I’m not quite sure what’s happened in the last week but it seems that every spammer in the world has doubled their efforts. It was so bad in fact that on Tuesday morning I subscribed to Spamnet (yes I’m sure there are a plethora of free alternatives but I like this one and it’s only $3.99 a month).
Doing a little math:
36 Tuesday morning
82 Tuesday-Friday (post spamnet)
165 total spam emails in 5 days
While I realize some of you out there may get more, that’s quite a high figure for someone who used to get 10-15 a week.
