    I have this one Yahoo e-mail for 4 years now. No problem with spam etc.

    I have used it just for sign ups to aff networks and important stuff.

    My mistake was to sign up with it to Offer Vault.
    Not only I started receiving like 10 spams a day about making money and shit like that, but today I have got some Viagra and Nigerian shit...

    Man, WTF? :prof01:

    In your mind.
    Viagra might be useful but not sure about that Nigerian S***.

    They do it to me too, maybe we're just silly to think they won't do it just because they're 'legit'.

    You are absolutely right, had the exact problem with my Yahoo address ( and I used a unique address only for Offer Vault ).

    Anyway, I deleted the address and now O.V. is not in my life anymore

    Who ever said that viagra was spam? I use that stuff all the time... I wouldn't doubt that Offer vault would spam though. They don't really push anything with their list currently so they probably figured they would sell their leads to someone.
