I'm trying to find out if this is a scammer by his email address. (georg1@facebook.com.eml). It worries me that it is not who they say they are. Can you tell me how to check out and what EML means?

    Well. there is no such address as { georg1@facebook.com.eml }, so it's hard to say much. I would normally expect to see .EML as a file extension after an e-mail client has saved an e-mail item to a PC's disk. Outlook and Thunderbird both create the extension, and I expect at least some others also will.

    Beyond that, there's no way we can tell if a basic e-mail address is related to a scam or not. Most scam addresses are faked anyway, and they're often partly randomized or obfuscated. E-mail addresses are generally meaningless when related to scams.

    When in doubt, delete it. If it is important they will try to contact you again.

    EML is a file extension that is appended to emails that are individually saved from an email client. Is that actually the address that sent you the email, or is it an attachment?
