Like many people, I have more than one e-mail address for practical reasons.
One of these secondary ones I use when I have to give a valid e mail address for identification but I am somewhat reluctant to do so.
This address was chosen to differentiate from my normal one that uses my full name, and this alternate sounds like it should be the name of my dog….
Anyway it seems this address may have ended up in the loving hands of a spammer.
This week alone, the dog has been advised it is due a tax rebate of £286 from Her Majesty’s Customs and Revenue. This is the somewhat quaint sounding governmental organisation that we in the UK pay our taxes to.
It appears also that the dog has not bought a TV licence ( yes, another uniquely British thing) and a fine is imminent unless action is taken by giving persons unknown all your personal and bank data. And finally in a thoroughly bad week for the dog, it’s been told its Internet is going to be disconnected due to misuse of the system and Netflix just wants to ‘check’ it has the correct banking details!
Finally it’s not all gloom and doom though…last week there was an offer of a Russian bride, and an earlier mail that same week offering some plastic surgery from a clinic in Romania.
All of these interruptions just end up tossed in the virtual bin….
Who said life was dull?
