Thumbs down I bet you are listed here ...Do not Reply to unsubscribe!

Many of you are aware of the "Bot mining" of Email address listings to Spammers and Scammers to send on their wares (I thought this was on The Hidden web)
I accidentally found this URL while testing out my AOL email name out on Google
Frankly (and you too) am horrified that this is being posted publicly
DO NOT unsubscribe to this as doubtless it will continue or renew despite the Precautions you have may have taken to keep it quiet
http://www.download-email-list.com/
And taking it a step further on Google that URL (as a raw search item) opened this Can of Worms including some YouTube items

As I have had my email address for a lot of years I would be very surprised if I am not listed on dozens if not hundreds of email lists and we all know that everyone and their mother in law sells email addresses and lists.

But as Madeline says how would you know being that you have to buy those lists which I wasn't going to do.

Just revisited the page When I scrolled down off the Countries sections

There is another "locked out" section beneath with all the Usual suspects classified separately even the likes of Gmail

Example:

Quote:
EMAIL DATABASE FACEBOOK

2018 Updated, Fresh, Verified, New Records, Valid 100%
Price they ask is $100 per section about 70 pounds UK (@ this posting time)

Ditto, but at least I'm not swamped with spam. On the whole I don't get much. I'm certainly not going to buy any lists either!
