    Lightbulb Create a short and safe url link to replace your email address with Scrim

    I found this site while stumbling. You can use it to create a url to replace your email address on websites and social network sites. That way your real email address is not revealed.





    scr.im Share your email in a safe way. Get less spam.

    Thats one useful find. Let me check it out. Thanks roraniel

    I only hope that they don't misuse the mail id we submit for spamming. While this one doesn't ask for it, generally speaking, do remember, never give out your passwords on 3rd party sites, should any ask for them ...

    Also, NEVER respond to any email that is asking you to update any kink of account information or re-activate any kink of account by using an included link.

    These are all scams used to steal your account information. They are all designed to appear to be from a legitimate company like PayPal, your bank, eBay, email services, ect.

    Another big one is an email from eBay saying you have not paid for an item you purchased and asking you to use a link to sign in and contest the charges.

    Basically consider ANY link in an email that goes to a sign in screen to be a scam.

    It seems a good idea,
    maybe a little bit complex.
    I generally do not share my main e-mail address and I use a powerful and portable antispam.
    I recognize scam, phishing and spam well enough.
    Thank you roraniel
