@DavidLinda  Welcome to the forum.

I'm sure others will disagree me but it looks like your email address has been leaked to the bad guys and the only certain way to stop these is to take the hit and change your email address.

There is no technology substitute for supervising young children's use of technology.  Its a kin to allowing children to prepare food with kitchen knives and hoping they will not cut themselves.  Activities need to be supervised and if they cannot be, then you put the knives out of their reach.
