    Got this email today.

    Now, it's not my credit card, but the name and email address were correct.

    This seems like marketing to me. Like there was a mistake made somewhere in the billing process, but you should come check us out with this username and password and if you try to upgrade services we'll say the card was declined, get you to put in your own card, etc.

    Just weird. Anyone else ever get anything like this?

    They're phishing (right term?), don't click on any links because that will confirm you're a real person. They probably bought your name/email in a list and are searching for real people.

    The fact they think someone would pay for porn is hilarious. But that is fuckin creepy.

    The only way this could have happened for real is if someone put in their own credit card info and put my email in the field, which is stupid... The only worry is that someone used my email to use a stolen credit card, but that's ridiculous too because they won't get their username and password.

    Oh well, free username and password to anyone who wants to mess with it.

    I bet the CC was fake, and they entered it to make people panic and call them.

    I wouldn't doubt it, and I wouldn't doubt people fall for it all the time.

    Of course it's a scam. And Bangbros is behind it.
