Re: Unsubscribes

It's not necessarily the business selling their contact list to spammers. Sometimes it's a rogue employee who has access to the customer database and wants to make a few quick bucks. That happened where I work, when a call-centre employee sold the customer database to scammers, who then phoned customers to offer fake warranties. I think that the employee in question ended up with a conviction over that.
