Filtering works
Scammers usually make use of bots that automatically send such fake emails on a daily basis. They will not stop regardless of how much counter measures have been put in place. However, we can always take advantage of email filters to better protect ourselves. Thankfully for my personal email, I have not encountered spam emails being channelled to my main inbox of late.

It's so obvious!
I actually think it's really funny to read these fake emails. I mean some of them are so obviously scams, it's hilarious. Once in a while I'll see articles online about how this scammer turned out to be a so and so and then they try and run some back story about how they were totally exposed while trying to rip someone off.... I really don't think it's that difficult for people to recognize that someone is trying to pull one over you when you read a spam email these days!
