Thank you for the help. In my scam folder, I usually only received one or two in a week. I cleaned it out yesterday, and today it has 18. I don't open any of them, I just hit delete. I have gmail for my provider and I already have the Do Not call for my phone. It only blocks less that 40 % of the calls. When it first came out, it blocked over 90%. The scammers are sharp, they send out an email with a fake name and phone number. They use the name, but send out the next batch with a different fake phone number.

If the spam is sent to the spam folder, don't worry about how much you get.

Most I see are ones I never had in mt spam folder. I do look at them, and if any look as spam or one that if I click plants something that will wipe out my computer. If I'm not sure, I delete them.
