Scammers Setting Up Do Not Email Lists To Give To Spammers
from the nice-try dept
The latest trick in collecting email addresses for spammers is to set up a fake “Do Not Email” list, which collects email addresses (sometimes for a fee), puts them in a list, and sends them off to spammers. Even if they actually do have good intentions (unlikely), there’s obviously no enforcement, so any such list is clearly going to be used to send more spam. Makes you wonder who actually signs up for such lists in the first place.
