Hi


Just delete this email.

Never reply to this email,the spammer will be sure that your email address is active,and you will bombarde with spam emails.

How is going to give you that amount of money free?

This is spam,don't believe this rubbish email.

be careful

that's exactly what I did.

If I replicated every spam e-mail I received, PC Advisor would have to create a new forum.

Probably based on the Monty Python sketch of Spam, Spam, Spam...:-)

  Arnie 01:44 02 Jan 2007

believe it or not I have only received one spam message in the whole of this year.

Think about this one. :o)

  €dstowe 08:49 02 Jan 2007

One spam message in a year?? Blimey!!

I came back to my business email after Christmas (only three days off) and found over 1,700 messages of junk, including several of the Happy New Year virus and a large number of Barclays.

Fortunately my spam trap had caught them all and only one click was necessary to zap the lot of them.

The only spam mail I get - and it's always been the case - is via a Tiscali e-mail account.

My Pipex and TalkTalk accounts are spam free - the former, apart from one isolated instance about four years ago - for more than 10 years.

Isn't there enough spam in the world without reproducing it here?

  jack 14:01 02 Jan 2007

What do you mean 'They're at it again.?
Again!
They never stop.
Just keep your protection up.
Never open them if you see them
Better still - keep you mail client of the start group and keep it shut down.
Check your mail via Web-Mail via you account with your ISP-
And edit out the trash there,
Then fire up your client and let in only what you want.
Then close the client down.
This is the way to stay clean
