What is Spamming?
Are spam emails dangerous?
Ever wonder how spammers get your phone number and email addresses? Or what spam really is? It doesn't matter where it came from it could be from an email, text, or call from unknown or known authors. Spams are an unsolicited digital form of communication that we receive from legitimate and not legitimate sources.
Spamming is very common, especially via email. It's a form of broadcasting unwanted messages in bulk, abusing different digital messaging systems and other delivery systems to spam potential victims and lure them into a phishing or fake website.
