Purchasing private registration with domains

We have purchased many domain names in the last couple of weeks. We have purchased private registration with each one. We have since received non-stop emails from engineregistrydoms.com to register all of them with them. I have reported these to Godaddy's abuse email but have not heard back from anyone. What is the point of purchasing private registration if it is still immediately being provided to spammers?

The private registration blocks your email / contact information from the WHOIS, however by default the WHOIS published email will forward to you. There is an option in the domain settings to bounce / block email sent to the WHOIS published email.

Thank you! I will go through and change the domain settings for each one.
