MyStore Rewards - obnoxious!

7 posts in this topic

I just made a small coin supply purchase on eBay via paypal and got this in my inbox - I found it SPAMMY, to say the least. I probably won't be doing any further business with this person as a direct result of this nonsense. I don't appreciate my PayPal information and email address being shared automatically when I buy an item.


The email:




Thank you for your recent purchase from [sELLER]. We received your PayPal payment of $8.31 on April 29, 2007. Since you paid with PayPal, you automatically qualify to join our MyStoreRewards program where you can easily earn cash reward rebates on all your purchases (including this one!).

That is a bit obnoxious.

It has the look of one of those emails that is going to ask for a password.

With all the bad things you read can happen, it worries me to click on links in emails. My system security should catch any problems but I don't know enough about some of this type stuff to be sure. I may be a bit too paranoid about this. smile.gif
