Being bombarded with scam emails on ntlworld email address

Suddenly I’m being bombarded with scam emails on an old ntlworld.com email address! McAfee, Norton etc......7 yesterday, 15 today! Am aware of others in my area also getting hit with these....has anything in particular happened to cause these? (Am reporting them to report@phishing.gov.uk)

Thanks for the reply. Will have a dig into xxx.ntlworld@gmail.com to see if anything there helps, though the spam has been coming through on @ntlworld.com emails!

Re: Being bombarded with scam emails on ntlworld email address

Can you tell me how to block emails ignoring anything before the @ symbol but to send to spam anything after the @ symbol

Ie @ntlworld.com

I am being bombarded as is my wife with emails from antivirus facia I have tried marking as spam but because the front part changes on every single email it has no effect so if I can block anything after the @ symbol ignoring the front i would be grateful

Thanks

Alun

Hi Natalie

Did you send me the email attached it appears to be from virgin address but the content seems suspicious ie it tells me to take a look which is very often how you are caught out.

Re: Being bombarded with scam emails on ntlworld email address

I am now for the 3rd time being bombarded by McFee Northons, bitcoin emails, I have followed advice the first time it seemed to work for a minute now I am back to being bombarded it is very annoying and will have to stop using the email address soon cause it is just getting so bombarded that I spend half my life blocking (which doesn't work) and deleteting.. is there anything other then the advice given in this string of blocking spam/ Rejecting Spam w hich clearly doesn't work
