    Just received another pogo email to my game email with my game acct name.
    Something needs to be done about this as it's not acceptable

    Don't care. If I had gotten one I didn't notice. Probably ended up in my spam if I did get it anyways. Did receive one months back but it was asking for an account to a game I was never registered to, lol. Just delete them. Not like anythings is going to happen unless you're dumb enough to make a real reply to those.

    The two of you responding with "delete them" obviously have not grasped what is going on here. Our UO account login IDs are being transmitted in the subject line of plain text emails. Every server that routes that email between the sender and receiver will have full view of both your login ID and the associated email account address. This makes it extremely easy for hackers to take your account. You can do everything as safe and secure as possible, but with that much info out there you could very easily lose your account.

    Here's what I did
    Login to EA
    update contact options
    uncheck:
    Contact me about EA's products & news
    Share my information with select EA partners
    <Not always the best thing way to keep it, in case of promotions>
    (maybe just the bottom one might be better?)

    Seems like they violated their own privacy policy - to provide
    "reasonable means to protect your personal information," they took it and & gave it to a 3rd party.
    Account name In the subject line doesn't sound reasonable. Makes me feel differently now about 3rd party apps, scripters, and other policy violators.

    questions regarding this: privacyadmin.ea.com

    Yes, like the hackers trying to get my non-existent accounts for games I never played. Never once has any phishing email ever mentioned anything about UO or Mythic. But whatever. Can always change your email account and change the settings as previously posted before me.

    This was not a phishing email. This was a legitimate email from EA. Damn you're dense.

    Doing that also prevents you from getting any emails on beta opportunities, should you wish to get in on them. But I do agree that this will cut it down if not out.

    Un-checking both items doesn't stop the emails.After clicking the Un-Subscribe link, now I'm just waiting... after that, I'll mark them as a phishing scam
