    E-mail spam - Please reply


    I was surfing the internet yesterday until a site pop up asking me to chat and join them I simply closed it
    as I do with many pop ups
    but I have messages from the chating site +20 messages and keeps raising and sent at one time and second
    and some of them deleted itself (or someone did)
    and I found myself a member in it with my real e-mail address without my permission
    I keep getting messages from it all day and some of them deleted (as someone deletes it not me)
    what is this called SPAM?
    How did this register me without my permission
    How did it know my e-mail and How did my e-mail get there
    How to get rid of these messages
    Please any help brothers

    Simply closed it does not work all the time. Some pop ups are really deceiving and by closing it, is the same as answer YES.
    A better way to do it is when you see a pop up, don't answer Yes or NO or closing it. Open Task Manager and kill the browser.

    I would also suggest that you request the account at that site be closed. Afterwards close your email account, and create a new one to use instead.
