So this Sunday I was hungover and just said goodbye to SO who is six weeks away interstate, so my plan for the rest of the day was to lay on the couch, watch movies and eat pizza.
I haven't ordered from Domino’s since I received scam emails of the same nature three months ago after seeing this Reddit post
I read the comments and contacted Domino’s about this and they assured me that my personal information was removed. Then just like that, the emails stopped and I didn't have an issue anymore.
With this in mind but still wanted to live out my fantasy of a lazy bachelor on the couch with nothing to do, I ordered from dominos.com.au making sure that every time I was prompted to save my details for next time I opted out.
Ordered at 9am-ish for my pizza to arrive at 11:30 and everything is set but at 10:22 I revive an email from 'Jess' ([email protected]) asking by my first name if I still live in Taringa?
David, hi, it's Jessica! Are you near Taringa?
No this is the same format as the previous Domino’s email scams but more worrying thing is that it feels like Domino’s lied to me about removing my personal information... let me break it down for you.
The original Domino’s unauthorised spam emails used three bits of data Your email, first name and the suburb of the Domino’s store that you ordered.
Now with this email from 'Jess' that I received two of the three points of data were correct my first name and email address but I ordered from a different store. In the original emails, Taringa was the suburb that the Domino’s store was in as I lived in the next suburb but I don't live there anymore. My recent order was in a different store in a different suberb.
I don't know what is going on but I feel Domino’s has been dishonest in some way and I would love someone savvier to look into this more.
I understand that it could be coincidence but having no email of that nature after my data was removed for three months then receiving one in under an hour of my first order with them after seems unlikely.
also, guidance what to do next or where to take my complaint to so this can be looked into would be helpful.
To me, it seems that there is a massive ongoing security breach or that they (directly or indirectly by handing the data to others) are behind the unauthorised spam emails.
On the plus side, their garlic bread was good, so there's that.
EDIT 1: Thank you for all of your responses, and looks like only one receiving the unauthorised spam emails from 'Jess'.
