I have received notification of email breaches from Kroger, Best Buy and Home Depot so far. They seem legit as they are not asking for any info, just notifying me of probable phishing scams based on these breaches. so how many credit cards got info stolen recently?
I have gotten notices from Chase, Walgreens and Target, so far. What a pain.
Hum? I just got a notice from Target and WalMart.
They said only the emails were compromised.
Well, I guess I ought to hearing from Walgeens soon , or a spammer pretending to be them.
sounds like they all used the same email service.
“only the emails were compromised”
correct. I just wonder how much more spam I will get now.
I was told by ROBERT HALF (a place I’ve sent my resume to) that my email was compromised...
It seemed to be in relation to another company they use - can’t remember the name, sorry.
Best Buy email said a company called “Epsilon” was use for email services. I assume a lot of big companies used this service.
Spam is a four-letter word!
Funny thing: A couple of months ago I was contacted by Comcast and asked to confirm my email addresses. (I have one for family stuff, one for business stuff and another just for my personal stuff.) I spoke to a Comcast rep on the phone to verify the authenticity of the request and did an online interactive session with one of their reps.
They had some email addresses of mine going back 5-6 years (moved to another state) and I had to clear those out. Since I went through all of this with Comcast, I now receive SPAM at all three email addresses, whereas before I was receiving NONE. Grrrrr!
Epsilon was use for email services.
Roger that! “Epsilon Interactive, a vendor based in Dallas, Texas ...”
Home Shopping sent me a notice
I know one thing, whoever stole this has a LOT MORE than just names and E-Mails. We’re being suckered.
After all, what good is that info? A name means very little in this country, when there are between 10 and 100,000 people out there with the SAME NAME. Obviously, there must be more to it.
I was notified by Kroger and US Bank. Suppose to be just emails compromised.
I got one today from Chase about emails.
I got an email from TIVO saying my email and first name were compromised.
“what good is that info”
