Cowart's Common Room
German Spam

Is it just me, or is everyone else getting spam from Germany too? I do have a spam filter and it all goes neatly into the right place, but I check through it as sometimes it can be a bit over zealous. This last week, the Germans have arrived (sorry, Ivy) so my offers for Viagra, blue pills, cheap meds and Russian wives are now appearing in German...........

Re:
Ivy's Avatar Criky are you using yahoo? My son has changed his dob on his personal dates sheet to 1903 now he doesn't get any spams anymore as he is too old for anything -they think. After I changed my e-mail address I didn't get any spams any more before that it was the AM or lawyers from some African countries trying to tell me I inherited money from an uncle... I am blond,and white how should I have a Kenyan uncle?

Re:
Exmoorjane's Avatar You know, I barely get any spam. Feel quite left out. Maybe two or three a week, if that. Though the emails I DO want go racing off into my spam folder....

Re:
Salle de Bain's Avatar I'm with Yahoo.

I get nothing but obscene spam....nothing in German though!
It has become a daily routine to delete probably 10-12 of those revolting, mis-spelled invasions of privacy.

Re:
Ivy's Avatar Yes and since I changed my address I never got a single one. Hotmail is very good even the spam file is empty. And the new yahoo address is used only by very close friends and family. But than who would like to send a 105 year old lady a mail on Viagra watch replicas and Russian girls?

Re:
Elizabethd's Avatar Yahoo also, and the same boring old fake Chanel watches etc, not to mention letters 'from the desk of Mr Ahib Ambobolo', telling me to claim my million. Very literate desk.

Re:
Mountainear's Avatar I'm with Yahoo and get loads of spam most of which is filtered into the 'spam' box. A lot of it seems to be in Russian - though whether this is real or cod-Russian I can't tell.

Re:
Lily's Avatar I did get a lot of fake watch and shoe spam, but redirected them to each other and they seem to have given up on me. I do get some gambling spam but not sure of the language- not in french or german - just recognise the word "casino". Oh and also the nigerian ones which are quite funny- just how unlucky can one individual be?

Re:
