I usually receive around 5 SPAM emails into my Inbox each month which I try to add a filter to aradicate them as well as Blaclist the sender and record it as SPAM.
However, during November so far I have received over 30 SPAM emails.
Is it any coincident that I also signed up for Amazon Prime about a month ago?
I had a similar issue when I last signed up about a year ago although cancelled within a week. Subsequenty I received numerous SPAM emails and telephone calls about my Amazon account. I reported this to Amazon who said it was a coincident.
Thank you VIP. You may well be right although strangely none of the SPAM emails during November have been abount Amazonm Prime, mostly referring to Norton products (some of which I do have). I have raised this with Norton (as my security provider) but they too have dismissed these as coincidental. Kind regards
Yep I’m probably getting 5 or more a day from “Norton” as is my father, also virgin customer. Seems to be a common issue at the moment. Obviously not from Norton and if you look at the address being sent from, tend to be different, each or at least majority of the time
Since my post last Thursday I have received a further 18 SPAM emails, vast majority purporting to be from 'Norton' so almost up to 50 so far during November. I continue to add filters, block sender and record as SPAM but still they come in, often from the same sender or include a common word.
Surely VM email should recognise the filters I am adding but appears unreliable.
Amazon have been mashed with spam so much over the years, they may as well change their name to Hormel Foods. I detailed it on here back in 2015. It finally stopped in 2017 when they [Amazon] bought the fake domain. My guess is that it's the same outfit, but they aren't doing it they way they used to; although I could be wrong. It's not difficult to generate huge email lists with random names without some of them being real.
