Internet trash. by Ken Dunn on 4 October 2013 10:04am
 
I'm starting to pester the spammers who pester me. The first one is CRewards. They say I am registered with them but you need a mobile phone and Entourage e-mail to register. I have neither. It is a Casino gambling site. Don't use them or if you do, give them a piece of my mind!?

Please add your own if you have a similar irritation.

I'll add more CRewards as I keep getting them.

That's 10 at 22/11/13.

CRewards are annoyed I'm ignoring them because they are now 'attempting to contact ...'. I hope they get so annoyed they'll stop sending!

My next one is Pharmacy. They want me to buy viagra pills and there is no way of unsubscribing from their e-mails.

Any trash that I am able to unsubscribe from will not be included here but if I unsubscribe and the e-mails keep arriving then they will be included.

We pay for the 'right' to be harassed by marketers. Cablevision, internet access, telephone, snail mail, even on-air radio. The only way for me to avoid advertising is to jam my head in the sand.

I bet after I clean the sand out of my ears, I'll find flyers stuffed in my back pockets!

That's a perfect way of describing the problem LT.

The next one is from Tom C trying to sell me a book about being an alfa male. This one has an unsubscribe thingy at the bottom but it doesn't work.

You'll have to excuse some of these descriptions. I suppose it's one of the reasons they arrive in spam or trash.

Any spam or trash that arrives in my inbox may be reported to ofcom.

I'll add more from Tom C as I get them.
That's 2 now.

I've just realised that doing this may lead me to the source or cause of these spam/trash e-mails.

I'm waiting for my next one from Anthony!
~
It has arrived and he has sent me a welcome package!
15 October 2013. And another on 25 Oct. And another on 3 Nov.

And the one after that will probably be from a bank that is threatening to stop my nonexistant account!

My Spam folder is full of spam emails. I do not open them.
 
Re: Internet trash. by Ken Dunn on 4 October 2013 7:50pm
 
Nationwide Bank plc. I didn't think this would arrive as quick as that! Remember that these bank ones are phishing by people who do not belong to the bank but are trying to get your account details.
~
At least it ended by apologising for the inconvenience!

That's 2 arrived from them but my filters are set to put anything from a 'bank' into trash.

And Lloyds Bank want me to update my online account twice within the space of an hour!

If there is one thing that puts me off ever considering online banking it is these spammers who are trying to get account details from customers of most banks.
