14K+ Unread Emails

inboxoverloadThis is what happens when you use an email address as your “sacrificial lamb” for subscriptions and any other, “sign up to get this” call to action. You end up with a bunch of stuff you’ll never read. Google gives you a ton of storage space for your email inbox, so you don’t have to worry too much about cleaning it up, unless you let it go on for years, as I have. Going through this history does provide some perspective on where you’ve been, how far you’ve come, and the many paths you’ve explored to get where you are today!

One thing I did glean from a recent review is that Google is pretty good at identifying spam and scam emails. I found a couple of great examples of well crafted scam messages that might trick an average computer user into taking action. My original intention in this post was to share some details about that with you. Instead, I’m going to farm this out to Kim Komando and her post about scams that come around again….  http://www.komando.com/blog/250091/copycats-bring-back-the-netflix-tech-support-scam
