Spam/Unwanted email from Pingo.com "Marketing Assistant"

Please beware. Anyone who mines your email address and then sends you unsolicited and impersonal emails using a @gmail.com for a reputable company that has a domain(Pingo.com) is definitely not worth doing business with. It's not a scam but someone has obviously resorted to SPAM to market its products. Please brands, it's not wrong to mine contact addresses, but what you do after the mining matters. Send proper emails to pitch your products instead of creating fake profiles. Doesn't work for me, sorry.
