So in my email today I got an email from "spellsofmagic" sending me a link to go buy a book at a website called magickpower. I don't know how they got my email address but it clearly isn't from any mods or the owner of this website. Has anyone else gotten anything like this?

We have never sent anyone mail (except for the auto mails for lost password, registrations and so on) and definately never for the purpose of trying to sell someone something.
What was the full email address the mail came from?
SoM is arguably the largest and most well known community site for anything new age / spiritual / occult or pagan related and because we are so large many people do try to take advantage of it, pretending to be us when they are not.
Looking at it more closely on my computer (I was on my phone before) the email clearly didn't come from this website, though the contact name was spellsofmagic. The actual email is firstname.lastname@example.org. I hope someone on the site isn't trying to take advantage of people.
