Ever wonder why you get so much spam in your inbox?
Next time you give your email address out to a company, think what they might do with it. Dell, for example, sells your email address to spammers to make a buck.
Most of you already know I obsessively create a new email address for each organisation I deal with. This serves two purposes:
- You can track which companies are bad, and sell your email address to spammers
- You can immediately "unsubscribe" from the spammers, by simply deleting the email address.
I've found it to be immensely effective in fighting the never-ending battle of spam.
Thats right, Dell. I'm on to you.
I should start a blacklist of companies that sell your email address to third parties. I've already got a handful...
