    Friday before last I decided i wouldn't delete my spams just to see how many I got. Well its Sunday nite a week later & I have 875. This is ridiculious. Most are from the same people over & over again. They neeed to get a life.

    Imagine how rich we all would be if we actually won all the money from the fraudulent lotteries from other countries. I don't know about you all but I would be a Multi billionaire.

    I get alot if I don't change my email address every few years.
    I just in the past 10 days or so started getting alot of spam again. I'm not a surfer. I go to the same few places only. But in the last week or so I've gone to iTunes and now I'm getting spam, so I wonder if they don't keep addresses secure?
    I'll give it another month (I keep marking them as Spam and sending them to Yahoo) but if it gets worse I'll have to change my email again. So annoying.

    Are you counting your inbox or your spam folder? If it is your spam folder your email provider is keeping those separate for you. Means they are catching them.

    Don't you just love the ones that say dear friend why haven't you responded to my letter. Like I don't know who my friends are. How stupid do they think we are?

    just be sure you don't open any of them. Some are mass generated, and only register to the sender if opened. Then they know they have hit a valid email address.

    These go to a seperate spam folder. That is how I knew how many for sure. I was just wondering how many came thru so thats whay I didn't delete for a week. Once in a while I get one of those bad ones in my inbox, but since I take computer in every so often to get checked, my computer lady keeps my firewall & stuff up to standards.

    If you were a billionaire you wouldn't need one. You are crazy. That makes my day.

    I get close to a 1000 a week in my spam folder :roll:
    I scan through them just to make sure nothing gets sent there that shouldn't.
    It seems like they come in waves... I think they get our email addys when family/friends forward without using the BCC :(
