I just received an email to my personal adress promoting Tapatalk !
It says someone (coded) is following me on tapatalk.

The bottom of the note says I received the email because I am a tapatalk member or logged to a website via tapatalk.

I AM NOT A TAPATALK MEMBER AND NEVER USED THEIR SERVICES AS FAR AS I KNOW !
I am using an iPad and my mobile is generally off (I rarely use it to call home when I am away) and I never use it to acces the web.

This forum is the only place I go where I see tapatalk used by other members.

So, it seems to me there is a security issue somewhere around this site...

Could just be a spam or phishing email.
I though about these, but it came through my (coded)@icloud mail I use here...

Unless iCloud allowed them to use their client's list... but the bottom note mentioned my email.
So they do have it.

I almost never receive spam or phising email from places I do not visit, so it remains suspicious to me.

Was there a link where you could go login to your (non-existant) tapatalk account? If so, it was a phishing scam.
Also, if it really was from tapatalk, they would know that you are not a member and no one can 'follow you on tapatalk'.

I'm going to send you my email address. Can you forward the Tapatalk email there so I can take a look at it?

Hi Kevin.

I will be glad to forward the message to you.... Sent.

I think jb welder is right... but the message looks like a good ad...
Fortunately, I cautiously did not connect with any address the message indicated... nor did I send any email there.

***Add on : Kevin thinks the message was actually from tapatalk... He suggested a transcription error of a similar email address...
Case closed for me.
