safegopgift.com spam

More spam text messages, this time from safegopgift.com. Yet another domain name that was registered in the last few months with no contact information and no information on the web site. Seems like another scam. In 30 years, have they not realized that with a sketchy domain name like that and no information most people wouldn’t (a) click on the safegopgift.com link or (b) donate at safegopgift.com?

Never click on “unsubscribe” links in email that is spam – e.g. unsolicited email that you did not request.

I get a ton of spam email. Some of the most notable ones are from the following where the corporations are incompetent and unable to verify an email address prior to creating an account. You should never click on any link in an email unless you are 100% sure that you know the sender and it has not been faked. 

I suspect that many of these are legit that someone were created by someone who didn’t know their own email address. They may be or may not be, there is no way to know.

Why shouldn’t you unsubscribe? Because you never know if the link you are clicking to “unsubscribe” is an actual unsubscribe link or a link to a zero-day exploit which will then compromise your device – your iPhone, Windows computer, Mac, Android device etc.

You should only hit the “spam” or “junk” button for any email that you didn’t subscribe to. Even if it could be a legit company, don’t risk it.

Here are some of the ones I get the most junk from:

oceanstatejoblot.com – continual receipts etc (email@emailoceanstatejoblot.com), webteam@virginmedia.com – continual bills from the UK, imports@email.pier1.com, harborfreight.comMidwayUSA@email.midwayusa.com, @groupon.com, dallasnews.com, TalbotsCustomerService@e.talbots.com, cargurus@mail.cargurus.com, petrescuers@email3.homeagain.com, Ashley.Sommers@eleadtrack.net, redlobsteremail@em.redlobster.com, nytimes@e.newyorktimes.com, tdelong@drivecoyledeals.com, MazdaofFortMyers@s1.eautodealerhub.com, dv8@email.dv8fashion.com, rvera@familypowersports.com, noreply+b65178c684193384@formstack.com, enroll@aiuniv.edu, rai@email4.camel.com, batonrouge@pigtailsandcrewcuts.com, blakely@drivecoyledeals.com, Chevrolet@delivery.chevrolet.com, argurus@mail.cargurus.com, JulieParker@drivecoyledeals.com, tdelong@drivecoyledeals.com

The Care2.com scam?

Care2.com is sending me emails (spam, unsolicited commercial emails) saying I’ve signed petitions that I didn’t sign. Contacting their customer support is useless, but even more disgusting is that they are fraudulently using other people’s email address to sign petitions.

One wonders how many people who sign their petitions are legitimate and how many a fraudulently done like the one below.

One sample today:

We Just Took Back the House of Representatives! It’s Time for Democrats to Step Up and Finally Impeach Trump.
Let’s all take a collective sigh of relief.

People like you and I have been waiting for this moment for two years. We fought for it, canvassed for it, phone-banked for it, and now it’s finally happened — Democrats have won back the U.S. House of Representatives, changing Congressional politics in a major way.

“What now,” you ask?
