Topic # 113833 29-Jan-2013 15:30 Send private message

a few years ago I had an italk number with slingshot and set up voice-mail to send to my email account.

I closed my slingshot account about two or three years ago as I moved overseas.

It seems slingshot have now assigned my old italk number to a new customer. That person has set up their own voice-mail box BUT it seems the italk system has remembered my email address associated with that phone number.
Now every time that person gets a voice-mail message it gets emailed to me.

I'd think this is a fairly serious breach of that customers privacy.

I'm not living in NZ so I'm not in a position to call slingshot about it but if a Slingshot rep in these forums wants to PM me I'll give you the phone number in question so you can see if you can get it fixed up.
