Gerber Life: Selling Baby Life Insurance to an E-Pended Address?

Gerber Life Insurance Company, an affiliate of the U.S.-based company that makes baby food, has started sending bulk email advertisements to an email address that has been closed for years. This email address had not received any email from Gerber prior to a couple of weeks ago. In addition, the name in the email does not match that of the original owner of the email address, which is usually a reliable sign of an e-pended email address. The ESP is Acxiom Digital.
