This is the second such message in a week, It looks pretty fishy, thought you guys should know about it, I changed the links so no one can click them on accident.

I did JUST get an email with the #1 overall driver of 2014. Seems a little out of place being over a year old now? Can any of the spies confirm that this was supposed to be sent out or maybe theres a problem?

That is interesting.  Do you mind forwarding that email to me to contact@mygolfspy.com.  Want to make sure other people are not still getting that email. Thanks for letting me know.

I almost posted this as well but it linked to an MGS article so I was like hmm...  I have gotten a few from an account that says just golfspy and not MyGolfSpy

Not sure I understand you RB.  You have to be aware at this point that this is legit and from us.  Our readers said they wanted this so I went out and did it for them.  How is spam a golf email that helps you save money on golf equipment.

I certainly appreciate it, I think the confusion comes in the format of the email.  The link doesn't say where it's going to, and we have been trained not to click on random links in this day and age.

 

mygolfspyrss@aweber.com; on behalf of; GolfSpy as a from address also makes it look different than than the typical MGS email.

 

Nothing wrong with it and I want to say thank you for finding deals for us.  Adding in an official MGS logo and maybe Global Golf logo would help cut down on the confusion.

The emails always used to say MyGolfSpy in the from field(not GolfSpy) and also used to all have a Carlsbad address at the bottom. That's why I posted anything. I don't click links in emails I have questions about when they come in. That's why I posted here for clarification.
