shopping cart spam

  • somehow, someone managed to cause Crutchfield to send an email to one of my addresses Friday, claiming "We think you may have left something behind"

    But when I used that address and your "recover password" feature, the response I received unambiguously stated "The address you entered,  {redacted}  is not in our records."

    I find this combination extremely troublesome.  There were no previous emails from Crutchfield.com to this address, in the past 6 months at least.  How could someone forging my address get so far as to save a cart, without anything being sent to confirm they really had access to the address?

  • Hi obob,

    Thanks for letting us know about this. I'm checking with some people internally now on this, and will be sending you a Private Message shortly to gather a bit more information.
