4 comments on “Dropbox Invitation Scam Spam Today

  1. My partner got three copies of this email but what concerns me is that it happened just after I installed Dropbox on my old XP netbook. The only place they could have got the email address was from an email in the Outlook inbox or sentbox, it wasn’t even in the address book.

    • The email reception after installing Dropbox might be a cause, but more likely is that someone your partner sent an email to was already infected. My Dropbox email address has never gotten spam because I only use it for dropbox email reception.
      Dropbox makes their money by storing the data from people with premium accounts. If they started selling customer’s email addresses they would probably lose more business, and money that a premium account would generate than they could get for selling or trading that address.
