I get these random spam emails too and never was on any dating sites or anything questionable. Don’t worry, he’s most likely not doing anything wrong. It’s only people fishing for info.

Which dating sites? I think they’re all a little different. When I was on OkCupid (granted this was like 3 years ago), it didn’t auto-generate cities and stuff like that, and when I deleted my profile they stopped sending me emails. There’s a last log-in date on there too that you can check. I haven’t tried any other dating sites though so I can’t speak for them

I get spam emails from match.com because I used to be on there, so does my husband because it’s how we met. I just delete them. As long as your husband isn’t responding to them it’s not a problem

I get “sexy singles in my area” spam all the time. I’ve never had a dating account or even remotely anything close to it.

It’s just spam. That’s what spam is, trying to capture people in one way or another. Trust your husband.

ETA: Do not click on the links. Do you not know what phishing scams are? Phishing scams are scams where website(s) and people(s) attempt to steal your personal information. They can put viruses and malware on your computer. Stop clicking links, and perhaps find a website to educate you on internet safety.

rm2014:  I get spam requests in my junk folder all the time saying “I found you on this, blah blah blah, please write back as soon as possible, blah blah blah” and I haven’t been on a dating site since 2009!

Unless you have a reason to suspect, I’d let it go.

I have never used a dating site or even signed for porn or anything & I get spam emails like that all the time! 

Relax & trust your husband on this one!

rm2014:  Also people use those spam sites to create viruses in your computer. You opening them puts your computer at risk and just generates more.

I just looked in one of my junk folders on my email and I have a ton of spam emails from websites that sound like what your husband is receiving. 

Some Examples:

NewSexMatch

H0rnySextMatch

F~ckBuddy Bang

I have no clue why I’m getting these emails and I have no control over it. I have never visited any of those sites. I used to be on eHarmony years ago, but that’s it. I think your husband is innocent.

I get so many of these types of emails but most go to junk mail. They will always be addressed to me personally and I do wonder how they get my details but its spam and thats all. They are extremely common and many link to websites asking you to ‘sign in’ or ‘confirm bank details’. The best solution is to put it all into junk mail and never even open them. I would definitely choose to believe him unless his recent history or other acts make you think otherwise.
