No not the kind you eat....but the junk email we get everyday!
"E-mail spam, also known as junk e-mail, is a subset of spam that involves nearly identical messages sent to numerous recipients by e-mail. A common synonym for spam is unsolicited bulk e-mail."

Lets see.... this week my Paypal account is under question, I have been left three million six hundred thousand  british pounds by a british heir (so tempting to reply!), I received an order of 50 pieces of my  jewelry to be sent to Czech.and for MOI to pay the postage, but they would reimburse me. Ooohh, the best for last...herbal supplements that would impress my partner!  I delete and I delete, it drives me crazy, especially the ones that prey on small business owners. Some of the spam are easily checked on if they are legit. I send the Paypal ones to and some of the others you can google the sender and there is usually a rap sheet on everyone else they tried to steal from. What do I have to do to stop receiving these? I am not flattered...although the man from New Zealand who would like to purchase from me sounds soooo nice!


  1. Oh, Judy, it is a bit more than annoying isn't it? I usually, just grit my teeth and hit the 'spam' on my email. But there is always a new one. My usual question is does anyone ever really fall for these scams? I suppose so or they wouldn't be so persistent. Anyhoo, my ultimate response is to just get back to the studio and be absorbed in my own little world.

  2. So sorry you are being plagued by is such a pain!!! This happened to me in the past with my email..somehow or other I changed a setting to fix that problem!

  3. I had to close the Guest Book on my website because of this. I was sad about that because people used to write very nice things there that I enjoyed reading. I was clearing it of unpleasant spam several times a day. I don't know what you can do. I am sorry you need to waste your time on this.

  4. i have yahoo, and it gives you the option of marking things as Spam. This blocks their addresses from sending you anything permanently. After doing this a day or so, you start seeing significantly less spam. I don't even think it sends the messages to your spam folder, just outright rejects them.
