A lot of email users experience problem with fanbox and question it spam messages. I have been receiving fanbox and question it messages for several months now. I started to receive these messages from my friends but later on, I have been receiving fanbox messages from people I do not know.
I already decided that these fan box question it emails are actually spam messages that I need to ge
t rid of. Unfortunately, I still receive fan box and question it messages regardless that I have already marked them as spam.
What is fanbox?
Fanbox is the rebranded sms.ac but I would like to adopt gadgetpanel.com’s description of fanbox, “Fanbox is SPAM. They will phish your password and SPAM your friends.” Take note of the word phishing. How to stop spam from fanbox?
How to Stop Receiving Fanbox Spam
Mark the fanbox email you receive as spam.
This may not totally stop fanbox from sending you with spam messages but this can blacklist the sender. Once marked as spam, fanbox mails may no longer go directly to your inbox but to your spam or junk mails.
To disable fanbox spam, click the “opt out” option from the fanbox email.
Click “Never” and “Save”. I will try to do this when I receive my next fanbox spam mail and see if this will work.
Update August 18:
I have not been receiving fanbox spam mails for quite a while now until this week. A new wave of fanbox fan messages are arriving in my spam folder. The message comes from NOREPLY@fanboxnotes.com with the subject msg me on yahoo wants to be your loyal fan” and the email even has my own name on it!
Here is what the message contains:
Msg me on yahoo wants to be your loyal fan!
Automatically sign in to view msg me on yahoo’s profile and/or photo, and accept or reject her fan request.
