I am so sick of e-mails from Orchard Bank.
Every day or two comes another. I know they exist but I cannot block them. The address is different each time I receive one.

I have no idea where they got my address. Google says they service people with poor credit. My credit is excellent. I don't want to hear from then. The new Hotmail will no longer allow you to see 'properties' to get the address of sender without opening the e-mail. I have marked them as 'junk' but they appear anyway. Any suggestions?

I don't know where their mail office is or I would call. Think that would do any good?

1. I had numerous emails from a company. I would block it.
next time, it had a different email address. You are correct you can't kill it. And you can't un subscribe. I didn't answer and they finally stopped. Just like the tele marketers. They would call, I would report them. The next time same company , different telephone number.

2. Get another e-mail account that has an effective block spam feature
Not AOL - theirs doesn't filter very well, either.

3. Are you using a webmail application?
If not you should be able to set up rules to handle those emails.
If you are it depends upon which application.

4. You should be able to filter them right into the trash
using keywords - they can change the address but as long as they have "Orchard Bank" in the title or text it should work.

7. The e-mails go right into my junk folder in Hotmail.
I cannot seem to find a way to keep them and certain others from even getting that far. I also get tons of mail for someone named 'Duane' They are just as annoying and never stop.

I know I am open to spam like everyone else but Hotmail does a pretty good job. I only wish I could block sender permanently so they never get as far as the junk folder like I can with my family account w/Comcast.

5. Does Orchard Bank Sell Viagra from Nigeria?
I'm wondering if the email you are getting even come from Orchard Bank, or if they come from some organization trying to get personal information from you.

6. Create a filter to park them in their own folder and then mass delete them.
