Once more, everyday people are being simply emailed or spammed by persons unknown. The advent of the computer system has permitted dishonest people the opportunity to defraud money, intimidating individuals into handing over money and just spamming from virtually every part of the globe. The latest email menace comes after laying dormant for a many years or so and has now resurfaced. The email identifies that your life is in danger of ending if you do not pay off the person sending the email a large sum of money. It goes on to describe that someone you know has found this person to end your life. (Ask yourself if you are genuinely that fascinating?).

This email was a hot home computer topic about a year ago, has now resurfaced, and is frightening unenlightened home computer users to death, which doesn’t perform well for the spammer, as they need living recipients. They fear for their lives and some have spent the money just to stay alive. The home computer is a wonderful communication system for families to stay in touch as well as for business needs. The issue that many people like this can spam your email box and get away with it, as it causes alarm. Even with a spam blocker turned on, these people can spoof the spam blockers into approving the emails as good emails.

Good spam blockers are not able to stop the emails and unwary people are falling for scams such as this particular one. Many people express concern for more useful spam blockers to reduce the number of fraudulent emails.

Computer hoaxes and dishonest emails will certainly never cease, individuals come up with new ways on a daily basis if not hourly to hack into email servers and find ways to break a spam blocker code in order to spam your email box. Despite the fact government agencies try to find the perpetrators, they can not keep up with evolving number of spammers and cyber-criminals. If a hacker or spammer can break through email security, then they can probably break through other security systems that are in place to protect your communication systems. For that reason, one conclusion is formed, security systems and spam blockers need to be reviewed each day to protect your email and personal security. This is not the situation with people who use wumber. wumber is a system which only permits emails from the person that you have given your email address to. If that email address falls into the wrong hands, then it’s of no use, so it doesn’t matter if a spammer gets it.

If there were a way to track spammers and spam emails, we would then have a safe and secure way to conduct personal and business online. Most spam emails come through IP addresses that are routed off other servers and can not be tracked or are not the authentic servers responsible for the emails in the first place. Many people without computer savvy backgrounds can and do change there IP addresses when posting on classified web sites and this is yet another way to defend against spam from getting to your email inbox.

For non-wumber users, the vital steps that need to be taken against spammers is not as easy to do as most people suspect it is, because of the potential to change or reroute the email through a number of servers. One way to defend yourself and your computer from spam emails is to be very cautious about who you give your email address to and do not open emails from a person you do not know. Emails that contain malwares can either corrupt your personal computer or scan your address book for all your contact information and spam your friends and associates. If you observe these two necessary steps, you can help protect yourself and associates from receiving terrifying emails such as the one that seems to be plaguing everyone around the world. One other thing to keep in mind is that it is a rip-off and not a real email.

If you are genuinely concerned about spam and its risks and hazards, then join wumber. It is free to join and free for everyone to use.

    The general theme here seems to be disbelief that people could fall for such a scheme. If that were the case would scammers still do it? I think not.
