Safeguarding Your Email Address


Have you ever received an email from someone who claims to be stranded in London/Spain/Haiti/Germany, etc.? How about an email from a law firm in China who is trying to contract with you to collect on a "sizeable" judgment at the Radio Shack down the street from your office?

Most people would laugh at the stories of the unsuspecting victims but, I assure you, this is no laughing matter. People fall prey to these scams every single day, and sometimes they are educated, successful, and relatively sophisticated individuals who you would never think would fall for such a scheme - and yet they do.

Something as simple as registering a domain name and securing your email address can guarantee that you never become the punchline of the story at your colleague's next cocktail party.
