I've been using an e-mailing forwarding service for about 7 years and have created over 1000 unique e-mails which forward to my real e-mail address.
If you are not sure what I mean basically I have created a unique e-mail address (full of random numbers and letters) for every website that requires an e-mail address, including HUKD. This means that if am ever spammed, I will know where it's come from.
I used to think that I could sue or get compensation from these companies but decided it was too much effort even though I had conclusive proof. They always denied that they had spammed me anyway.
So I have decided to make a list of companies that have spammed me, in the hope that I can at least get some satisfaction in naming and shaming these companies. I have to say that it is only a minority of companies that spam (less than 1%). I will add these and update them over time in the next post.
I should add that I ALWAYS click the necessary boxes that opt me out of any marketing e-mails etc and this is unsolicited spam that does not come from the company you registered with.
