Yeah, I got one from the Gear Page as well. The admin on that page was very helpful and tracked it down to this forum.

It's annoying and impossible for me to log in to the Gear Page account to stop the spam as I'm not a member.

This forum has no option to stop emails. If I go to my account, I can only add a newsletter, not remove myself from any email list. :mad:

I haven’t even checked my junk email today. This one came to my current I use email. Somewhere the address was stolen or farmed out to a list and that list is being used to spam. I was surprised that it got past my spam and even more so when the email was from here. Of course the forum admin email could have been stolen tue same way. Now to check my spam folder.

Should,d I be
I haven’t received one, probably because my email address has changed since I joined, and I haven’t updated. This problem looks like a data hack. :mad:
Same here. Changed my email address 6 months ago and I haven't got any GT emails. As an aside, I had no idea it would be such a hassle to inform all my previous contacts. There always are some cropping up that I forgot about. Unfortunately that didn't occur with the CRA....ie Canadian tax man.

Well, since this first GT email now I am mindsets with spam. I might have to get a new email address. I am holding out and deleting and sending everything to junk and deleting them. I hope it decreases as they are deleted and left unopened.

That’s a real shame. I have no idea of what happened, and haven’t heard anything from the owners. Apparently, it was widespread, whatever the source. If there is an actual product tied to it, I would be glad to inform the manufacturers that they have lost my business, permanently.

Companies hire this out sometimes. I think it is possible they ent even know about it.
Sometimes people are paid by referral, as in direct someone to a web site and get a referral fee. If that’s the case, the seller migh have no idea that they are being advertised with spam.

I am always amazed how sneaky online spam email harvesting fraud etc gets. If some of these people put half as much thought into a legit business or line of work they could really go paces. But sadly it seems the damage has been done my sspam is through the roof now.
