junk mail or con

when you get junk mail and a link to remove your address from their list click here

is this a con just to confirm they have reached a valid address or should i just delete the email.

Just delete , clicking on it as you say can verify the account is active.

Mark as a general rule just delete the mail and you have a chance of getting off the list. A genuine mailer - eg pcadviser will have pleanty of links showing you how to unsubscribe as you will have already have accepted an invite to get mail. Anyone who you did not request mail from is sending it to you illegally and is therefore unlikely to be providing a helpful service! I tried once with an old e-mail and spams went from 5-6 a day to a peak of 187! Therein lies the answer...........

Many thanks The delete Key wins the day
