Anyone else get spammed by BigwheelOnline DVD?

I just got a random e-mail today from BigWheelOnline DVD, saying they are now open for business. Funny thing is I have never heard of this site before, nor signed up to be on their mailing list at anytime.

I have a sneaking suspicion they are grabbing e-mail addresses off of DVDtalk. Anyone else get a similar e-mail?

I too got an email from then today. Never heard of them b4. They might get lists from any retailer that you order DVDs from, not necesarily DVDTalk. Prices a little high.

Why would another retailer give competition lists of their customers? Does not make sense to me, nor to mention is it allowable from the terms of use on the e-tailers that I use.

Also the message was just plain typed text, no graphics, animation , etc.

Looks very amateur and makes me wonder even more.
