Not So Spam-tastic!

According to Wikipedia, spam is nothing more than junk mail sent via email which is unsolicited and many times unwanted.  Sending unsolicited email is nothing new to marketers, it’s just a new format designed to try and elicit new sales and net new business.  If you are anything like me, you pretty much hate the influx of strange emails.  I go so far as to set up email filters for the really annoying ones that pulls it out of my inbox and into my trash before I can even lay eyes on it.  I have enough to do without worrying about spending time reading email for products and “solutions” that I have no intention of buying.  Although I can spot spam a million miles away, not everyone can and that can be very dangerous to your pocketbook since some of these criminals sending such emails are cunning and very convincing!  Here are a few tips for recognizing and handling email spam and those sending them.
