I just bought my first cell phone last week. The store clerk asked me
for an email, and while I have an alternate email that I use for signing up for most things, I figured I would want to receive these emails in my real email account that I check often. I also never expected to receive anything more than necessary billing information.
This is a university email address that I have had for 4 years with not a single spam email. I have given out this email only to my friends, family and teachers. There is no other place that these strangers could have gotten my email address. But lo and behold, 5 days after purchasing my first phone and giving my email to the clerk, I have 2 spam messages from disposable email addresses.
How do I stop these from happening? Should I change my signup email? Or has Koodo already sold my data at this point? I am very disappointed in what otherwise seemed to be an alright company.
