UEI College: Recruiting a Spamtrap as a Student?

UEI College, a career/trade school with campuses across the United States and in Canada, is sending bulk email to a long-closed email address. The email states that, “You recently registered with a network website to receive special online offers.” This is not true for any reasonable definition of “recently”. This email address has been closed since 2008. Either UEI College accepts unverified subscriptions and somebody typoed an email address and domain, or UEI College purchased a list. This statement appears in a great deal of bulk email sent by ESP Yesmail. I wonder why, when it has so obviously not been true for emails sent to my spamtraps.
