Everyone gets spam, however you want to be sure you NEVER reply to a
spam message or “unsubscribe” from it (using the links at the bottom).
It is also best to never click any links contained within the text and
avoid downloading any external images from within the email.
All of the above a tricks spammers use to confirm your email address
is active. Once they know it is active, the spam will most likely
increase and you will never be removed from their lists.
There is nothing you can do to prevent spam totally, but being
cautious can help keep it at a manageable level.
