  • SPAM?: Free Apps & Exclusive Website Features To All Flightradar24 Data Feeders

    The above is the subject of a spam mail i got. At least i assume it's spam.
    I use a seperate email account for where ever i go, so if this is not from fl24, your server(s) got compromised.

    It contents:

    from: Flightradar24 <support@fr24.com> via mail52.us1.mcsv.net
    reply-to: Flightradar24 <support@fr24.com>
    to: flightradar24@<my mail domain>

    Dear Flightradar24 data feeder,

    My name is Fredrik Lindahl and Iím the CEO of Flightradar24.

    First of all, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for feeding data to our ADS-B network. Flightradar24 would not exist today without the support from the likes of you.

    To show our gratitude, we have created Flightradar24 Premium and made it available for free to all of our active data feeders. Flightradar24 Premium includes exclusive website features such as a radar view, bookmarks functionality, ability to view the map in full-screen mode without ads and time-outs. Youíll also get access to our smartphone apps for free!

    Find out more about Flightradar24 Premium and create your account here:

    flightradar24.us5.list-manage.com/track/click?u=5e1646d34152669156ed50339&id=812c677aa7&e= 198b34f735

    Please note that Flightradar24 Premium is only available for free to ADS-B receiver owners who feed data regularly to the Flightradar24 network. Your Premium account remains active for 7 days after your last feed. If you have to stop feeding for more than 7 days, your Premium account will automatically be reactivated as soon as you start feeding data again.

    If you are currently not feeding data to Flightradar24 and would like to get started again, please check out:

    flightradar24.us5.list-manage.com/track/click?u=5e1646d34152669156ed50339&id=e3f16643d1&e= 198b34f735

    Your existing sharing key will work with our latest feeder software. If youíve not made a note of the key, please contact support@fr24.com and confirm your feeder alias and associated email address.

    Best regards,
    Fredrik

    It's not spam but an email to people who have feeded FR24 but are not feeding any more to tell them about the improved premium service.

    Sorry if I ask, but what made you think it's spam?

      Well

      a) It arrived in the Google Mail Spambox
      b) "from: Flightradar24 <support@fr24.com> via mail52.us1.mcsv.net", all other mails from fl24 came directly from @flightradar24.com (like the forum notifications)

      Thanks for clearing it up.

        mail52.us1.mcsv.net is some kind of newsletter service. When sending bulk mail it's easier to use some kind of newsletter service. In this case I think it's Mailchimp.
