Apple spammers

[ #9082 ]

I just got spammed by apple. I didn't agree to getting commercial mail from them. All I did was sign up for Apple Developer Connection. Today I got UK-directed spam from them trying to seel engraved iPods.

Not good, apple, not good.

What a shame that my job involves detecting and blocking spammers.

  • I don't recall ever getting spam via addresses I've given to Apple (I usually tag the addresses I give, and Apple is no exception). Maybe it is an Apple UK thing?
  • Yeah, it looks to be. It's the address I gave when I had to register for applecare when my iBook screen broke.

    I'm going to be lenient with them though. If they send another they get it posted to NANAE. If they send more than that, they'll end up blacklisted. (all this only because there's no way to unsubscribe from their junk).
