    yeah well you get gullibles in every breed.

    oh by the way gstuartj, that would be an mp4 player you have (supposedly) won. EDIT: just think, if all of those prizes weren't scams, we would all be rich

    well they are geting good as covering their tracks
    they have spoofed my domain and now have it on a black list
    yahoo automaticly sends and emails from techjd.ekn.net to the scambox
    they have doen the same to ekn.net
    and we hardly ever use the ekn.net accounts for anything much less spam
    but we are now blacklisted as spamers
    I bet I haven emailed anything out of that account in a year
    we called the host and all they say is it's just a spoof dont worrie about it
    they know it's not from us but they cant or wont get us removed from the blacklist
    so if ya ever get anything from ekn.net just remember it's not me
    there are only 2 of us that have access to that domain
    and we dont spam

    Um not sure about the above but I guess it must be ok.

    I get bombarded with spam from Korea rather than phising. Like many of us it offers viagra (I would punch these guys if only I could get up to do so) and mechanical and other sex aids, pornography and even loans. Like most of you I don't need to open this rubbish to know its spam.

    I don't need help. My wife is very kind and would always lend a helping hand if ever I needed one.

    Spam and phising are really taking a lot of fun off the web.

    In the last two days one of my web email accounts has been deluged with spam and, of course, mainly from Korea. There were 24 received this morning! It has never been this bad.

    In today's UK Computer Active mag there is a message from someone complaining about spam. He said he received a spam email purporting to come from him (!) advertising a Canadian pharmacy.

    I partly blame the ISPs. They know they are used by spammers and yet they don't do enough about them.

    8000 !! Good grief. I would be spitting blood. F**king wan*ers (I bet that's an oxymoron) . Hanging, drawing and three quartering is too good for some of them.
