Distrubing news has been released that the website, EthicalEmail, may actually sell your email address to the spammers they say they will protect you from.




EthicalEmail is a website that if you sign up to their registry, will supposedly reduce the amount of spam that you receive to the email addresses that you entered. NBC News today has reported that Senator Charles Schumer says that people should not register their emails at this site, as they may actually be selling your information back to the spammers.



Please beware of posting to sites like this as you do not know what they will be doing with your information.
