Re: Scammers started using my norton email

Nobody has published your email from Norton. As bjm_ notes above, these are scam emails being sent to random email addresses. The senders have no way of knowing if you ever had a specific product. They are just playing the odds. 

And why would Norton give your email address to a competitor???


Re: Scammers started using my norton email

And I have never used McAfee products on my computers, and I have been receiving similar scam emails for McAfee, and the Norton ones. It is just a coincidence that this particular spam started around the time you started using Norton.

How long have you been using the email that you used to register with Norton? All the scammer needs is the email address, and if you have been on the web with the same email used to register with different sites, that email is easy for hackers/spammers to find. Use the link in bjm_'s post above mine to see if your email has been found on the dark web.

Re: Scammers started using my norton email

Yes. That is an example of the scam emails getting sent to random email addresses. If you were able to contact all the recipients, probably 50% or more have never had any contact with Norton.
