The Dangers of Spam’s Financial Fraud

Spamming for your financials

Protecting your financial information

Financial spam continues to soar at an unsettling rate, becoming more difficult for email recipients and filters to detect. Aside from remaining conscious of the situation, another good solution would be an anti-spam program that is independent of both content and format.

These are the way for Spam Prevention:

So, your inbox is full of Spam — and you want to receive less of it in the future. There are many things you can do that will decrease the amount of spam in your inbox, including using a spam channel or a spam broker. But there are also common sense ways to prevent spam in your inbox and increase your email address’s security. Here are just a few:

  • Never reply to or click on any links in a spam message — Don’t buy any products or services advertised in spam, don’t reply to the email, don’t click any links provided, and don’t click the “Unsubscribe” link unless it includes mention of the CAN SPAM ACT. These actions only serve to confirm to spammers that you exist and you are receiving their emails. This may even increase the amount of email these spammers are sending you.
  • Read your messages as text — Turn off the ability to view pictures, HTML, movies, and formatted text for emails you don’t know. This prevents you from accidentally clicking a link or downloading adware spyware, or viruses without knowing it. Some email providers like Google and Hotmail automatically block these things from appearing in emails from senders not familiar to you. Don’t change these settings.
  • Preview your messages — If you use Outlook you can preview messages in the preview screen before actually opening them. Like reading your messages as text, this prevents you from downloading spyware, adware, and viruses without knowing it.
