Burt’s Bees: Now Spamming a Spamtrap Near Me….

Burt’s Bees, a popular U.S.-based natural cosmetics manufacturing company, is now sending bulk emails to a spamtrap that it allegedly updated via the opt-out FreshAddress service several weeks ago. Despite this futile and pointless attempt to turn an opt-out email address into an opt-in email address, their email still hit one of my spamtraps. It will likely hit several others when the rest of the list is mailed. The ESP is Responsys.
