It’s understandable to feel a touch of fear when you receive a scam email that knows your name and home address, because of the lurking question, “Why me?”

The good news, if you can call it that, is that through articles and advisories like this one, you’ll soon see that you aren’t alone, and that the crooks are targeting a much wider group than just you.

Sadly, however, it’s likely that the home addresses they’re using were stolen in one or more data breaches, and then sold on in the computer underground for criminal abuse of this sort.

At least in the UK, many companies that collect addresses put them through some kind of standardisation algorithm to produce address data in the format preferred by the Post Office, so it can be hard to figure out the likely source of the breach.
