I'm sure the title of this post is not correct in any language, but it was the title of a bounced email I received, wherein my email address was associated with an email sender named "Unbelievable."
I feel pretty helpless because I'm sure that there isn't much I can to to stop the bot nets from using my name.
Today was a mild day. Of the 560 spam email messages I received in the last 12 hours, after I deleted the items that were in languages I couldn't read, had some variation of Viagra in the subject or sender, or that were sent by Post Master or System Administrator, that got me down to 147. It's not too bad to scan 147 messages.
It ebbs and flows. Seems like every three or four months my address is used for spam by someone.
I feel a little bad about it, but I know the subject lines or senders make it pretty clear the email is spam and the recipients probably don't give it much thought.
