    A heads up to anyone using Fine Art America. I create a unique email address for every site or service I use online. This way, when there is a breach or sudden spam to one of the addresses, I know which site/service was responsible.

    I received the following message to the address I used to sign up with Fine Art America several years ago. I have not used the service in years and have not received an email from them since. I also have not shared the email address I used for my account there with anyone else, it was a unique one that was only in Fine Art America's system.

    This is the text of the email:

    The email itself should raise red flags, but the fact that it was sent to an email address that was only used with Fine Art America's system means that their user data may have been compromised.
