    Toys R Us Australia email spam.

    I set up email addresses for every company I get newsletters from and I notice that the Toys R Us Australia one is now getting spammed with messages like this, be careful if you're on the Toys R Us email list, so far only Harvey Norman and Toys R Us are the only 2 Aussie companies that have let my email address into the public either a staff member's sold them, the company themselves have sold them or they've been hacked.

    Here's the sort of junk I get:

    No chance it's just a coincidence? I might do the same thing and see what happens.

    The email I use for each company is very unique, I'd be impressed if they did get it. Normally they try things like webmaster@domain - domain@domain - owner@domain or information from the whois so Gavin@domain etc.

    These are specific with a mix of characters for the companies I sign up for.
