I started a new offline venture about 2 months ago, set up an email address, and for just short of 2 months my email was trouble-free.
But, recently I set up a business PayPal account, and on the same day I started receiving bucket loads of spam to the same email address I used to sign up to PayPal. I didn't sign up for anything else that day or for about a week or 2 before then.
Apparently there are a lot of people out there who think I desperately need V1agra. I hope my wife has nothing to do with this!
All jokes aside though, has anybody else had the same problem after signing up for a PayPal account lately? Could it be coincidence that I started being bombarded with spam the same day I opened the new account?
Seriously, I get spam emails from new addresses every day now. Its like some black hat idiot taught a bunch of other idiots how to steal email addresses, and they're sharing the addresses between themselves.
Is there somebody I can report these guys to / a way to stop the spam? Other than having to spend every morning labeling each new email as junk...
P.S. I am using Mozilla Thunderbird as my email program - anybody know of a decent anti spam add-on?
