January 16th, 2013, 04:44 PM #1emdb.us is using stolen CJ data
I received another spam email to an address ONLY used for Commission Junction, it belongs to someone unassociated with CJ and they appear to be using stolen data (probably from a merchant) If they're using stolen CJ data for *this* spam then they are probably selling the same stolen data on.

I can find these other domains connected with this scam:
I don't know what CJ can do about this, as this particular bunch of scammers are offshore and hidden behind fake registration details. Nonetheless, they appear to be using email addresses stolen either indirectly or directly from CJ which is certainly not a good thing..
