I am not sure.. I guess, copy-paste rule of emai posting does/might not apply to junk& spam emails....

<snip>Database of Google advertisers on sale... </snip>

I doubt that these people were able to get into Google's DB and get all the emails, however what is a strong possibility is.. they used automated search tool at Google and spider the sites doing ads.. but it would be still interesting to know how many email sets are they gonna sell.

Do not believe anything you receive as spam. Mostly it's just lies, but even if it's not, the source is about as unreliable as you can get - anonymous AND criminal (or at least unethical, depending on jurisdiction).

It was this same spam email that I was refering to in this thread

[webmasterworld.com...]

They certainly did not get their facts right, attributing an aparent Overture statement to Google

So what? We all get spam every day trying to sell addresses from consumers, companies whatever.
Do you ever believe anything coming to you as spam mail?
Just because it claims being Google related doesn't make it any different in my book.
