Hi there ... I'm looking for your thoughts & wisdom on this.
In the last two weeks, I've seen a bunch of emails with the same Subject and Body Text .. only the email addresses change.
The Subject is always "Data Removal Request"
The Body Text is always
"I hereby withdraw my consent for you to collect, process or store any personal data related to email@example.com
I request that you delete any and all data related to, and belonging to firstname.lastname@example.org that your company stores, pursuant to my rights under Article 17 GDPR.
These requests have covered emails from a variety of free email providers, gmail.com, gmail.fr, hotmail.com ... which makes me think there is a system or service out there generating these emails on behalf of individuals ... possibly for a nominal fee 🙂
Of the 20 or so emails we've seen, only a handful of the emails are actually customers / users of our service ... which makes me think the system or service sending these emails is generating mailshots and firing them out to a range of service providers like my company
Anyone else seen this?
I'm going to work through the email headers to see if there are any clues ... but I thought it was worth posting here in case anyone else is in the same position as me 🙂
