Is any one getting burial insurance e-mails in their inbox from Chile? I've blocked all that have arrived but they still keep coming.

I haven't had that one in my inbox, Ken, but I do get other strange things.

The last date for submitting certain tax returns was a week ago here and my first 'Tax Refund' e-mail has arrived today!? I've asked HMRC to send any claim forms to me by post.

I have been getting emails saying I have a tax refund. HMRC do not send emails re tax refunds.

I have been trying to reset my rules (filters) in our main machine and am unable to do so since BT changed but didn't improve their e-mail facility. They are working on it and I'm hoping it will be fixed in a week.

Fortunately the facility works on my wife's laptop so I'll be making a list of all the trash that arrives in my inbox for setting the rules that put it where it belongs - in Trash.

I think I've been hacked on this computer so I've changed my user name. From now on Ken Dunn 25 = Ken Dunn - unless Ken Dunn starts working again.

It looks like Ken Dunn has started working again so I'll revert to it unless the problem happens again.

I've decided it wasn't a hacker but a temporary glitch in the system.

The main survey company which throws me out is Panelbase and they keep sending me a survey which asks if I have certain Sky facilities. They ask me this every 2 or 3 weeks and I suspect they are trying to sell Sky rather than wanting me to give a paid for opinion on it.

I have another one for Rehab centres but the first 3 items in the body of the e-mail are for selling mobile phones! Hmmph.

I've set my BT rules (filters) to dump this stuff in the trash but it isn't working (yet).

One of the filters/rules seems to be working.

I've just done 2 paid for surveys and neither of them threw me out!
