    Fool me once etc. They shouldn't be stupid enough to fall for it again.

    Heh, no I have a very pessimistic view of them :p. They shouldn't be stupid enough to do it again, but in all likelihood they probably would do. People really need to have it drilled into them that if it looks too good to be true, it usually is, especially on the internet.

    People have the propensity to engage in motivated reasoning, 'wishful thinking' letting your heart rule your head - letting your emotions, desires, direct your thoughts - becoming an intuitive lawyer only seeking out confirmatory evidence ... ignoring disconfirmatory evidence.

    You (they) wish something to be true so they only seek confirmatory evidence. Happens to the best of us. If you don't wish something to be true, ie. this statement then you become an intuitive scientist and you seek accuracy, you seek disconfirmatory evidence - you think ah "That spelling mistake looks a bit suspicious, hmm fuck this"

    Guys, help.

    Since Play.com fucked up everyone's email addresses (in fact the very day afterwards) I have been recieving a UPS email to my inbox about 5-6 times a day. I use Outlook and have no desire to change (mainly because I tried once and my wife just went into meltdown at having to use a different package. So we went back).

    I can't appear to block it, and the bastards keep coming through. Sometimes Avast blocks them, but most get through to my inbox or junk mail (stupidly it lets about 5 through to my inbox for every 1 to spam folder).

    Anything I can do? It's getting tedious now as I only use that email address for shopping and I can't close it as it is the main account for my broadband (i.e. it is the master address and I don't think I can change it due to that).

    Why not just mark that email as read and delete it automatically using the rules?

    I can delete it, that's not the problem, it's just that the same one is delivered over and over and over again. As I say, around 5-6 times a day. I'd rather stop this shit getting delivered, as with so many of the bastards coming in I'm bound to make an error one day and click on the wrong one, or the wife will forget all about the conversation we had tonight, wonder what we've ordered from UPS and open it up.

    I'm not talking about you doing it, I'm talking about you getting the system do to it automatically. You'll never even know it's arrived. You'll never stop it now and it doesn't matter what software you're using unless you can find some sort of way to block it mail server side.

    Seems a bit extreme worrying about it really. It's malware spam, even people who have never given out their email addresses can get it.

    You say that, but I've now gone 16 years of having numerous email addresses and never having a virus emailed to me. I've had a very small amount of spam, perhaps one email a month, but never anything malicious. I've always chosen quite random email addresses for that very reason, and careful about who I give it out to.

    This email address in question I've had for over four years, and never had one piece of spam into it. This virus keep getting emailed to me is rather annoying me as a result, and my wife, love her as much as I do, is one of the idiotic computer users many of you harp on about in techie threads.

    I've tried teaching the spam filter to recognise it, but it won't, I've set up an auto-rule to forward these messages to the spam filter, but it doesn't always capture them (even though the subject line is always the same). It's more frustrating than a massive cause for alarm, although the potential for it being opened in a week when she's forgotten the conversation is there.

    Actually I did receive a virus via email once, I'll correct myself there. Just remembered I had one in my hotmail account a couple of years back. Still one in 16 years is pretty fucking good I think.

    Forget spam rules, if you're using outlook just set up a custom rule to mark the mail with that subject as read, and then delete it.

    Tools -> Rules & Alerts -> New Rule -> Check Messages When They Arrive...

    ...and from there use your common sense to set up the rest.

    Yeah, I've done that though. Set up a custom rule to move it immediately to spam. It doesn't do it though. It does about one in six, but five still get through. I don't know why, it's always the same subject line so I've just told it to stick "UPS" in spam, but it's not always picking it up.

    I've no idea whether they're doing something clever to get around that, or if Outlook just isn't playing ball. I use rules a lot so I don't have to manage my mailbox that closely, especially at work, but for some reason this just isn't working.

    I think you've screwed something up there. Possibly another rule getting in the way (like a hidden one for spam).

    I'll check them out tomorrow. I don't think I've got any conflicting, as really it should either grab them all or none, rather than just some. But then I can't see how they could get around the rule either, even with something clever, as it's just looking for text. So it is probably something odd happening, that I've created.

    On top of UPS I've just had another courier company one, again with a virus attached, but Avast caught it. So I'll have to add them as well.

    Got this. Best spam ever!

    OMG how have u been? I know we havent chatted in a while! totally my fault.. this computer im using freezes all the time. i have tired ot email you a few times with no luck.. ach! sooo sorry.. so whats been up? i am finally moving near you in a couple days.. i hope u didnt forget me? its me amdison lol.. in case u DID forget, we met on ms or cl not long ago.. so im gonna be living right near you and i dont know ANYBODY OMG SHOOT ME! i have my uncle and aunt there but thats not the same.. so can u show me around? help me find a job lol.. i get there next friday late afternoon.. im gonna nee dyour cell number also..ps - im recently single too so u can take me out and show me some real fun * wink wink * hahahha! so anyways im soo nervous about moving. its a load off my back that im gonna know someone there though. so i am happy we met online hehe :) I am hoping u dont have a girlfriend.. i am not a big fan of drama and stuff like that so just tell me if u do..SO I kinda think we should chat a little bit more before we meet. just to make sure we are not awkward and stuff. although i can talk forever about anything with anyone lol. u will notice that right away when we meet. so are u free friday to help me move some boxes and stuff? i hope so :) since i wont know anyone maybe u could also introduce me to some of you friends? are they nice? i am cool with gurls and guys lol.. guess u could say i am bisexual but whatever what girl isnt these days..so back to YOU mister... remind me what u do for work? for fun? what are your hobbies and what do you like sexually ? we have so mucht o get ot know about each other in such little time lol! as i mentioned i recently broke up with my ex. we were together for about 6 months but there was too much drama and my friends and fmaily hate dhim. he had no job and was quite disrespectful.. was also pretty lousy in bed.. i like foreplay and he always just wanted to go right to sex.. at least get me wet first ya know? selfish idiot. anyways so i feel free again now that i am single but i do kinda miss having that special someone to cuddle with ya know? so ur probably wondering how come i am moving right? well its a long story.. basicly i am broke for starters.. add to that the fact that i need to go back to school AND the fact that i ned a fresh start and there u go.. so i am gonna move and hopefully solve all 3 of those problems, the most stressfull one is my debt. i owe 8k on my visa ewwww. also i am trying to help my sister pay off her tuition fees also so shes counting on me. Speaking of which, do you have any good hookups to help me find a job? i would LOVE to be a bartender or somehting like that where I can make tips. I think i have a good look for it plus I am SUPER friendly. so here is some random stuff about me. i love star gazing, the outdoors, porn, foreplay, massages, the internet, shopping, doing my nails, sex, cooking, and watching movies. when it comes ot guys i just want someone who treats me the way i deserve to be treated. i can be such a good girlfriend and a total freak in bed. i am up for just about ANYTHING sexually.. serioulsy :) As for my current job doesnt pay that well but coming from where I lived it was my only real option. I am sure I told u about it but if i didnt i really hope u dont look down on me for it and can accept me for who i am. See I do this webcam thing where I basicly get paid to chat to people on cam and tease around a bit. I know its not the most MORAL job out there but i am desperate for money and its pretty easy money. i wanna get a real job though and thats another reason why i am moving. The job suits me cause i like tlaking to people and i am quite dirty minded so its the best of both worlds and i get paid for it hehe.. Anyways here is what i was thinking.. since my computer SUCKS and its hard for me to chat by email or instant messenger.. why dont u come chat me at my work site? i can totally get u in for free.. i have 2 free passes a month to share with whoever i like.. i havent ever given any out but i dont mind giving u one as we totally need to chat before i move. see you can login as a customer but ill give u a special link where u dont pay or get billed anything. its a special vip backdooor link... this woudl be the best palce for us to chat cause i am online all the time now trying to save as much money as possible for the move..also i will kick any other chatters out when i see u sign in. does this work for u? i understand if ur not cool with it.. i kno theres a lot of scammers out there so if u dont wanna chat there then i guess ill email u in a few weeks when i get my internet all set up in the new place. although i woudl really feel more comfortable chating wiht u before i move.if u do decide to come chat me online then u have to PROMISE me that u will not share the vip link with anyone.. for any reason.. its for YOU only baby i am trusting u.. once u sign in we can chat and u can see me on webcam also :) if u have one u can go on too.. oh la la hot.. and of ocurse u wudnt pay me for it ur my friend DUH! I am trusting u not to abuse it though cause once u sign in u can watch ohter girls naked for free too and i wudnnt want that.. YOUR EyeS BETTER ONLY BE ON ME hahahahha!! unless of course we watch them together :) So i am trusting u.. so u can trust me.. the link is at the bottom of the email. remember not to give it to anyone under any circumstances! i am online right now if u wanna come chat now.. its dead in here.. please come :( also.. u obvioulsy need a cc to sign into the site but thats just to prove u are not a minor...it says right on the vip link that its free since u are vip and u wont get billed anything.. ok im getting off here now.. im waiting for u baby. cant wait to see u and meet u and hug u and kiss u.. ciao for now.. xoxox -- localchatcamconnect . com/free (take out the spaces obviously)
