    Did TechPowerup give my email to other companies?(GPU Z contest)

    There's any number of ways that your email address can get on a spammers list, including these "facepunch" forums - what are they? Care to give us a link? Just, because you can't think of any other way it happened, doesn't mean it didn't. How do you know your PC isn't harbouring malware, for example? That will steal your email address and a whole lot more, wouldn't it?

    TPU is a well established and highly respectable website & organization and I think it's a bit much to register on here and with your very first post to suggest that TPU would give away your address to spammers of viagra and other fraudulent emails from criminals. *Slap :slap:

    fraudulant emails

    Unfortunately, there's really nothing that you can do to stop it. Email addresses can be 'spoofed' so a message can appear to come from you even though you didn't have anything to do with it.

    Two steps you should take:

    1- Change the password to your email account, so the creep can't use it to send messages in your name.

    2- Consider abandoning that email address if the phony messages don't stop.

    You might want to send a message to your contacts explaining the situation. You'll get a sympathetic hearing because by now everyone is aware of how this can happen.
