Every time I sign up for a new account I use a unique email address that goes to a catchall email account. Received an advertisement email from Netflix using the unique 123RF address. So looks like 123RF is selling our data. Or maybe hacked?

They were hacked last year. 8 Million+ people's data stolen.

Seems like Netflix is buying hacked lists

They don't necessarily  know the lists were hacked. Made in Eastern Europe, well packed in sold to western countries, like any other product. In Easter country we can produce spam legally, it is still not regulated by the law.

many companies sell email lists, for some 'free' services & apps it's their main income.  all depends on the TOS when you sign up - how many folk read that boilerplate?

like Paulie, i use dummy emails, so anything that ends up there can just be deleted in bulk
