Spammed By Acurazine Sponsor?

I don't know whether the Acurazine forum has sold user names/addresses or whether they were purloined some other way but I've been spammed by Dupli-Color with an Acurazine banner over the top of the ad. Now, I've used Dupli-Color products, I like Dupli-Color products but I don't really need unsolicited emails from them.
That said, this is the first and only time it's happened. Hopefully one won't turn into a flood.

Cheers!

Wait you're getting emails ...?

Can you post a screen shot of the email and the sender? We can have the IT team look at it.

Can do. Curiously when I print the email the Acurazine banner disappears so, the top image is a print screen, the other two are scans of the printed email. If they want I can forward the original email. PM me if that's needed.

Since you're a moderator you can probably delete this entire exchange from the public forum. It really has nothing to do with the RDX.

Cheers!

After checking my spam folder, looks like I got it too.


We'll move this to the AZ Help section. Can an RDX mod do the needful? Thanks!

My apologies for any unwanted emails. We occasionally sent out promotional emails on behalf of our partners, this being one of them. To be clear, we don't share our mailing list or any personal information with any outside companies. Instead, they provide us with the content and we send it directly.

That said, we completely understand if you prefer to not receive these messages. You can unsubscribe at any time via the "Unsubscribe" link at the bottom of the email. This link specifically applies to future promotional emails and will leave all your forum-relates messages (notifications, etc.) in tact.
