Angry SPAM mails from RCUniverse ??

Hi,
I'm wondering if anybody else get this SPAM mails containing junk not related to RC, from what appears to be from RCUniverse?
The mails contains links to quack sites where all remedies supposedly can be healed.
I suspect maybe my email have ended up on some spam list since the mails seem to originate from [email protected] but they contain the RCUniverse logos etc.
/Erland.

You aren't on an external spam list

Click unsubscribe and you will quit getting them.

This is the cost of a "free" site

Yep! Just click unsubscribe. This won't remove you from getting any subscriptions, password resets, etc.

Will do. Thanks!
Was just a bit suspicious since the mail did not originate from the rcuniverse.com domain.

The Index showing me as the last poster to a thread but the thread itself shows no sign of my post? See directly above.

I am really surprised of the types of SPAM emails I've been receiving.... Fat burning type of nonsense??? So now since I have unsubscribed I will not get any r/c type of newsletter from you either?

Very sad that RCU has gone this route.

Yep, I just did as well so I guess it's not that big of a deal then but still surprised RCU went this route.

If you notice on the footer of the site, Copyright 2018 MH Sub I, LLC dba Internet Brands and Advertise the Advertise link goes to internetbrands dot com /travel/contact/
The spam emails about weight loss and fat burners were from <[email protected]>

My newsletter emails from them dating back to 2012 were from <[email protected]>

They've just gone scummy or crossed their marketing streams...
Time will tell.
