I got an email tonight from Target to add to the list.
Got a few of those over the weekend. One of them is from CollegeBoard.org. Guess Epsilon is quite diverse. Here's to a summer of spam
Well, I just got an e-mail from Citibank Business, which would be due to my credit card account I have for my side business. Will be interesting as I've never gotten a spam e-mail at my side business e-mail. I guess if I do, I know why...
In the English language, the use of the word "our" generally refers to oneself and present company.
It's not that complicated.
Yeah, he was referring to "our" as in - the whole world that's ever registered an email address with any retailer. Our - the collective whole of this forum's participants.
Did I do something to offend you? Is there really a need for the overt sarcasm and belittling?
I've gotten a few of those also. Crazy... :eek2:
Got one of those over the weekend. Mine was .RAR file format.
Well, it wasn't a zip file so it must be legit. :lol:

So you were offended at my confused smiley and "huh?" response to your confused smiley post so you responded with sarcasm and unnecessary belittling. I understand. But still not sure why I deserved that. Not exactly a way to carry on a conversation.
This reminds me of the point I always make when companies try and sell me identity-theft-protection...
I'm not the one being careless with my identity... The businesses and banks are the ones getting hacked and leaking info... and on top of that they are the ones allowing people to "steal" your identity without properly verifying who they are talking to... so why do I have to pay and clean up after their mistakes?
Not hardly, It's been all over the press.
Between this and RSA getting hacked through that Adobe issue, not a good time for security lately.
My ISP uses gmail and very rarely does anything get through (and when it does, Apple Mail usually catches it). I check periodically to catch the false positives, however. I haven't seen anything unusual recently.
Then Comodo getting hacked and all the false Certificates that came out from that and PSN supposedly getting hacked by Annonymous, no doubt a bad time for security.
Well, add 800-Flowers and Hilton Honors program to those that use Epsilon. Just got an e-mail today from both of them...
Yeah, I'm pretty tight with what I put on the web. My name is NEVER posted on the web anywhere. The only places that have a name, address and phone number are banks, CC companies and retailers, which of course are some of the ones affected here. It kinda' peaves me off when they send out emails that include my full name though. They seem to think it allays fears of phishing and makes the emails more legit.
However, this is one reason I stopped using my full name even with retailers and subscription sites like webhosting companies. I now request a second card for each CC with an alternate name, or with just my first and middle initials and last name and an alternate billing address. That way I can use the alternate info on retailers' sites and still have the CC work with the AVS systems.
Have gotten a total of 7 wanring emails as of today (Chase,BofA,Walgreens..)
And got my first phishing email from that today(Chase)
yeah like I'm gonna fall for that.
Jeese - I'm not getting anything from any of those companies - legit or not...
