Everyday my yahoo mail box is always full of unsolicited spams from people I donot know. Although they are spams or scams I don’t delete them. Instead, I saved them in a folder with marked spams.
I have to understand and even to accept it that spammers, scammers and other hoaxers are using internet and World Wide Web to look for victims. They are everywhere. Some of them are using forum groups and other egroups and other social networks to spot for their next victims. And I should not be surprised also that anything I sent off to internet either personallyor privately posted, there is probability that still they can be accessed by other net users.
I found that some of these spammers and scammers are pretending as priests, nuns, lawyers, engineers, doctors, accountants, bank managers and other imaginable professions. Others used some remarkable people like Bill Gates, former President Clinton, President Barack Obama and even the present Pope Benedict.
Mostly of the information they are asking from their target victims are the full name, location address, age, profession, contact telephones and bank accounts. Some of them are pretending as yahoo staff customer service employees - asking you to update your account for yahoo will delete your account if you failed to do so. Some of them are offering you to become their business partners.
How to stop them?
By deleting spams at your spams section could not stop them. Based from my experience and the method I used to stop them from sending unsolicited
My reply reads “I am happy to receive your communication Mr. or Mrs. so and so, and I am interested and very willing to engage business with you. For the meantime visit this link (the link going to my blog article) it caters all the information you needed.”
And before ending my email, I would write, “Also I would request you to deposit at least 100$ to my PayPal account. Better if you can send the money today to my PayPal account so that we can start our business early.”
That method seemed very effective. It stopped them sending spams. And the reason why I don’t delete spams – I considered them as mines of great ideas to write!
