Possible Scam Monger?

I have never had much of a problem with scam etc and have always fully protected my PC's via Norton Firewall and Anti Virus.

However, starting about a week ago I have been deluged with unwanted (spam) e-mails, often as many as 50 a day!

It may be a coincidence, but I have been receiving "nuisance" telephone calls from a "Financial Consultant" in New York for the past 6 months or so.

On the evening before the spam started I received another of these calls and hung up after asking him to stop pestering me.

Unfortunately I gave this person my e-mail address when he first contacted me so that he could send me some information

His details, as copied from his e-mail, are as follows:-
It was a pleasure speaking to you. If you have any questions please feel free to call me. My details are as follows:

Direct #516-937-5800 ext.225

Fax #516-937-5370

If this is just a coincidence then I apologise to Mr Zwibel - but I think not!

I am currently coping with this spam OK thanks to Mailwasher which removes the vast majority of it, but felt I should publicise my problems as a warning to others.

Be most careful who you give your e-mail address to, I wasn't and am now regretting it.
