AT&T: Asking a Spamtrap to Sign Up

AT&T is spamming the purest sort of spamtrap — an email address at a domain that has never had a legitimate email address at all — via ESP Cheetahmail (i.e. Experian). AT&T really should confirm opt-ins, or perhaps should prevent its marketing department from purchasing lists?
