Ron – something that I have noticed in the recent years that when you get
the same one over and over, I would go to their website and “UNSUBSCRIBE”.
I would get the generic “sorry to see you go” . . . then a few days later,
I was bombarded out of nowhere with similar spams.
so I am thinking that when you respond one, your email goes on an “active mail”
list and is passed, traded or sold to other spam companies.
also – I read that if you even run your mouse cursor over it, it will also recognize that
you are an active mail address.
so with that knowledge, I am very careful not to disturb the sleeping dog and just delete
it right away without touching it with the cursor.
you might want to try that and see if it slows down any.
[and I had fried spam & onions, fried eggs n grits just last night ~ I love spam too !!!]
