Why they know my email?
« on: November 04, 2013, 10:46:07 PM »
There are times that I receive emails that I won a million of dollars in a lottery, or I was chosen to be the manager of the said company and the like. How do scammers know exactly my email address?

Email spammers and scammers get to know your email address from the sites that you go to and have signed up with. These sites are mostly gaming and *o sites who are asking for your email address.

Email spammers pay those sites to get your email address; they then flood your inbox with invitations or whatever.
