Weird MSA-related email

Hey y’all,

I’ve been a lurker here for a while. This morning I received two strange MSA-related emails. Here’s a screenshot of them both:

Has anyone else gotten these, or anything like them? I’m obviously not going to respond to them or click on anything, they’re just really strange!


Yes! I got a couple a while ago and posted about it in the forum too.

My main concern is how did some company/person/spammer associate my email with MSA. There is no public link between the two – I’ve only ever used my address when signing up here. It makes me think my information was stolen from or sold by MSA.

Here’s a link to the post I made in February:

I haven’t gotten any emails like this, but I do think there was a sale of our data since I started getting a lot of Factor 75 and other sub related emails. I’ve never used them or any other meal subs and the Factor emails look legit and not spam. I know the company is an advertiser here.

I have been getting a lot of the same advertisements for Factor, Hello Fresh, etc…
