How To Stop Camp Lejeune Lawsuit Spam Emails & Texts

Camp Lejeune lawsuits are the talk of the town at the moment. Considering the amount of buzz around this noteworthy litigation, there are countless lawyers working to introduce the issue to uninformed veterans who may be eligible to file a claim. Unfortunately, their seemingly honorable intent has resulted in an endless flood of emails, texts, and other advertisements cluttering the inboxes and feeds of unwanting individuals. 

If you are tired of the spam, we are here to help you set in motion a few methods of filtering out unwanted messages and advertisements. 

Stop Camp Lejeune Emails!

If you do not have your email settings fine-tuned, you may find more and more of this spam in your primary inbox. If you are a veteran who could be eligible to file, these emails may be warranted, but nobody wants to go through the effort of reading and deleting thousands of spam emails individually. 

If you go speak to a Camp Lejeune lawyer, you will find out whether you are eligible to file immediately. Then, there is no need to read any of the spam emails you are receiving. 

Here are a few ways you can minimize the amount of Camp Lejeune spam in your email inbox.

Opt-Out of the Emails

Some emails will offer you the option to click a link or button that unsubscribes you from their list. Though, this is only recommended if you can verify that the email was sent by a legitimate company. If it was sent by a spammer, clicking the link may cause additional issues or invite even more spam! Instead of clicking the link, mark the email as spam. This may give you the option to unsubscribe from the list that was used to reach you. 

Adjust Your Spam Filters

Large email providers like Gmail and Hotmail provide users with the option to customize their spam filter settings. You can set it to be more aggressive or to allow certain messages from trusted senders.

Stop Camp Lejeune Texts!

If you are not interested in the messages you are receiving via text, you are often given instructions on how to opt-out of the messaging. When there are no instructions you can alert your mobile service provider that the message is spam by forwarding it to SPAM. 

To forward a text message to spam, simply forward it to the number “7726” (this is the lettered code for SPAM when typed into a phone). After forwarding a message to SPAM, you can also block the number that sent the message. While they may be able to use another number to attempt to contact you again, this may stop them from reaching out again in the near future.

Once You’ve Seen One Camp Lejeune Ad, You’ve Seen Them All

There is good reason for the actions of the lawyers who are securing advertising slots on television and online — Camp Lejeune represents an injustice committed by the federal government that many are not aware of.
