I chose Aweber as the company to use as they are well known to be one of the best.
Today I receive an email from someone who signed up to my list with a specific throw-away email address they registered ONLY for the reason of downloading the report.
It turns out that after not disclosing their email address to anyone else, that they have received spam on that email address.
I thought it must have been an issue with the company they registered their email with (yahoo) but after a quick search, I found the following article on the Spamcop forum:
How do I sue an identifiable Texan spammer illegally using traceable email addresses? - SpamCop Discussion
It turns out that the email the person on my list received traces back to the SAME domain mentioned in the Spam cop forum post from much earlier this year!!!!
Anyone else had anything like this going on?
I'm now facing court proceedings (damages for £750) over a breach of the data protection act (which *I* haven't committed) and it sounds like Aweber may have some security issues that need to be sorted out QUICK!!!
