    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 .
    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.
