Straightforward advice about what to do when Spam arrives through your e-mail inbox.


Don't reply, and don't open attachments


Unfortunately there are many Spam emails that purport to come from a source, when in fact they do not.


Emails, especially HTML e-mails, can contain hidden links. It's always a good idea to look at the source of an e-mail before clicking a link. The source (usually available under the 'view' menu item in an email client like Outlook Express) can disclose a reasonable amount about the actual sender.

We strongly advise that you do *not* click any of the links in any Spam e-mails you receive, nor open *any* attachment or file without being very clear as to what is inside.

Replying to e-mails of this kind can also make matters a lot worse, as this confirms your e-mail address is indeed active. Above all, *do not* send any information about yourself, especially your credit card number or any personal information.

Many 'Spammers' and 'Spoofers' use programs that randomly generate e-mail addresses, in the hope that some percentage of these randomly-generated addresses will actually exist.
