I've had a particular email address for over a decade, in disuse. Because it's a complicated email address, for a decade it has gotten only a handful of spam (Unsolicited Commercial Email, UCE as it is officially called) per year. Per YEAR. Whilst my active address gets around 150 per day.
I used the disused address for the five pharmacies on here which I have ordered from, starting a year ago. This week, all of a sudden, eight spams came in over a 2 day period. Almost an entire years worth, in 2 days. Conclusion: one of our listed pharmacies either sold my email address, or got hacked into. No, my computer wasn't hacked. I have no viruses.
Why did they do this? They already have me as a customer, why should they want to piss me off? Obviously I will begin setting traps to find out who leaked my email address. I am NOT happy. They HAD my custom, they WILL now lose it.
