What Is The Difference Between Spam And Junk E-mail?
What is Junk Mail?
Junk Mail is typically an e-mail that is not wanted and has made its way to your email, or even your regular mailbox, as an advertisement.
Dangers of Spam and Junk Mail
Not only is spam and junk mail annoying, they can also be dangerous. Phishing scams are attempts to steal your identity by sending emails. The email requires you to click on something. Once you do, your information is being shared, including personal information that can help the scammer to steal your identity.
Ways to Limit Spam and Junk Amount
There are several ways to limit the amount of unwanted mail you get. First, do not sign up for any newsletters or any other online sign up unless they give you a privacy statement that tells you that your name and email will not be used or sold for any purposes. If you do sign up for some online information, consider using a specific email that junk and spam can be diverted to. Never , ever, ever click on a link in an email, instead, visit the website that the email claims to be coming from. Use your login to gain access into the account and address any issues or place order from within the site’s back office. Take a look at the bottom of your email as well. Typically, in the fine print of the email, there is an option to unsubscribe from any unwanted communication.
What To Do If it has GONE TOO FAR!
If you feel that you have done all you can to get rid of the spam and junk mail and the sender continues to overwork your inbox, you can forward the message to the internet service provider of the messenger as well as to the FTC at firstname.lastname@example.org .
