ANY unsolicited bulk Advertisement Email, (commonly known as "Spam"
or "Junk Email"), never have, never will — in fact, we have never sent
Advertisement Email, ever — NOR do we compile lists*
of email addresses, NOR do we sell, trade, or otherwise share
Email addresses of our Customers (or anyone sending us email) with any
other party, whatsoever,
period! Additionally, you will never
receive Email FROM US with a "sender address" ending with
our Website Domain "@Bustersoft.com"
— we answer all Email from a totally separate Email Service, (but you will
be able to immediately recognize that our response to your message is from
If you receive Email from
any sender ending in "@Bustersoft.com"
— it is a forgery, (meaning it did not come from Bustersoft.com),
and may contain a Trojan or Macro-Virus.

only exception to this is that we do keep off-line "Want
Lists" of the Email Addresses of persons who have requested products which
are not now, but may become available at some time in the future. These
"Want Lists" are guarded as if our own future depended on their safety
— because we believe our Company's Good Name does depend
on our using effective measures to protect the security of our Customers
Questions and Answers:
Question: How could Email be
sent from somewhere other than where it says it came from?
Answer: Usually, forged "Sender"
addresses are chosen from known, trustworthy sources to add confidence
to the recipient as to the validity of faked Email (i.e., to increase the
chance it will be read). Here are actually 3 possible answers to the above
question; in order of highest probability;
1 — A "Trojan" sends
itself randomly to and "from" email addresses
it finds in any computer it has infected. Contrary to popular belief, these
email addresses do not always have to be in the infected computer's "address
Books" and many "Trojans" send randomly worded email, and
completely without the knowledge of the infected computer's owner! (We
have been called all sorts of names by people who just couldn't believe
their computer had tried to send us a Virus — So, don't just take our word
for it, click here

2 — Unscrupulous
Internet "Advertisers" who do not wish to be known or contacted often use
forged "Sender" addresses in that "junk email" which fills up so many of
our Email Inboxes every day (including ours). Most of these "rascals" simply
use a fictitious "Sender" address (that doesn't exist), but the "grand
rascals" of this bunch sometimes forge REAL Business Email Addresses to
increase the chances that their Email will be read.
3 — Someone you
may or may not know, being "funny" or thinking it is fun to "do stuff"
secretly. These can range from the "office jokester," the "family cut-up,"
someone who is jealous of you or the Company they pretend to be, or just
the "neighborhood kid" who, before computers, would have called the local
Grocery asking about "Prince Albert in a can." But now, "the neighborhood"
is now infinitely larger than it was in the days of "Prince Albert" pranksters,
and some of today's pranksters could care less about including a "payload"
that would cause damage to some innocent person's computer.
Question: I recently got an
Email from you (from Bustersoft.com) that had an attachment that didn't
do anything or make any sense, but my Anti-Virus software didn't report
a "Virus" or "Trojan" in it. How is that?
Answer: You did NOT receive
that email from us! Here are 3 possible answers, in order of probability:
1 — Your Anti-Virus Software
is out-of-date, or it is not set for (or capable of) "real-time scanning."
Our last Bi-Weekly Update of our Anti-Virus Software included
detection for 60 new and 32 altered (existing)
Viruses and Trojans! If your Anti-Virus Software has not been updated within
the last month, your computer may not be able to detect dozens
and dozens of new or altered "Viruses and Trojans" — unlike Stores which
"move" their oldest "stock" first, Newer Viruses and Trojans
are the most likely to be found in your Email "basket" on any given day.
(Update your Anti-Virus Software regularly, and make sure it is optioned
for "Real-Time Scanning." Replace it if it cannot be updated or optioned
for "Real-Time Scanning.")
2 — Perhaps that particular
Email was one sent by an "unscrupulous Bulk Email Advertiser" (or "junk
emailer" mentioned above), and had no dangerous "payload" in it or its
attachment. (These "benign" messages sometimes have "embedded-links" which
will load a graphic or such from a particular Web site or page. And sometimes,
a recipient's Email Address can be verified by such methods.)
3 — Sometimes — repeat
sometimes — a "Trojan" will send an email without its destructive "payload."
Why or how this occurs is a matter of debate, but it is documented to occur
Question: My Anti-Virus Software
tells me that I have to pay for further Updates. Should I continue to use
it as it is, pay for an update, or just disable it?
Answer: You should never use
your computer without some protection, but your "old" Anti-Virus Software
is virtually useless if it has not been updated recently. Whether you continue
using your "old" Anti-Virus Software "as is," pay to update your existing
Anti-Virus Software, buy a newer Anti-Virus Product, or switch to one of
the high quality Free Products available is strictly your choice — but,
every day you delay making that choice is another day your computer, and
every file in it, is at risk. (Click

Question: Why would someone
[or something] use Bustersoft.com as a forged "Sender" address?
Answer: Who knows for sure?!
People of every known (and probably several unknown) personality type(s),
from almost every corner of almost every Nation, and with any imageable
"cause," philosophy, political agenda, religion, or set of beliefs, have
easy access to the Internet today. Some possible reasons might be:
1 — Perhaps our "URL"
was not chosen by a human, but at random by a self-propagating
"Trojan" in the infected computer of someone who has sent us Email, or
sent/received an Email to/from a third party with our email address (or
website URL) in it, "bookmarked" or simply visited our website recently.
2 — Perhaps it was chosen
purely at random by an ill-advised person or persons who simply did not
wish to reveal his or her true Email address for a variety of reasons.
3 — Perhaps it might
be chosen by a person or persons who wish to use our Good Name and reputation
to further advance their own cause, be that to get their junk email read,
or to trick the object of their email "joke," or even to more easily hoodwink
someone they may or may not know into opening a dangerous Virus or Trojan,
sent for whatever reason they might have.
4 — And least likely,
we hope and pray, is the possibility that someone might not appreciate
where we live and conduct business (the United States — the South), that
we support our Nation, what we publish, what we offer Free to the World
on our website — including The Holy Bible in several Versions, or that
we obviously are of the Christian faith.
