There seems to be no way to get off of legal lists, if that what they
call them. Sears and others like them are no problem, but these web
sites that need e-mail addresses sometimes sell them to others and
then they go from there. I get one very regular, offering me refi on
property that I no longer own. In the e-mail it thanks me for
contacting them or it was nice talking to you last night and so on.
The e-mail address is always forged and when you do a complete header
it is always from an IP that is offshore. What is interesting is
whoever has written the e-mail must have not gone to school at all or
has no grip on English as the words are always spelled wrong, and I
don't mean just wrong, but no sense at all.

The only good spammer is a dead one!! Have you hunted one down today?
