Spam warning

nuisance spam

Didn't find your answer?

In the last few days I have received numerous emails (about 100) from a bunch on con artists claiming my Norton subscription is due, my computer is infected, I need to verify my Amazon account, etc.

Each comes from an email address made up of random numbers & letters, which means it evades normal email blacklists, but they all end in @kuslarinselami.com. These people are not very bright, but they are a nuisance.

Anon posting - why? Breaks rules of site. Makes this spam.
What is your question?

I know the entire purpose of your account is that you're probably a long time poster who is doing a funny ha ha where you empty quote questions you don't like so that the lads and lasses of aweb will roll in the streets in a fit of uproarious laughter at what an absolute legend you are, but by god you are a boring, asinine twonk.

Because most anon delete thread after loads of helpful answers

Posting Anon is for specific confidential matters
So say the mods

This really does not qualify

If anything, posting as anonymous undermines the warning.

The domain mentioned could be a perfectly legitimate one the OP is trying to undermine by claiming they are spammers. Anonymous warnings will always look like this sort of sabotage. If you're not willing to put your name (or pseudonym) to accusations don't expect them to be taken seriously.

So, because it's an anonymous warning you will ignore it, hand your bank details to a bunch of criminals claiming to be Norton, and have your bank account emptied. I thought accountants were bright, looks like you're operating on a 10w bulb.

No, I will take the same precautions that I do with any unexpected e-mail. Do you just click on e-mail links from anyone if you have not specifically been warned about them?

Warnings about a specific domain are less than useless. The criminals will be using a different domain next week. This leaves me suspecting that specifying a domain is more about damaging that domain (by getting people to delete perfectly legitimate e-mails from them). I'm still not going to visit the associated webpage without a good reason though.

What would have been helpful would be describing the content, so that people could spot the scams even if they did use a different address in future. In the absence of that, here is video on general features to look out for.

At least you can use this windfall for the ones who demand to be paid in bitcoin for the dodgy pictures they have of you. :-P
