Spamwatchers is dedicated as a reporting site to share with internet users and friends on how to avoid being spammed, and scammed.
It is not surprising therefore that from time to time, there are attempts to discredit Spamwatchers or some of its affiliated websites (see list).
The most common attacks against Spamwatchers include spams pretending to have been sent out by this site. The aim of spammers is to make the recipients believe that the spam was sent out by Spamwatchers, and who then complain to an anti-spamming organisation.
Spammers are not as clever as they think they are. They send out spams with the mistaken belief that most internet users are unintelligent. Most internet users can easily see through the email facade. Do spammers think that internet users will fall into a wrong belief that Spamwatchers would send out spams? Do spammers think that anti-spamming organisations blacklist a website ~ simply on the basis of a complaint ~ without undertaking a proper investigation?
Contrary to what spammers may be thinking, anti-spamming organisations are most careful in making a decision. Anti-spamming organisations recognise that the impact and repercussions of a wrong decision are severe ~ to the website against which a wrong decision was made and to them as well.
Only spammers send spam. If you receive spams supposedly originating from Spamwatchers, delete them. These are emails sent by spammers angry at us for helping anti-spamming organisations expose their practices.
