If the spam isnt full of Bitcoin stuff, then these do occasionally appear.
My wife says I must have at one time or another dabbled in viewing porn sites!!!!?

Leon, 'Cookies' work in some rather odd ways and you and flash may have viewed something as simple as a potential investment opportunity.
Greg.

I haven't received anything like that in my emails.

But I must be devilishly attractive in my old age, as I keep getting Friends Requests on Facebook from scores of attractive women from all around the world, including Russia.

Or maybe they're interested in my telescopes?

Cheers,
Renato

I am CONSTANTLY getting text messages about solar panel offers. Today I have 2 missed calls, 2 messages, and even a bloody voicemail asking me to get back to them about an "enquiry" I've apparently made. Sometimes they'll call and if dont answer, they'll immediately call again. Shove thy solar panels where the sun dont shine you purulent parasites. Death,
taxes, and telemarketers

I refused to load a QR application on to my mobile phone.
Instead I started giving out my name and phone number on lists at restaurants and food courts -
guess what?
I started getting junk mail SMS messages sent to my mobile phone!
I can only assume that the operators of food courts and restaurants
were selling my name and info off to advertisers and spammers.
They will do anything to make an extra 50 cents.
The whole thing is so corrupt that now I still don't have a QR code app and
I don't leave my name at all -
I don't trust them with my personal information.

Completely understand Al. Its a difficult path out there working out who you can and cant trust. Whod have thought people would screw each over for money...?

As long as there's an extra penny to be drained they'll do it.
