How do I stop these emails from coming into my box? Abusing your email address is only one of many techniques spammers use to throw their garbage into our mail boxes.
It’s usually for drugs or financial services that I don’t need or would never be interested in. I can’t block them as it says it is illegal to block my own email. The remedies are pretty standard, albeit less than 100% effective.
What actually happens is that somehow you get on a list and this is passed round the spammers and scammers for use as they please.
So far, it would appear that the list you are on is limited to dating sites.
Spammers hide where their emails originate, and do so very effectively. There’s nothing in email protocol that actually requires or checks that what appears on the From: line of a message actually has anything to do with the message’s true origin. Do I have to register to advertise on recycler.com? Orange County, Inland Empire and San Fernando Valley Cycle & RV Buys – Los Angeles. How do I report a bug I have encountered with the site? In what areas can I also place ads in a print publication? Do I have to provide a ZIP code when I create an ad? The spam content is totally irrespective of anything that you do.
