Hi,

I was just searching my email address on google and found these two websites that contain my email address. I have no previous communication with both of the websites and I was wandering why my email address is on their database.

[LINK REMOVED]
Note: google warned this site might be a phishing sit but I proceed it anyway.

Any idea?

Thanks!

P.S. I can't find the right topic for this question and thus posted here thinking it will be the right place.

*moderator edit: link removed. Page linked to contained a long list of email addresses. Email addresses (yours and those of other people) should never be posted in a public forum. Spammers and phishers troll the internet looking for addresses to send their junk to. There is no need to hand it to them on a silver platter. - Queen-Evie*

if you have concerns with someone using it to send you unwanted emails I suggest you cancel that address and get a new one .

My answers are my opinion only,usually
