    Spam Email with Colt Forum title

    I received an email in my spam folder yesterday supposedly from ColtForum.com.

    it's subject line, "Trending posts from ColtForum.com"
    but when I hover the mouse over the title the real origin comes up

    [email protected]

    I already get enough spam so I didn't open the email because I suspect it's fake.

    2 questions..

    1. is it fake as I suspect?
    2. if it is fake, how did they get my email, are the people that own colt forum selling our emails to spammers?

    yeah thanks, I hastily started this thread then found the linked thread afterwards.
    so I opened that email and opted out.
