Instant Checkmate Spam within a Seven Day Period

Have you ever received a sudden onslaught of spam and wondered where it came from? Bulc Club Statistics make it easy for you to identify who sold your email address and block their spam instantly, with the flip of a switch.


While researching for this case study, we pored through hundreds of emails we’ve received from online services. We found a contest that surreptitiously sold our Bulc Club email address to a number of vendors. We found an online jobs list that shared our information with a handful of third parties.

Spam Watchdog
Imagine you hire a dog-walker so they can walk your dog while you’re at work. While you may be leery about trusting the business, the simple convenience of this service warrants the risk. So you give them your house key with the best of intentions.
