How often do you check your SPAM folder?

I realized this morning that I had not checked my email SPAM folder in weeks, if not months. Once in awhile a legitimate email makes it into my SPAM folder, perhaps from someone I had not communicated with in awhile. This morning I saw mostly "You have been billed $500 for this or that" and supplications from Donald Trump and other Republicans. But no emails from long lost friends. Any idea how the "big bill" emails work? Are we supposed to contact them and give them our credit card information, so we can get a "quick refund"? I don't have the time (or cajones/huevos) to mess with them. Anyway, how often do you check your SPAM filter?

I haven't checked it in forever but your post is a good reminder that maybe it's time for me to do this.

Often it's stuff that is not even worth taking the time to delete.

@vandana7 He would indeed. There were 12 notices in my Spam folder. They're gone now.

Almost never. Not unless I'm expecting an e-mail and haven't gotten it.

@kaylachan "Should" is a word I seldom use. @FourWalls can help you with the literary reference.

Yikes. Do you delete anything? Or just leave it there?

@TheHorse I go through it first to see if anything is a legitimate message and the legit ones are then moved to the inbox, all the junk is then deleted.

@LeaPea2417 I think y junk gets automatically deleted after awhile. I checked my SPAM filter this morning. Nothing of interest there.

Same here. I may check it a bit more often, just in case something legit is in there.

Every day. I usually have a half dozen emails in it. Some are legitimate. Have a good day.

I didn't find any "real" stuff in there this morning. But I may check a bit more often.
