The spam is endless.

Credit card offers, job sites I have never visited, male enhancement pills, shoe stores (really? shoe stores?)porn, anti-virus program offers, concert sites, dental plans ....and on and on. No , no and no. I'm talking about stuff I don't visit or dabble in and it just showing up. Click unsubscribe but that just means there is someone out there and the same type of spam resurfaces under another name. I get that if you give your email address to a porn site that you will start to see the spam. This is someone selling email addresses.

So WHO (what sites) sell your email addresses?

basically any online retailer sells them.  The worst is amazon.com because they claim they don't but I made a new gmail account and used it once there and the next day I had 20 spam messages and that was the only time that email addy had been used

I contain spam to certain email addy's and they are just for that, the rest stay spam free since they never get used except amongst friends and family

The filter on my main email must be pretty good. The only spam I get is from BustedTees, but I did order from there once.

I have an alternate Yahoo address. If I have to sign up for something that I don't think I'll ever need my address for again, I use the Yahoo account. A fair amount of spam goes through that, but I don't care.
