Really, Where do these poor forlorns get this stuff and it is very unfortunate that they

don't have something better to do with there time.

Any way I made a mistake surfing a couple months back and am still paying for it, in the form of spam to my email address.

I want to do all I can, to prevent this but I also would like to do all I can to catch,

expose, bring to justice, theses Federal Felons who think there out on the town.

I today received an email telling me that my Capital one account has some peculiar activity and I should go to the url in body of the email sent, which appears to be a Capital One site.

This recently happened to me for a Comcast, so I googled the facts, and found

There are several reasons why these types of e-mails are coming into your In box, but the most likely reasons are:

1. Someone has "spoofed" your e-mail address, making it look like the e-mail originally came from you. This is a popular tactic that spammers use to send their spam emails. If any of the spam messages are sent to an address that doesn't exist, the email is bounced back to your account, since the spammer made it appear as though the e-mail originated from you. In these cases, there is not much you can do to completely eliminate the problem because the spammer

OK, I'd either like the Federal Government to Wake the ___ Up and Start doing there Job, or I'm going to advocate that -"Us Kind" stop paying taxes to these slip shods!


( That's OK they won't mind they spent your tax money long ago and have
been living on Counterfeit for decades
)



I mean, if the technology of emailing is advanced enough that a yahoo format can be transcribed into an outlook format via ISP's over landlines or Ethernet, than I think it is appropriate that the, PEE Eye Gees, could stop hogging up the trough long enough to make a little room for a breath for the meager to breath.

Not saying that is possible or will ever happen.

But in my fathers country the way that use to be, concerning the mail, laws that still protect us for the time being, . . a Federal Offense, where tax payers could afford to enforce.

Now, I get some others to, ya know from Africans trying to find out if I am dumb enough to think they are a Chinese millionaire, wanting to unload a fortune on me, or some Princess whose family was assassinated and she has a fortune in the bank,

I don't know how many of those I have ever received.

I think I am going to call my ISP and have my spam filter set a little higher, . .

but what I am after here is to know a little more about the coded info etc, I find in the emails

properties,

Apparently there won't be anything there, correct ?

BTW, my pointer cursor acts funny a lot of times when I point it to the page up and down slider, . .on the far right, it like is still actively attached to it, when I move the pointer away, . . like it is stuck on it and I can't shake it loose without moving it to the very top edge of the page, (browser) and clicking on a neutral point(blank), . . might this be a sign of some dismal malady ?


I'm wondering if there might be a viral agent that my AVG or FW did not prevent, . . B'cuz, when I get some of these em's, I figure my scanner already scanned them there sitting there staring at me, . . so, sometimes I read them, ????

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
