Copy paste of a email I just sent to Littleton Coin Co.:

I am getting emails from some third party named 'Shopper Approved' asking questions about my order with your company and waning me to click to confirm I got the order. This looks like a phishing attempt. Are these people sending these out with your knowledge and approval? Looks creepy to me!

Anyone else getting these? It looks as if they are sharing details of my orders with some third party outside consulting firm. I just sent the message to Littleton but don't expect an immediate answer.

They are probably using a third party to gather feed back. Some of the bullion dealers do the same thing. I just ignor them and hit delete.

Yeah probably not worth getting worked up over. It just seems sort of thoughtless. A coin company with customer base many of whom worry about security issues partnering with an outside firm that gets access to a record of what I bought and when.

If I get ANY email that looks remotely strange I dump it

I think about dumping for approximately 1/10th of a second.
