Dormant SG Account

Postby ChrisKraus » Fri Nov 27, 2015 8:21 pm

I was wondering: I haven't logged into my SG account since about 2012.
(I don't know why I forgot about something this good)
And all of the sudden, I am getting emails on old addresses that I made the mistake of deleting instead of zeroing out.
Is this just a Coincidence?
Thanks-----Chris

This is generally a sign that whatever you signed up with has been hacked, especially if the emails are shady (weird offers, spam, phishing, etc)
For instance, say you signed up on forumZZZ, and you gave out email of ZZZ.word@spamgourmet.com
Now you are getting random weird emails from someone you never heard of sending to ZZZ.word@spamgourmet.com
Usually means forumZZZ got hacked and they stole all the email addresses. This is also an indication you should change your password on that site, and any other sites where you have the same email/password (which is another reason why never to have the same on multiple sites).
