Is anyone else getting spam from the new owners of MYBG. I have contacted them and asked them to stop but they still continue to send it 2 or 3 times a week I have even clicked the link to stop it but it still comes and more to the point where did they get my email address from? has MYBG become a spammer

So far I haven't had any SPAM but I do know that 'Worldwide Group' based in Ireland, charges for advertising worldwide on several websites and will translate in Russian and other languages. They charge a lot for this but it is tempting as it infers that your property will reach a wider market. However, when you scroll down to the other websites they use, up comes 'Mybulgaria.info! Somewhere along the line you may have made an enquiry about buying or selling a Bulgarian property on any of these sites hence the 'SPAM'. The email addresses would be found when you register with any of the websites because isn't this standard practice?

I've never registered with 'Mybulgaria.info and have no desire to, I do know that Worldwide now own 'Mybulgaria.info but how they got my email address I'll never know.

Oh didn't know that Cheekychops. Perhaps they want to 'own' this forum too! [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

You may have given your email/other info to another company in the past? It's a well know fact that some companies will sell contact details to others so maybe that's how they got it?

Well said Blink and oh so true there are many companies who make a fortune doing exactly as you have said.

I have often wondered where my email address ends up because recently I have had loads of 'junk' mail from every conceivable property sites. I assume this is because our house is for sale! As far as Worldwide is concerned I noticed that another link on their site is to flights and I suspect all of us have 'surfed' and booked with an air carrier. Ho hum another downside to internet it knows more about all of us than interpol, CIA, MI5 put together!
