At my work address. I never give it out, yet I get 10-20 SPAM's a day.
My responses to some of the subject lines of spam I have received in the last few days. Most are bounced back to me, but its fun to make up responces.
SUBJECT: pain is killing me
Really? SPAM is killing me!
SUBJECT: is your wife suspicious??
No, a couple girlfriends are, but the wife has no clue!
SUBJECT: my girlfriend isn't in pain anymore
Good for her! Did she finally dump you?
SUBJECT: You need only 15 minutes to prepare for the night of love!
.......That will probably only last 15 seconds.
SUBJECT: You Can Be a Cop!
You can send spam messages!
SUBJECT: Want to surprise her?
Stuff it in her pooper and post pics!
SUBJECT: Wow $519,536 is waiting for you!
Really? A pair of cuffs and anal ease is waiting for you.
SUBJECT: Wonderful night of love after 15 minutes! burn terry
WTF does burning terry have to do with a night of love?
If your email address is short or generic and lacking in numbers (Such as email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, or so on), you're the victim of random attacks.
Its a work address for a large company, I cannot change it.
IT has been working on for a month or so now. Trying to get there filters to work better. They are using me as a reference because I get so much.
Is it true that responding to the "unsubscribe" option merely notifies them that your email address is valid, and results in more spam?
I hardly ever see a single spam.
Work has excellent filters. It aint hard, just buy a decent product for the mail servers!
Home, I use a Yahoo account. Awesome spam protection.
