Nice way to get your details stolen ;D

Remember that stupid camera brought out by Samsung, the one with viewfinder on front as well as back ? They kept pushing it, then disappeared suddenly,. Couldn't imagine anyone stupid enough to buy that. I mention that because I thought this was it.
Decent camera, this one. Didn't get rave reviews I notice, but Samsung cameras do nice pics. My Pixon 12 phone does better pics than my Sony CAMERA !

I see you have had the email too.

Nice of them, dishing out details to third parties in the first place, insecure third parties at that!

Also explains some of the spam I have had already, on an email address that was nice and clean.

I repeatedly asked Play to remove me from their marketing lists, but am still being spammed.

The reason I had to ask them was because the link they provided in emails to do it yourself led to a 'page not found' error. I notified them of that, but nothing was done.

Incompetent, sleazy customer service. Avoid.

Worse than that, a 3rd party marketer they were using has allowed their lists to be stolen!

Yes, I was responding to the first reply in this thread. You have to wonder at the management of the company.

My mate got one for his wife....he was fed up of taking her picture on holiday, as she wants photos all the time. This camera allowed her to do it herself.

I thought what I daft idea, but it allowed him to lay in the sun in peace!

Yeah it a little LCD screen on the front too. It never really caught on but it was a great idea for all those vain people that constantly take pictures of themselves posing for Facebook.
