A while ago I ordered stuff off the web. I accidentally registered with my nick name rather than my given name. After having almost all my junk mail stopped by signing up with Life Lock, it started again. I’ve been getting many offers, which can be used by bad-guys, in my company name and my nick-name. I even began receiving phone calls of people saying they are the vendor verifying contact information, I suspect these are false. I went to the vendor’s site and found this:
“In the future, we may make some limited name and postal address information available to other organizations that provide goods or services we feel may be of interest to you.”
I just emailed them and asked them to stop releasing my name, address, and phone number to ‘other vendors’. I emailed them, to verify my suspicion, and have them STOP.
I’m guessing the damage is done, and I’ll be doing with I always do. Tear up the offer and use the return envelope to have them toss it out, not me. Plus I usually write stuff on it, like spammers sucks, etc.
Just thinking out loud, and I might release what vendor I suspect when I have a reply from them.
