    It was an example, I'm sure it's possible to buy/rent a proxy service in Europe.
    You could also use Epik's anonymize service, And it's free
    It's in the Us, but it gives you a different phone number, so no spam on your phone

    My inboxes have 200K junk emails (I am a Real Estate agent) mostly from other agents trying to get me to show/sell their listings or vendors trying to sell me services. I get very little from domain spam relatively speaking.

    I don't know what kind you own either...your volume of ownership has no bearing on anything. You are fortunate if you only get three unwanted interactions a week. On the number of names I own, I get over 150 a week...and that is with privacy in place.

    Yeah, and maybe a second house... a second job, and a second wife, maybe another set of kids... yeah, I'll just duplicate my life so that scammers have a second source of contact info.

    If you own 6K domains, all with current and correct contact info: name, phone numbers, email, and home or business address, and only get 3 contact attempts per week then you definitely have some level of WHOIS privacy, whether that is GEO like the European GDRP or one that comes free with the registrar, as with Uniregistry and others.

    I don't use privacy either.

    I use a dead-end skype number (voice mail only) as the phone and my regular gmail as the email. Gmail does a great job of filtering out just about every spam message. I wouldn't use your regular phone number if possible. It can get really annoying if the wrong place starts sending you text messages.

    My phone actually never stops ringing there was is a domainer that got an answering machine which asked all calls to be made to another number. This number was a premium per minute number and the guy was paying for the service and making profit from the spammers. I read about it here long time ago.
