    I signed on to Elite Trader in 2005 using an e-mail address that is unique to this registration. I never received any e-mail that used this address until today when I found two SPAM in my box that were sent last night (5/8/2008). The Subjects were the same:

    “Kasper Sky Alert Notice”

    The contents were identical and asked that I click on the executable.

    ET, I would very much appreciate an explanation.

    We don't sell email addresses and never have, if that's what your wondering.

    Furthermore, if you're wondering why your email got a couple of spams, why don't you ask, the company who hosts your email account.

    What you are saying is possible, of course. But I have 23 currently active e-mail addresses through this provider and this is the only one that received these spam messages. I’d like other ETers to reply to see if they too received this e-mail.

    And thank you, Baron, for your prompt reply.
  4. Nope, no spam from Kasper Sky.
  5. I had 2 emails from them ( for a first time ever) yesterday
  6. Did you turn off the "receive email from ET people" when you signed up?? If not, I think this allows people to email you via ET
  7. Yeah. I got them too.

    And it was to the email account I used for ET signup. I use three email accounts, but rarely use the ET one.

    Does seem like quite a coinkydink. Could ET have been hacked?

    edit: And my option to recieve email from ET members HAS been turned off.
  8. Same same, knew it could only be from here so i just deleted it.

    Only spam so far, which is surprising really.

    (edit-i meant that WAS the only spam so far, not that everything from et was spam)

    yep, got the 2 emails myself. I know for 100% certain they found me thru ET because the email address I use here has "elitetrader" embedded in it so I know who I gave it to. This site is the only place that I have ever given this address to. And the reason I name my accounts like this is when stuff like this happens I know exactly where the breach originated.

  10. Same here.

    Received 2 e-mails on Thursday, May 8th from Kasper Sky. There obviously is a "link" to ET, whether Baron is aware of it or not.
