and Thunderbird are my only defense : 3 years and 7 months spyware, adware & malware free.

Another thing about Aus - if you are detected as part of a network, they give you a certain amount of time to sever yourself from it, or they have the rights to cut your internet connection.

The real funny part about the whole thing is that Fresno is probably one of the largest cotton producing areas in California...

I've had a couple of scam-mails from real sites before, but not too many. I have either notified them of the abuse, notified the nearest authority I could find, or simply chalked it up to those address-spoofer programs that are around.

One time, I actually got somebody who gave a damn to get back to me on it, resulting in an official investigation. Everyone else I've notified seems to have better things to do, but at least I got to say I did my part and feel really self-righteous for 30 seconds.
