Put spam in its place — Business Management Daily: Free Reports on Human Resources, Employment Law, Office Management, Office Communication, Office Technology and Small Business Tax Business Management Daily
If you’re tired of receiving dozens of unsolicited e-mails each week, there’s now a way you can trash your spam and get rewarded for it. Thanks to the new Spam Recycling Center (http://www.spamrecycle.com), you can forward your junk e-mail to the center, which in turn sends it to the Federal Trade Commission. The FTC audits e-mail messages for fraud. And it gets better. The center will arrange for you to receive a $5 discount coupon from CDnow, an online music retailer. In its first month, the center reports that only about 30 percent of the spam it has collected comes from repeat sources, showing how quickly spammers dive for cover.
