Since 21st May I have received 11 unsolicited emails (never more than one/day) referring to one of the above web sites. All refer to sites offering cheap tablets/medicines from the USA.
Each of these web sites gives the opportunity to unsubscribe but attempts to go along this path result in another web site appearing.
Via a Google search on the web name 2 of the sites have reference to click here.
Any ideas on how to unsubscribe?
Thanks, TonyK1942

attempting to "unsubscribe" when sent a spam email is considered unwise... the reason being that by doing so you are confirming the email adress in question as a valid one. By doing so youare opening yourself up to even more spam!

Just delete them, manually, without opening them, or set up a message rule to delete them when they arrive on your email provider's sever. It's not a good idea to 'unsubscribe' that just proves your email address is active and you will undoubtedly end up getting more and more spam emails.

What you are getting is spam...unfortunatly, just like with junk mail that comes through the letter box, you can't stop the senders from sending it.

They send emails to all and sundry, including email addresses that they are guessing at...

By "unsubscribing" you are confirming that the email address that the "unsubscribe" request is coming from is genuine, leaving yourself open to more spam.

As MAJ suggests, just delete and ignore.



(ps You shouldn't use the yellow envelope unless invited to do so. No problem on this occassion, but it's not the "done thing!)
