Opt-Out of all the spam!
I’ve been getting a ton of CBD expo spam for months. Spamassassin picks up most of it, and Gmail collects the rest in the Spam folder. However, today one got through so I scrolled down to the unsub link and saw it was sendgrid. I recognise them from previously reporting […]
Your DNA results are now ready!
This was a weird email to receive since I have never sent off a DNA sample to any company. Dear Friend, Your DNA results are now ready! The results of your DNA sample reveal information about your distant ancestors, including how and when they moved out of Africa and the […]
Irish Water Phishing Emails
I must have been half asleep when I clicked the link in this email, but Gmail hadn’t caught it yet even though it’s an obvious phishing attempt, so be warned if you get an email warning of “urgent maintenance” of your account. Then again, it’s probably a bad site to […]
Finbarr Galvin SMS Spam
I guarantee I will not be buying my next car from Finbarr Galvin Ltd and you probably shouldn’t either if you want your personal data to be respected. I should have known I’d be SMS spammed by Finbarr Galvin Ltd again. They’re a car dealer in the town of Bandon, […]
Extortion by Email Spam
Spammers are getting desperate. I received the following email a few days ago, which somehow got through Gmail’s spam filter: From: “germes” To: “donncha” Subject: RE: Hello Date: Sun, 24 Mar 2013 15:37:20 +0000 Hello You received this message because this is an email list for mass mailings. We analyze […]
Sneaky spammy web forms
I have a feeling the renewal form that Imagine Publishing in the UK uses had this sneaky web form last year too. Read the opt out clauses, carefully. None of the checkboxes were checked by default and as you can see they’re below the “Place Your Order” button. Sneaky. […]
Link Exchange Spammers Are Back Again!
Well, the link spammers never really went away did they? Has anyone noticed a huge increase in the number of “link exchange” emails or is it that I’ve been added to a particularly busy spammer’s list? I just noticed that a few recent ones contained the text “emailsnomore(dot)com” so I’m […]
The worst targeted spam ever!
I honestly thought that spammers had gotten smarter about making sure their emails were taken seriously. Even the most geeky and anti-marketing of developers will realise that big red and bold text, center justified, looks like something out of the last century. I hope for the sake of their business […]
Bah! Frapz spammed me!
I received a friend request from an oddly named character on Xbox Live the other day. Looked something like wwwwfrapzcouk with some odd characters thrown in here and there. They then spammed me. Grrr. Rather embarrassingly for them, their website isn’t even set up correctly: Friend removed, and complaint lodged. […]
