email harvest/breakin?

On the 28th, I received a scam email to an address I've used only for signing up for this forum. Any chance that someone either broke into the server or managed to persuade the forums? Or, maybe more likely, someone has broken into your bulk email provider or account to harvest the addresses (looks like CriticalImpact?)

I get them all the time but my wallet got stolen in Europe in Italy. I just pay no attention!

I think that to some extent it's just part of doing business online. If there were an actual hack, you'd be getting worse than one spam email. I don't know what type of security they use here but in general, it seems like if you've got your email out there online somewhere, you're going to get some spam/scams here and there.

I'm sure that's not an answer that really satisfies anyone, but...

We are not aware of any breach and have had no other reports. We take security seriously however and so if you want to forward the mail to the help desk we can take a look. support@ fiberglassrv.com
It's possible that you might have been a victim of a sniffer however. E-mail can be sort of hijacked mid stream and info collected and then reused.
