Paddy Power / 888 casino spam

    Did any other Paddy Power customers out there receive spam purporting to be from "888 casino"? I got scam spam sent to an email address that I only ever provided to PP.

    PP "advertising" 888Casino, there's a first!
    Don't see anything on their site.

    Why on earth would PP help advertise for one of their competitors? It could happen any number of ways. Everyone gets spam email

    That's why "advertising" was in " ". :rolleyes:
    The OP only used that email for PP, a bit strange they got spammed, normally PP would be pretty good at stopping that.

    Sorry if I was unclear. The subject is "Get your 900EUR Welcome Package at 888". This email is not from PP. I don't think it's really from 888 casino either as it looks like some kind of scam and I won't be clicking the links as they go to an address that looks dubious. The email came to an address that I only ever gave to PP.

    Have you a racing post account ? they got hacked last weekend and email addresses were stolen. May be related.

    EDIT: just saw the date of your post - ignore me!
