Block email technique:

Most of the time, spammers try to over rule the spam filter technique by putting some additional characters along with the words. For example, if a spammer wants to advertise laptop for sale ads on any classified site like buynow.com. he/she can use **laptop for sale** or (*)laptop for sale(*).
