    I received this as well. I am familiar with their products and would expect they are actually looking for reviews.

    We have not ever sold or exposed any emails of any members here. I am going to ban the company name and its website from being used in our forums.

    Yeah this is the first time I've ever had anything connected to my email from [H] besides notifications. I didn't think you would whore out our emails, thanks for the conformation.

    Ive gotten it too. Though i have also gotten similar offers on slick deals, how they got my real name and real email account on slick deals is kinda scary.

    It would seem that someone is selling your information.
