What happens when you give your email address to everyone who asks for it? Comment WordPress (1) Facebook () Google+ One Response Dave Strange that this is on 123-reg’s site and it doesn’t mention the following method for avoiding spam: Actually I use 123-reg’s email forwarding to avoid spam, and identify the sources of spam. Almost every time I need to give an email address to a company I make a unique email and setup email forwarding to my main ISP email inbox. That way if they release my email to third parties I have a pretty good idea who is responsible and avoid the company in future. Also I can just delete the forwarding for that particular address and end the spam. A little more effort to set up in the first place but worth it I think.
