And how to prevent it from happening to you.
Spam. What is it?
What Is Spam? We have all gotten it at least once if not more. Spam is when people send you what seems like real awards, notifications, or links in hopes of obtaining your personal information. There are many ways to avoid spam and the people who send it. First off, Don't reply back to their emails. If you do this the figure out its an active account. Next, Have a decent Firewall. If you have this (if the computer you have doesn't have one already.) it will help against spam. Third and final have a one-use email. If you use an email just for that site that doesn't have any personal info, they will have a harder time getting into your other accounts.
