    I have an anti-spam system: I have a domain to receive my emails like this [email protected].
    So everytime I register an account I give a different email address. I used [email protected] to register here, and voilá, I found out that my gmail spam folder is flooded with emails to that address.

    No worries, I created a filter to delete all incoming messages to that email. Also, I will request the cancellation of my account.

    no surprise there, this site is full of 'verified' users uploading virus infected links and trying to scam everyone who enters. be careful on here, it's 'blackhatworld' for a reason.

    Did you use that Email in The Marketplace? If so with which service?

    I doubt it is BHW selling your details but rather an unscrupulous Marketplace seller.

    I have used different virgin emails with different sellers in the past and those accounts end up getting spammed to death.

    I found i get spam/scam emails straight after buying some services on here (goes straight to spam folder so no big issue) so might be BHW marketplace selling emails as @Asif WILSON Khan suggested.

    Site owner DD smart marketer if he sell members emails he knows he lose long term income ... so definitely he will not do it ....
    I'm using personal email with BHW never got spam email related with IM niche or show that I'm member of BHW ....
    but seems like what Asif told you ....

    or maybe you are just a competitor for BHW and opened this thread to neg reputation ...., similar thing happened before ......

    DD hasn't spammed BHW member list in years.. Back in the day he used to blast emails and mass-PM affiliate stuff. Haven't gotten anything since I think 2009 from this site directly other than stuff about the forum changes

    This happened to me too when I bought Jr VIP and a marketplace subscription to open a sales thread about 18 months ago. I used a new email and only registered it for the marketplace/Jr VIP purchase, so I know 100% it was BHW that the spam originated from.

    But then, the name of the forum is "Blackhat"world, so I expected it, hence why I used a different email.

    Sorry to inform you guys that this email is unique for BWH. That's why my anti-spam system is a powerful tracking system. That address isn't published on my profile nor any other place (I googled it). I only contacted one seller, and gave him another email.
    I don't mind if you think "BHW won't sell my email", I have enough proof. So, why only some members receive spam? In my case, it's clear that I have a low profile (under 10 posts since 2013, never a premium, etc).
    Finally, I have to say that I loved this website because it's plenty of information. I'm not trying to "neg reputation". You can visit my profile and see my activity. As other people say "If it goes to the spam folder who cares". You don't have to worry about me anymore, because I'm closing my account.

    Well bro, if you decide to go, plz close the door gently.
    If you force it down, when you want to come back you might have found it blocked.

    What a surprise, I have a e-mail getting aprox 100 - 200 spam e-mails a day, only used on BHW and service here.. actually I don't care about it. It's what you may expect when you are on a blackhat forum :D

    Riiighht. Guess what we don't do? We don't sell your email addresses to other companies.

    I mean, we'll send out forum updates and services to our email list (but you can stop it happening using the settings in your profile). I can tell they're not always welcomed - mainly when I clean out support spam and read replies to the "do not reply to this email" saying things like "STOP EMAILING ME!!! WHY WON'T YOU STOP?!?" or "HAHAHAHAH, I REPLIED! SCREW YOU" or "FUCK YOU FOR EMAILING ME AFTER YOU BANNED ME".

    And, you know, sometimes people miss the myriad different ways they can unsubscribe to the newsletters. After the 5th rant in caps, I tend to go in their account and quietly unsubscribe them myself.

    So, if you were posting here complaining about our newsletters - fair play. I know they're not everyone's cup of tea. But we emphatically do NOT sell your email addresses onto other people.

    Yeeaahh, but you don't though. Because it doesn't happen.


    You do what you got to do, man. But I wouldn't stomp about on that moral high ground because it's looking pretty shaky.

    If you haven't listed your email anywhere in the forum, it could be due to the database leak that happened years ago. You're receiving these mails because you are on a custom domain and your anti-spam filter isn't good enough, whereas professional service providers like gmail/hotmail/yahoo's anti-spam filter wouldn't let those mails to be even displayed in your spam/junk.
