I received unsolicited SPAM below from trustresponse.com
The email address he used was created solely to purchase banner crusher software through JVZoo and was never used any place else.
I have had at least 6 email addresses stolen / shared from products I bought at JVZoo & used by people I never heard of to send me unsolicited SPAM.
Two spammers who I confronted recently admitted that someone on a blackhat forum is selling email addresses of people who has bought WSO’s .
Prior to receiving this email, I never heard of the sender and have no idea how they got my email address.
The SPAM email I received (below) is in violation of United States Code Title 47, Section 227(a)(2) (B) CAN SPAM Laws
1. Sender stole my email address, and used it without my permission.
2. Sender sent unsolicited SPAM without my permission
3. Sender did not provide a name, address and contact info in their email as required by law.
Unless someone specifically opts into a list and request information, no one has the right to send them email advertisements.
This is also theft of my private email address, theft of virtual property, identity theft, harassment and an invasion of my privacy.

Subject: This is just for you:
I would appreciate if you did NOT share this e-mail
with your friends, co workers, or family.
They may be mad that you found this first.
This is the easiest way I’ve ever seen to make a
few thousand dollars on the very first go…
The best news is, this is totally FREE.
What are you waiting for?
