Just by checking the senders mail address by hovering the pointer on it you can see if it's garbage or not and 100% of mine are.
As for using a card reader on my bank account I have to log in before even getting to use it so have all the faff to get through anyway.

Just as a matter of interest, which mobile network are you on? Would a different network save you getting arm strain?
The years have been good to me, it was the weekends that did the damage.

Personally if arm strain makes things as difficult as possible for these low life's to hack my accounts then I'm all for it!

It's just not a good area for mobiles, Malc. Many networks just don't work here. Some years ago Orange & Vodaphone wanted to put a mast up but the local council vetoed it.
It's one of the reasons I won't spend money on a smart phone - no point :no:

I have zero mobile signal where I live. Fortunately my Samsung A40 with a BT Sim makes and receives calls via the wi-fi router. I have found it convenient. We are currently not on the Paypal scammers list, but one of my wifeís disposable emails attracts all sorts of junk mail. Finding that unsubscribing just encourages them, she hit on unsubscribing by entering the spam senderís address. This seems to calm them down for a while but I do not know why.

Unfortunately a lot of the spammers also spam the email address. I had one proporting to come from the University of Edinburgh. I know Iím knocking on a bit but I donít need what they were offering at a discount.
