Fake Email Addresses

I've worked in marketing and I can say from experience that there are a lot of shady things that go around with your personal information. Unless the company explicitly says they do not share your information, your information is traded, bought, and/or sold to other companies.  Even if they explicitly say that, not all the marketing people know about it so your information may be "accidentally" bundled into one of those lists. Worst part of it all, you won't even have a clue who sold your information unless you have a unique email address for each company. This I knew because I had to assist in some of these things like email scraping. I hated this project.

Basically, I created a script that will go through an entire site and look for email addresses published on it. The emails are then stored into a database which will then be used for email blasts. So, I am creating this list to make scrapers more useless even though it could just take a human user to know this list is total garbage. I hope this will promote some other users to also saturate the data to make it useless for these scrapers.

But, try to avoid using valid emails even if you really hate the person. It is not right, and you should be a better person. I would suggest also to throw in some programming exceptions that would break simpler scrapers like unacceptable symbols or incomplete strings. If you have any valid email addresses that you'd like to donate for this test, feel free to let me know. Although, I have to think about how to verify that the email is indeed yours and for testing.

Need an almost useless email address without registering a new account? Check some of these sites:

Free List of Emails for Test Exceptions but May Appear Legit to Automated Tools Looking for Shady Practices yet Somehow Legal

test@test.com (I assume this is very common since most testers use this)
abuse@google.com (Might as well feed these scrapers and have them automatically send to Google's abuse box)
a@.com (incomplete email)
