    Just wondering if anyone else received an email today from “Handmade to Measure” trying to sell curtains and things? I did, and it came to an email address I’ve only ever used for Lightwave stuff (which means either the Lightwave.com or Lightwave.co.uk website, or some other place that is specifically to do with Lightwave). Sadly I used the same email for a couple of websites which means I can’t specifically pinpoint who it is that’s selling my email address to spammers!

    Just received it… I use my email a lot, so couldn’t say from where they got my address.

    Yes, me too, and I’ve definitely only used that address to sign up for LightwaveRF announcements.

    Received two identical emails … Both to email addresses only used for registering on LWRF’s sites, not even related stuff like forums!

    Very poor, two explanations:

    1) they’ve been hacked and either don’t know it, or don’t care
    2) they’re willfully selling our details to other companies

    Either are a pretty poor show
