Why Am I Getting Spammed
and How to Prevent It?
Spam is an ongoing issue that costs businesses and individuals billions of dollars in lost time and resources. Spam includes unsolicited commercial email (UCE) and other unwanted bulk email. While GTel can never prevent ALL junk email from hitting your inbox, there are steps we can take to help greatly reduce receiving it!
The following is a list of some of the ways spammers can get email addresses without you giving it to them directly:
• Be careful who you give your email address to. This includes marketing/promotional offers and retail stores.
• Create and use disposable email addresses to sign up for websites or services that you do not absolutely trust.
• Be sure not to open spam when you do receive it.
• Make sure your computer and computers on your network are virus and malware free.
• Do not list your email address on your website or anywhere the public can access it.
How many email accounts does the average American have?
Three. A main email account, a business/school/work account, and a backup (typically the first email account they opened).
The Nuclear Option
After changing your Spam Filters and unsubscribing from mailing lists, if your inbox is still flooded on a daily basis with offers, sales, or fraudulent messages… one option remains: create a new account. Google’s G-mail now has more than one billion active monthly users. Yahoo reports 800 million active users. Why? Because their services are free, easy to use, and offer users a “fresh start.” One drawback is ANY emails and/or contacts stored on your gtel.net account will NOT follow you to another provider. But you can save/print important emails on your computer and export contacts to your new account.
