Some Spam Tips

Author: mety Nagm Labels::

Phishers create phony emails, web sites, and pop-up windows. They pretend to be someone they're not, and lure you into revealing your passwords and personal information
Avoiding phishing scams is tough. Phishers know every trick in the book, and they're dreaming up new ones as we speak. So here are some things to keep in mind while you're online:
Don't believe every warning you read
especially pop-up warnings that appear while you're surfing the Web. Unscrupulous companies use pop-up ads to display false warnings about your computer. Ignore them.
Do NOT click any button in these pop-ups
such as a "Close" or "No" button, or the "Close" box that may appear in the upper-right corner of the pop-up. Doing this might install a virus or other malicious software on your computer. To safely close a pop-up ad, press Ctrl-W (if you're using a Windows computer) or Command-W (on a Mac computer).
You may receive an email that claims to be from a computer expert, warning you of a virus. These are usually hoaxes. Do not follow the steps described in any email unless you're sure the threat is real.
There is no Yahoo! Lottery.
Don't be fooled by people pretending to be Yahoo! and offering cash prizes. We would never send you information about a contest you never entered. If you've received a message like "Final Notification: Yahoo! Mail Winner!" or "Your Email Address Has Won $XX million," it's a scam. Don't reply to the email, don't click any links in it, and never divulge any personal information. Instead, click the "Spam" button.
Never send your personal information

(credit card numbers, passwords, etc.) in an email. Spammers can fake the message format of emails from Yahoo! and other trusted sites. Yahoo! will never ask you to send your password or credit card information by email.

Never reply to spam email

with the word "remove" or "unsubscribe" in the subject line or body of the message unless you trust the source. This is often a ploy to get you to respond to the email, which lets spammers know that your email address is active.

Never sign up with sites that promise to remove your name

from spam lists. Although some of these sites may be legitimate, most are actually address collectors. If collected, your address will receive more spam because it's known to be active.
