I seem to be getting quite a bit of Spam lately, and it amuses me to see what 'they' think I might need. This morning, it appears my life might be enhanced by a Hot Russian Lady, some Viagra and several opportunities to make bets playing online poker (a card game I know nothing about) I suspect some of these folk may know something about me, as there is also a plethora of companies selling large sized-clothes for...er...large-sized ladies. There is also a person who is offering five fun girls (I assume they mean women) who will play with me. (Snakes-and-Ladders? Dominoes?)
Do other Mudcatters get these daft Spam e mails and if so, what's on offer?

A few weeks ago I was getting a screen full of offers from dubious women (probably not women at all, just robots trying to con you into clicking something nasty) but all in the Spam box. Suddenly they were gone, now just and ad or two from previous sites I've used. No idea where they all came from or why they went. Guess some server somewhere has been shut down.

I had bad problems last year - it cost me a fortune to get the PC cleaned, and then I had to lay out a tidy sum to have a decent anti-virus installed.
My laptop is badly effected, so I avoid using it on line
The best freebie, in my opinion, is the Avast, but like all freebies - you get what you don't pay for (if that makes sense).
Avast has a 'safe zone) function which allows you to work around the bugs, but it doesn't get rid of them.
I bought ESET Security, after some research and advice - seems good, but only lasts for 2 years.
Good luck
"offers from dubious women"

I don't get much spam personally, but do get some interesting things on my folk club's gmail address - beautiful russian ladies, viagra, cheap meds, cheap loans, but most of it is SEO spam with companies in India offering to make our "business' top on google ratings, so we'll do better than our "competitors" etc.

I'm touching wood here, but I've never had a problem with viruses in my laptop. I don't ever click on this Spam stuff (tempted as I am to have a look at this Hot Russian Lady who's always on offer. Perhaps she needs air-conditioning?).
I'm very jealous of my sister, as she often gets men with strong Nigerian accents ringing her up to tell her about a serious problem with her computer. She's not ex-directory, so they can get her number quite easily. She has a bit of fun playing them along before she tells them to ...er... 'go away'. We're ex-directory and on the Telephone Preference List, so we get no fun at all. I'd rather like a nice chat with a Nigerian!
I sometimes wonder though just how much information is available about me on the internet, as I recently paid off a small loan, and instantly got lots of Spam about loans and strange credit card companies I'd never heard of. It was obvious 'they' knew!

On my cross-country tour last September, I couldn't find lodging where I wanted and ended up driving another 40 miles through a thunderstorm to Austin, Minnesota. The storm stopped after I finished dinner, so I took an 11 PM tour of the town. It was then I remembered the significance of Austin - it's where Hormel meat packing makes Spam, and it's the site of a years-long labor dispute.
Turns out the Austin is a pretty little town, even in the dark — and the Spam plant is huge.
I thought you all ought to know that.
Oh, and the Hormel mansion is very pretty, and nicely lighted at night. I'm sorry I had to leave early next morning - I would have liked to have toured the Spam Museum.

My goodness Joe, we practically lived on Spam just after the War, I didn't like it all that much (especially in the form of Spam fritters in school dinners; greasy tepid slices of fatty gunk) I never knew it was produced in Austin Minnesota. Looking at your link about the museum (hahaha a Spam Museum! :) ), there's a huge tin of the stuff, and it's exactly the same colour and design; brings back memories!

I don't mind getting spam related to what I've been browsing, such as gardening, travel, wildlife, sewing etc. I do not, however, browse for hot Russian ladies.

This morning I was smiling again, as there was an advert for a cruise. 'They' obviously aren't aware that I only have to glance at a ship and I'm as sick as a dog. If ever I went on a cruise, I'd bring a very large bucket and an enormous sack of Stugeron tablets.

Oh EBarnacle, how super that you have a Russian lady of your own!

If anyone ever fancies a change from something and chips try this reversal. Make the "something" vegetable based and make the chips out of Spam. IE - Cut the Spam into chip sized strips and bakes at a high temperature until crispy outside.

It is pretty good but I would not want it too often!

You can make decent "chips" out of gram flour (chickpea flour). They were a bit too soft first time I tried it but I must have another go. Thinking of making some polenta wedges to have with an avocado dip tomorrow if I can find a couple of ripe 'n' readies. You can't trust 'em. I know I'm not supposed to but I never buy an avocado that I haven't given just a little squeeze...

Still no sign of my friend the Hot Russian Lady, or even the five lusty damsels ready to play. Perhaps they're all on holiday together in Magaluf.

Your Microsoft Operating system is about to expire, send us your $ now.

With half a billion user info being hacked at a time there are lots of people to contact. It takes a while to post the info for auction to spam distributors and criminals.

There are sites to buy info ranging from credit card numbers to dirty deeds done dirt cheap.

There are probably a few people who still do not know about the Dark Web. Still the dark web has its good points.

The baseline for depravity used to be at sea level in which the toxic barrels of evil could sink. Today it seems like the moral baseline is the same as the lunar orbit and all of us are far beneath that baseline all the time.

Luckily Mudcat is located on an obscure Hawaiian Island chain that is cloaked in fog much of the time. Mariners whisper rumors about Skill Island in which strange roars sometimes extends into the Great Google shipping channel.

I haven't googled anything about travel though Steve. Only coach trips from Norfolk to London (Not exactly exotic. My husband wants to go on the London Eye. I expect I shall be horribly sick, but I've discovered one can sit down while it goes round, so at least I can vomit while seated.)
Haha Donuel, strange roars emanating from Mudcat on its mysterious island! I like that :)

I read today about a British woman scammed by a Nigerian out of £100,000. A romantic interlude that cost her all her life savings. She travelled to meet him in Dubai of all places, but fortunately the UK Police got her to invite him to London and nabbed him. He got 4 years.
My husband says he missed out there, he should have tried that with me. Some chance, I've never had that much to my name. And I'm not quite that daft.

He wants to go up the Shard too Rusty, but doing both would be a bit expensive for one visit. The London Eye trip (with the coach company) includes a Thames river journey to Westminster from Tower Pier (last time I was horribly seasick) but I can take Stugeron tablets and brave it out. He absolutely adores London, and I'm happy to go with him.
It's reassuring that the Eye goes quite slowly - I had visions of it positively whizzing round.
As a little girl, my parents kindly paid for me to go on a miniature ferris wheel for children. I was sick immediately, and it flew round and landed on several children in the seats below. And on a bus, I was once sick down the neck of the man in front. I was sick anywhere!
