Spammers steal e-mail addresses from Orbitz

I believe I was the first person to notify Orbitz that someone at their company had stolen information, because an account I only use for Orbitz started receiving spam. At first, their privacy team monkeys would only send me canned responses, but I actually got a response back from someone real after notifying TrustE. Frankly, my experience with TrustE in the past has been crappy as well, so I wasn't expecting anything. Figured I just end up closing the account and starting over. So far, I'm impressed with the reaction, but I suspect that nothing will come of this.


  • Last post

    I don't plan to delete my LJ (I paid for permanent status, dammit), but this will be the last post. I don't plan to read it anymore, either…

  • Unemployed

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

  • Home from the cruise, off to Sunnyvale

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
