Has Exetel been breached?

Postby hzvoip on Thu Dec 15, 2016 10:31 am

Hello,

I'm starting to receive SPAM and SCAM emails to an email address I only ever gave to Exetel (AFAIK) for billing and accounting purposes.

If other people have experienced the same issue, they should +1 this post as there are three explanations for this:

  1. Exetel has been breached and their custeomr address book was leaked and is now being circulated amongst the spammers
  2. Exetel has been selling their customer data base to third parties
  3. I have inadvertently given this particular address to some other web site or forum and they have lost or sold it

The first two options would not bode well for Exetel and hence I'd encourage anyone who had a similar experience to come forward.

Cheers,
heinz

It's either 3, or a spammer guessed it.
