San Juan, PR (PRWEB) March 6, 2008
What used to be direct snail mail and telemarketing targeting the elderly has sadly turned to the Internet in the 21st century. More and more senior citizens and aging baby boomers are avid internet users; reading, planning vacations, banking and keeping in touch with family via email. Unfortunately, criminals and internet scammers also realize the potential of online fraud, known as cyber scams and are targeting the elderly. In a sea of spam and swindles, it is hard to tell what email is good and what is bad. Woomail (found online at http://www.woomail.com) has created a spam free, virus free email service that senior citizens have embraced with eagerness.
In 2007, complaints from consumers 55 or older accounted for 24% of all online fraudulent schemes and scams. This percentage will continue to rise as the number of seniors and baby boomers who communicate online grows. Furthermore, the senior population tends to be more trusting and less suspicious than other generations. When personal information is given voluntarily, or an online ecommerce form is filled out at an Internet retailer, most consumers over the age of 55 stated that they had no idea that in many cases, they were consenting to their personal information being shared or sold. An unscrupulous mass marketing firm or someone looking to defraud the elderly can purchase email lists for a mere pittance. From here, the vicious cycle begins.
Woomail is a new form of safe email that never enters cyberspace and completely eliminates spam. It's a safe haven that senior citizens have adopted that instantly stops scammers, with 100% effectiveness. Seniors groups have been signing up for Woomail, and because of its ability to also block pornography and other illicit material, these Woomail members are also recommending the service to their grandchildren and other seniors.
A personal Woomail account is free of charge for all and it takes just a few minutes to rid spam from a personal inbox forever. Online at http://www.woomail.com, spammers, scammers and criminals are instantly rendered powerless; total control immediately transfers from the sender to the Woomail account holder. Senior Citizens using Woomail can quickly and easily set personal preferences, restrict contact over their email and stop spam, virus and scanners in their tracks.
