Getting all kinds of spam email from D&DH

Postby Iowabucks » Mon Jan 02, 2012 6:34 pm

The last week just started a new trend for me. I'm getting all kinds of spam email with "Deer and Deer Hunting" attached to the subject line.

I'm sure this isn't straight from them or their fault for that matter, but would like to figure out whats going on here. I have had a real big spike in junk emails in the last week or two. I get the regular D&DH emails with stories, pictures and hunting related articals, but i'm also getting spam emails with titles like:

Custom Cardfinder by Deer and Deer Hunting
Fingerhut Partners by Deer and Deer Hunting
eHarmoney Dating by Deer and Deer Hunting
Flooring Specialists by Deer and Deer Hunting
HD programming by Deer and Deer Hunting
HD TV Specials by Deer and Deer Hunting

These spam emails look like they are coming from D&DH but have your regular spam content. I'm trying to figure out how this is happening. Did D&DH sell my email address? Did my email address get compromised? How else would my email address get connected to D&DH?

Your situation does not sound good. I'll be very interested to hear their response. You might want to try emailing Ben directly @ Ben.Sobieck@fwmedia.com

I have gotten two or three recently. I did send the last one, e-harmony I think to Ben but haven't heard back yet. I am wondering if the spammers were able to harvest emails somehow. I can't imagine D&DH would sell or share them. That would make me very unhappy :x

That sounds to me like they are refering to postal service junk mail.
