    I received 8 fraudulent invoices to my personal email address yesterday. My email address just seems to be on a list and is being sold to everyone.

    I mark spam as spam and use unroll.me

    What other suggestions do people have – I am considering changing my email address totally starting afresh?

    Gmail is VERY good at removing SPAM.
    Before you change email I suggest you moving your email address to Gmail.

    If you are already using Gmail then give Gmail a little time it will quickly learn and you won’t get them much longer.

    Then looks like someone has worked there way around the Gmail spam filter… but it shouldn’t be too long until it adapts.
    Please do update me on this.

    I hope it stops soon… SPAM is intolerable!

    I think basically someone is selling a list with my email address on.

    So how do I counteract that?

    On gmail I outright ban any messages that are not from known domains and then once a week when im watching tv I sift through the spam.
