    Warning!! Anti-Spam site a fraud!

    This is the first paragraph of the article, the link is below. I sincerely hope that no one has 'signed-up' here!

    Sham Site Is a Scam: There Is No “National Do Not E-mail Registry”

    Have you submitted your e-mail address to a “National Do Not E-mail Registry” that promises to reduce the amount of spam (unsolicited e-mail) you receive? If so, you are the victim of a scam, according to the Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s consumer protection agency.
    The Web site at “unsub.us” mimics the language, look, and navigation of the Web site for the National Do Not Call Registry, a legitimate free service of the federal government. The unsub.us site is not run or authorized by the FTC.

    well- i beleive it is pretty basic- if you receive a mail about something - you better check out the facts before registering or giving personal info. a friend responded to a mail from someone that said they need to update their paypal info- looking at the logo etc- he did- only to discover it was a fraud. so - it is basically - buyer beware - or consumer beware
