Hi, I've had a sudden deluge of scam/phishing emails in the last 2 days, literally about 50 mostly relating to renewing security software which I haven't ever used, blacklisting has caused me to reach the max number so has anyone else had the same issues or can anyone advise how to stop them?
We are also suffering exactly the same thing on one of our Virgin accounts, within the last 3-4 days, 10-15 emails a day mainly relating to subscriptions out of date, or software no longer working. It is disappointing that the Virgin email system does not recognise these and sideline them.
The Virgin spam filter has worked fine for me for quite a number of years but over the last couple of days I'm getting all sorts of rubbish coming through. As per OP they mainly relate to security issues.
Any idea mods? Are the techie people aware of the issue?
Me too! Filters have worked but just started to get the auto renewals from Norton and McAfee. VM and techie folk are aware but the only advice I have seen to date is to delete spam e-mails. If there is better advice, please advise.
Update as promised - the spam seems to have slowed down and I'm not getting anywhere near as much, but what has been arriving has been filtered out into new folder as suggested. Nothing has got through to inbox which subsequently has stopped it getting through to my phone. Success I would suggest!
