My Question or Issue
I am really upset. On January 20, 2020, I got kicked out of my own Spotify account. Talk with the customer service, was able to get my password/email reset. Ever since then I start to receive spam/phishing emails to my Spotify login email. This morning I receive this email:
How are you today, I hope you are doing great. It is my great pleasure to contact you and I hope you don't mind, I was just surfing through the Internet search when I found your email address, I want to make a new and special friend, I hope you don't mind.
My name is Dr. Tracy William, I am from the United States of America but presently I live and work in England...etc."
Okay, so how the heck did he find my email address? I then google my own email address, and found this:
Posted two days before my account is hacked. I do not believe someone is able to get this many Studnet accounts without a data leak or an inside job, most of the passwords are unique complex passwords. Spotify needs to take action to protect customer's information. I look forward to hearing from yall.
