    I went to E-Bay over a year ago to purchase MRE's. I was forced to registered with my personal E-mail address, not the address I use for web sites or internet purchases that I receive order confirmations. I read E-Bay's Privacy practices before handing over my address.

    The past two months I have been getting spam from a finance company out of Florida. I went to their web site to unsubcribe my e-mail address at least five times and since then I have gotten more spam then ever. On their site I also went to the link to tell me from whom this company obtained my address from and it stated E-Bay. The
    E-mails come from different addresses each time and read as follows........

    "I hope all is ok with you how is your day going;

    Good Bye Ashley N"

    I have blocked and bounced back over 700 addresses from this company.
    My spam protector catches what it can since the addresses are always different. Today alone, since 6 pm last night 36 mailings have hit my spam protector along with my mail box alone. That is the count without the bounces.

    I called my internet carrier. I have contacted my mail server. I have contacted E-Bay over the last month with 22 messages and reports of abuse.
    No one has , will, or state, they can do anything. My only recourse, I can see at this time, is to change my address. I don't want, nor should I have too.

    HELP.
