something unwelcome from Abe Book in my inbox this morning:
We have been informed by Epsilon, a third-party vendor we use to send e-mails, that an unauthorized person outside their company accessed files that included e-mail addresses of some AbeBooks customers. Epsilon has advised us that the files that were accessed did not include any customer information other than email addresses.
As a reminder, AbeBooks will never ask customers for personal or account information in an e-mail. Please exercise caution if you get any emails that ask for personal information or direct you to a site where you are asked to provide personal information.
be careful, be safe!
Thank you for the heads up. Going forward I will seek another vendor for my book purchases

Since getting this email i have had a huge increase in spam. Really annoying.
I guess the cats out of the bag as it were.
