"Strange, works with unwanted telephone calls too!"
That's a good one, Chewie. I never quite got that far but if it's a man I just pretend I know him. "Hi, this is Joe from Comcast" and I say "Joe, how can you call me after what you did to me and the kids?" Then after a long pause he might say "No, I'm calling from Comcast" and I say something like "Well at least now you've got a job. Did you ever check into that rehab?" Depends on my mood. If it's a woman I can always say enthusiastically "Sue, is this really you? Wow, I haven't talked to you since you left high school when you got knocked up. Did you ever find out who the father was?"
However, most of the time I never answer emails I don't recognize or phone calls I don't want. I was told that if you answer an email you are letting the spammer know he reached a valid email address. I was also told something about images in emails that cause trojans, but I'm not sure that's true.
