How are they getting my email if none of these companies is selling my information? It's just a little unnerving. I'd like to think that since I document all the sweeps I enter, that I would know if I had entered a contest or not, but I just hate that I have to be on my guard about stuff like this!
Have you tried typing your name or the names you use online in Yahoo or Google to see what comes up? You'd be surprised how the scammers get your name. It's not just from entering contests either.
