Shine or Spam?

On In


Are You Getting Spam Mails in the Inbox After Registering on Shine.com?

This post is about my personal experience with Shine.com. The creators of Shine.com claims that it is a job portal. Two days ago I got an SMS on my mobile that "Thank you for registering on Shine.com". I was wondering how is that possible without my knowledge! Later on that day, I also got an email on my Outlook regarding "Verify Email for your Shine.com". It was the same email address with which I have registered on Naukri and Monster. Sometime ago I have created an account on Shine, but for some reason I had deleted that account. I went to my Outlook and marked that mail as Junk. Soon it went to the Junk folder. I thought the issue is resolved. 

Yesterday I noticed that I have got three spam mails in the Outlook Inbox. I was afraid why Microsoft is delivering spam mails in the Inbox. I went to Outlook, opened each mail and moved it to Junk. I felt angry and frustrated when it repeated the same thing today; today also I got three spams in the Inbox. 

This issue has actually started after getting that email from Shine.com. I remembered that I had deactivated my account on Shine because of this very issue. I went to my Outlook's Junk folder, opened the Shine email and clicked on Verify Email Address. After verifying the email address, I changed my email address and phone number. I hope that the issue has been resolved.

      Thank you for your suggestion but here I mean the mails from unknown senders with attachments. There's no unsubscribe link in such mails...
