WHO IS USING YOUR E-MAIL TO MAKE MONEY?

E-mail addresses like physical residential addresses are put on lists and sold to companies who want to send you junk mail (SPAM). There are also scams and pyramid schemes and computer hoaxes that may find their way into your e-mail mailbox.

Anytime you type your e-mail address on the Internet for any reason, it may end up on a list that will get sold. It is a good clue that this will happen when you sign up for a free item or enter a contest, and then a screen will appear asking you what your interests are and if you would like to receive offers based on these interests.

Later on in this lesson we will be discussing ways to discourage these types of unwanted e-mails . Just be aware that you will receive these types of e-mails . Usually there is no need for alarm as you can just delete them.

Whatever you do - do not ask to be unsubscribed from the e-mail itself, all this does is just confirms that a valid e-mail address exists. We will discuss more about this later in today's session as well.
