That's 3 more offering a moneymaking scheme, a money spending scheme by gambling and one suspending a bank account I haven't got.

Jack wants to give me 5000 welcome bonus. I wonder if it is 5000 spam or trash e-mails!

'lookinf for more$' are saying I can get $10k a day just by using my cell phone. They're so adamant they've told me twice in the space of 10 minutes! As I don't have a cell phone and it is an impossible claim I'll just ignore this one.

Hi LT, I've read your 'Time for change' on the previous page and am aware of all you say. I've spoken to my provider a few times about e-mail problems and they suggested I change my password! This wouldn't help as my e-mail address would still be the same. I used to have a reserve e-mail address for safe e-mails but didn't use it as I enjoyed having no spam or trash arriving in it. My provider prevented access to it eventually (because I never used it)!

One of the things I would like is for anything I have filtered for Spam or Trash to be blocked from my machine completely so that I don't see it at all and it bounces back to the sender with a p*** off or some other comment attached to it.

I have noticed that even some of the best companies sell on e-mail addresses and phone numbers to other unscrupulous ones and I try to avoid registering with any using my e-mail address as I know this can happen.

Anyway, I'm sort of enjoying the analysis I'm doing and may change my e-mail address some day. The problem with this is that there are some people and companies I do want to hear from so going through the change procedure with all of them would be rather difficult.

One from Invitation says Jackie wants me to play casino.

CustomerAccounts@capitaloneonline.co.uk want me to update my nonexistent account. Capital One may be behind this trash themselves because their home page asks the question 'received an invite?' then asks you to set up an account. I opened it to see if there was an access code in the e-mail and there wasn't therefore this is from a spammer trying to defraud Capital One account/card holders.

That's 2 from them.
