    Scam alert: Why you should NEVER click the ‘Unsubscribe’ link in SPAM emails

    Clicking “Unsubscribe” in a fraudulent email will not result in your email address being removed from the scammer’s email list. What it WILL do is one, or both of the following:

    1. Verify for the scammer that your email address is in fact a valid and active address (which will have the unwanted side effect of making your email address even more valuable to the scammer in the future).
    2. Take you to a malicious website that will download malware onto your computer and/or trick you into falling for a scam offer of some sort.
