    Per an old Pinstadium email I recv'd, Pinstadium became an official partner w/ IFPA probably in late 2018 or early 2019.
    I'm fairly confident that IFPA provided Pinstadium w/ email addresses of pinball players.

    Looks like I started recv-ing Pinballstar emails around Oct 2018.
    Not sure if they got my email addr from IFPA or JJP or elsewhere. ??

    The last JJP email I recv'd was in early Dec 2017.

    Quoted from Whysnow:

    yeah, 100% IFPA
    They started requiring an email a few years ago to be eligible for certain events.
    Anyone getting this spam likely played in any IFPA event and provided your email (easy to not even realize what they will do with it)

    With refusenik's like you costing them $$$ by skipping IFPA events over the $1 fee, they had to do something to fill their coffers.

    I have to think it is actually Pinball Expo that had and sold the list. I have a customer that is not on pinside or ifpa, but he did sign up and go to expo last year (2018) and since then has received emails from Pinball Star. Each time he receives it forwards it to me asking how these people got his email. That is the only thing that we could come up with because that was the only event he went to. He doesn't look up pinball anything, just relies on me to keep him "up to date."

    Quoted from Dent00:

    Hiding the fact that they INTEND on selling your personal information in T&C's and not allowing you access to their website without checking the box that says "Agree" is the way most companies avoid actually justifying release of all your personal information. They just show that you clicked the box and they have your permission. It should be illegal to deceive people like that and everyone knows it.

    Any site that does that is not worth going to. That is why im not on Facebook or any of the other social engineering sites.

    Got Puke-stadium spam email today.
    I'll make sure to spend the rest of my pinball days letting people know what an overpriced joke the product is.
    Hope that's what their intent was.

    (make sure to also use gmail's 'report spam/phishing' feature when you get it)

    EDIT: I don't think IFPA was the email list source, the email it came to is not the one registered with IFPA.

    I get Pinball Star emails and have never been to his website or emailed him.

    Now I have email GAP , and get regular updates when new games arrive.
