About one week ago I registered at this website.
A few hours after registering at this website, I started getting Scam mails / Phishing mails; see below.
These mails are sent on a daily basis.
There isn't a single other website, company or person that knows I have purchased this game or has my email address, except Trion and ZAM. So either the ZAM database has a serious security issue / leak, or ZAM is selling email addresses to third parties (for advertising purposes).
PS. In my profile my address is hidden and I unticked the advertisement options.
Seriously dissapointed in ZAM for causing this.
