    Thumbs up Spam-email-remover Sites!!! Its A Must!!!

    Advertisement



    Hey all. ive seen on here that a lot of people are looking for spam filters... I found two sites which do this one is. WWW.emailremove.org and the other is www.email-remover.com

    www.emailremove.org is a government email remover spam filter that the government watches so people like us dont get spammed... and www.email-remover.com is a free download that watches your email and pop3 emails so you dont get spam but its also customizable and you have to download it!

    I hope this works for you all... im trying it and right now its all working!

    Thumbs down Re: Spam-email-remover Sites!!! Its A Must!!!

    Hmmmm.... sounds like a great way to acquire valid email address - TO SPAM!

    Who says emailremove.org is a government operation? Have you done any investigation?

    I did some very quick and easy checking. A WhoIs returned the following information about emailremove.org:
    Name:Eleventh Street Ventures
    Organization:Eleventh Street Ventures
    Street1:ATTN insert domain name here
    Street2:care of Network Solutions
    Street3:
    City:Herndon
    State/Province:VA
    Postal Code:20172
    Country:US
    Phone:+1.570708878
    Phone Ext.:
    FAX:
    FAX Ext.:
    Email:y25pp7zc2xp@networksolutionsprivateregistrat ion.com
    Doesn't sound very governmental to me. So I Googled it, and guess what came up as the third hit - after the site itself and a site ranking link - a link to a spam domain blacklist site. And guess who's name is on the list - emailremove.org!

    The web page has NO other links, has no security certificates, no privacy statement. Yea, I'd say this is a PHISHING SITE!

    This is a MUST NOT!!!

    I did similar checking on www.email-remover.com and although they seem to be a legit operation. Personally I'd stick with a better known company.

    Just because a Web page says it's been around since 1998 and has graphics of awards doesn't make it legit. I'd feel a LOT BETTER if all those award graphics linked to the awards themselves - not so hard to do (and those pics are hard to read too!).

    I recognized one of those "awards" as a ZDNet award, but guess what? I couldn't find it on ZDNet. I did find it on CNet's Download.com, and it has good user reviews, but still....

    I'm not challenging the veracity of what they say, just trying to point out some easy to avoid social engineering techniques for preying on people!

    So be careful people. Not all is always as it appears.

    Re: Spam-email-remover Sites!!! Its A Must!!!

    Here's something...

    Would you trust a company who says
    "We will process your unsubscribe request within ten (10) busniess days"
    (Quoted direct from the emailremove.org webiste)

    I would rather deal with someone who at least knows how to spell 'business'!

    Probably a good idea: I can imagine noobs seeing the first post and actually trying out some of those sites -- and winding up on SPAM lists, exactly as the sites are intended.

    I agree with your suggestion, but of course it's up to the mods.

    The link to the suspect site has been edited to return to this thread. It is suspicious and possibly dangerous. And if it was an official government site the extension would be .gov instead of .org.

    Good job, bro. And thx a lot!
    btw....I don't trust ZDNet either, they say their software is CHECKED, virus free and I have downed spyware from them on at least one occasion.

    Re: Spam-email-remover Sites!!! Its A Must!!!

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I've been talking to some people I know. There is email filters out there like a compUSA and Best Buy but they don't really work.

    They said the best way to stop spam is to create a dummy email when you buy things online ect... Also if your main email recieves spam your not supposed to even open it just delete it and about a few days later you'll stop getting spam. The spam program will think your email is a dead address.

    And again sorry about it. I should have done more research before I posted. If I do a post like this again I will do all the research pros and cons what ifs. Before I post it


    Sorry again
