Don't want to put any clouds anywhere near this great forum but I have a question.

Since joining this and the similar Yahoo forum I get two spam emails from continuously changing accounts with nonsense investment information.

Anyone else get the same? Anyway to stop it? :( I can't use my spam stopper as they use a different spoof account everyday...

But anyway Mach 3 is beaming with sunshine, give or take the freezing up I still get after version 17... But that is another post and almost certainly my doing...

I also get them, but not sure if this site or the yahoo forum is the reason.

I use Mozilla thunderbird as my email client these days.  If the built it spam filter doesn't catch them, I generally make a custom filter to filter this crap out.   I never filter on sender information, usually use something in the body.

Investor Alert or Invesotr Alert has been in all the recent ones.

Spammers are very crafty, resilient, and resourceful people. There are 100s of ways for a spammer to get your email address.
I dont think this forum is the reason for any spam you get. I would suggest contacting your service provider and seeing what they suggest.
Lets face it Spam is pretty much a fact of life. If I had just one pill from every penis enlargement spam I recieved, I'd be hanging more than a metre by now.
