Surprisingly, it actually isnt safe to unsubscribe from spam emails this way — in fact, some scammers rely on your click to access even more of your information. Instead of clicking unsubscribe, both Total Defense and Ricks Daily Tips agree that you should simply just mark the message as spam in your inbox instead.
What happens when you unsubscribe from spam emails?

If the message is seriously malicious, the “unsubscribe” link may take you to a site configured to infect or compromise your system. It may result in a malware infection or system compromise.
Should I block sender domain?

Can I block an email?
