Bombarded with junk

junk email
One of the many hundreds of junk emails I got today.

I hate email. Not all the time, but often enough.

Today my inbox is flooded with subscription confirmations like the one above.Which makes me wonder if my email has been hacked? I’m literally getting thousands of emails in all languages from random companies asking me to confirm my subscription request.

What is up with that?

Of course I can only read the ones in English. They are addressed to all sorts of different people, none of them me, but they state the subscription request came from my email address.

It makes me nervous that I have been hacked, have a virus or someone is out peddling my email address.

Here’s another one. I’m not Glen Veum.

Has anything like this happened to you? How did you stop it? Should I create a new email address?

Do you think I’ve been hacked?

  1. That’s an issue! You’ve had the worst luck with all things related to computers/technology lately, but this is really worrisome.

  2. Either you have been hacked or being baited to open a link. If they hacked your email, they can use that to gain access to all sorts of stuff. Be diligent and watch ALL your computer access points.
