Anyone get a spam email from quicklink.co.nz today, which is a piece of New
Zealand Spam. I have received several of these emails to seperate email
addresses. From there email it appears that I am on their email mailing
list, yet I haven't signed up.

Yup, received one too.

And to my personal work email address, that is not on any website etc,
but that has received a huge amount of SPAM over the last few weeks.

I have asked them to furnish details as to where they obtained my
email address, so I can take action against the filth that are selling
the spam list.

Under the Privacy Act, I have the right to access and have changed any
details any organisation holds about me, so, as a starting point, I'll
have them update my email address to http://www.velocityreviews.com/forums/(E-Mail Removed).
Have also discussed with my solicitor, who believes that there could
be a civil case for them to answer if I can prove that the address was
obtained illegitimately, and that, as a result of their actions, I
have incurred cost (which I have - with full speed Jetstream under
Telecom's monopoly we're paying a fortune to receive their spam).

If there's any way, shape or form we can take legal action against the
organisation selling our details, we will.
