My Leaked Apple Email Address

The mail logs gleaned some interesting stuff today.

A few SPAMS ALLEGEDLY FROM AMERICAN EXPRESS were sent to my apple store email address.

The alarming part is that email address is used only for purchases from the APPLE STORE.

Until now I guess.

The question is how did that email address get shared?

Was it sold/given away, was somebody’s database broken into, or did PHISHERS find it by accident?

Better check that credit card.
