It seems as though someone sold my home email, or I’ve been data-mined? Or, someone is gathering a mailing list via an eBay account under a different ID? This evening I got an email without my name, just my email, offering “Parts for your Racing Kart”, specifically heel stops with hardware. The sender was D_O_T_B@msn.com.
No tin foil hat here, but I’ve never heard of this seller, and a PO box is the address in Nipomo, CA. The embedded links are for facebook, and I don’t have an account. Sent via “MailChimp”
Anyone else get the email, and do you know who it is? Google gives me “Kartmaster” at that address, and there is a website.
There *is* a Kartmaster parts company in Nipomo, CA that does make heel stops. <shrug> Am a bit surprised as I’ve also never seen direct email used for karting and you might be right that something fishy is going on.
