No Spam Please


It has come to my attention that some spammers are sending out e-mails claiming to come from me (or from other fictitious e-mail addresses at cryer.co.uk).

What is spam? Spam is unsolicited e-mail sent out in bulk, usually for commercial gain. What is a spammer? a low life form, who sends out spam.

One method employed by spammers is to fake the e-mail header to give the impression that the spam came from a respectable person (or site) in order to bypass spam filtering software and to encourage you to open the e-mail.

The only time you might genuinely receive an e-mail from me (brian@cryer.co.uk) is in reply to an e-mail request that you first sent me, and even then I often (but not always) use a different e-mail address.

Rest assured that no spam originates from cryer.co.uk and any e-mails claiming to come from me (or anyone else at cryer.co.uk) are fictitious. Any such spam received should be deleted immediately.
