SPAM

A Downside of Digital Communication

What is it?

Unsolicited email or text messages sent to your phone or computer


What does it Look Like?

When you get random emails and/or text messages from people or websites you do not recognize trying to sell you stuff or get your attention.


How to Avoid it

  • Get spam filters for your email
  • Do not reply to the spam
  • Use a separate email address for websites that you want to participate in but think spam will be sent to you from

Examples

  • Usually has "win money" or another subject title to catch your attention
  • Comes in bulk
  • It will have a link for you to click with the message it sends you
