Re: El Reg Hacked? El Reg sold my data...

Ian,

Serious answer...

It wasn't just my email address but my name, company name, job role and direct line number that they passed on. The third parties confirmed from where they received the information and El Reg confirmed they did indeed supply it.

I've received apologies from many of those involved but, in real terms, this is illegal marketing and fraud.
