    lots of junk mail on blackberry!?!?

    Advertisement



    Hi,
    I've recently been getting lots of junk mail on my blackberry. Whats ridiculous is that i check the sent to address and its sent directly to my XXXXX@rogers.blackberry.net email address!! this is odd, because i've never given out that email address to anyone.

    It's gotten to the point of being very irritating as my phone will be getting this junk mail at 3 or 4 am sometimes. i'm sure theres really no way to block them since they all come from diferent addresses everytime. but i would like to know how and why this is happening?? how did these spammers get access to a whole directory of blackberry email addresses. what, if anything, can i do to stop this.

    any help or words of consolation would help.

    p.s. i was reading some other threads and it seems i have a similar problem althoguh that issue was not addressed. i have my work account and gmail synced to my blakcberry. i dont rememebr an incident of getting a single spam mail on my work account rpeviosuly, and gmail neither but im sure 1 or 2 might have gotten thrguh. since i've synced up my blackberry, is when i started noticing getting spam on my work account, gmail and blakcberry, and alot of times i'll get the same email, once sent to my work address, another sent to my @rogers.blackberry.net email account. very bloody wierd.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ Wow. That's strange. I never had a problem with getting spam on my bb email account. Are they coming from the same company? Maybe you can set up some kind of filter. :????:

    read the guide to avoid spam. so basically i'm guessing the only reason i'm getting spammed is because my email address before the @ sign is possibly easy for a bot to guess and this is just me being blindly spammed from some unknown sourse.

    as i mentioned, the emails are addressed directly to my @rogers.blackberry.net email which i have NEVER given out anywhere.
