Increasing vulgar e mails I can't stop them

Answered

I get vulgar e mails and when I go to unsubscribe ( even though I never subscribed to them in the first place, I have to submit me email address. I get a message that this was successful, however they still keep coming and are increasing.  I feel like stopping my use of Internet altogether, I want this to stop.i am an elderly lady, and do not want dating information, **bleep** enhancement, or to have any kind of sexual conversations or pictures. Please help!

Sadly with this type of spam the only real way is to change the email address as what you may effectively done is confirm you address to be sold on to other dodgy folk.

 

May be best to setup up a new email address with say google or hotmail and remove/ignore the current email address. Assume youve used your primary address and not setup a secondary hence the above suggestion. 


Cheers,
Dave

Just mark them as JUNK, so they are filtered away from your inbox.

 

Check your junk once a week,  #1 is to be sure no one you want accidentally placed there, then #2 to delete those there

 

 

 

Australian Incorporated Companies  mostly honor the unsubscribe.

 

Many overseas senders do not,  many appear use your UNSUBSCRIBE  to add your details to their databases, or sell them to others.
