Question Serious Anthrax Threat: How to handle suspicious mail?

The latest discovery of one more Anthrax case in New York City is really frightening.

I am sur ethe authorities are hard at work trying to trace the source and prevent further spread.

But in such a situation how do we help and protect ourselves?

I had the following in mind; please add more to the list:

In case you get suspicious mail or mail from a an unknown source-

1) Do not open the evelope
2) Trash it

I am now worried about opening mails which come from regualr junk mailers like Publuisher's Clearing house or Credit ard companies.

I used to open the junk mail to ensure that they are not sending some offers wherein you receive some gifts or trial versions of magazine or CD's some such thing and then you have thirty days to cancel them. I have been duped once before and so I open the junk mail to make sure that I dont get such offers.

Now with thi santhrax scare, what should I do ?

anywhere on the body.. If it is must and should(kahin itching to) use shower-to-shower only.You can find whether shower-to-shower is fake or not by looking at the bottom there is mark like this:--- which confirms that it is not fake.


Note :- if you can't see the sign it means you are fake

Sutradhar, you are not obligated to pay for anything unless you accept to pay for them either in writing or on phone.

But, looks like you are tempted to get magazines for 30 days in mail for free .....

Did someone not just recently say that echarcha.com is run by a Gujju? sutraddhar, are you a gujju? you did once say that your wife is !!

Arye eNRI bhai,

Once I had been duped by a music CD club. I know that most mails cannot charge you without your approval. But many new mails come from companies who send you the opt-out clause and if you dont sign it and send it, they continue their trash mail. I just wanted to make sure that more trash does not come int.

But with the latest anthrax threat I think I will just trash junk mail and risk getting on more junk mail lists.

And yes... I am Maharshtrian and my wife is a Gujju .. but her influence is everywhere .. except offcourse eCharcha.Com - and I have her permission to say this

No, it doesn't work that way. Sometimes you sign up for a FREE offer and agree to receive and view subsequent mailings and need not pay if you return them unused. People like the FREE stuff but don't want to pay for the other stuff and so must open and return subsequent mailings.

Since your wife is a Gujju, let HER open all the junk mail.
