Why does StuffAlert include your name, email address and username in emails?

People who send spoof emails generally don't have your first and last name as well as your StuffAlert username and email address. So sending an email that contains this information should increase your confidence that it was sent by us.

There may still be instances where spoof emails do contain your first and last name as well as your StuffAlert username, so inclusion of this information doesn’t necessarily guarantee that the email is from us.

However, by us including these details it does significantly increase the level of certainty that this originated from StuffAlert. If this information in not included, you should exercise extra caution.

If you do have any concerns as to the authenticity of any email we (StuffAlert) send to you, please use the Contact Us form within the site to get in touch on these matters.
