New Email from new Olympus company


I received an email yesterday from (or purporting to have come from) the new Olympus company and I assume that it did, but it contains nonsense and reads poorly.

It contains phrases such as....

Quote:Your rental has been confirmed successfully.

I've made no such request!

Presumably this message is an error but it's done nothing to build my confidence in the new operation!

Has anyone else had rogue messages from Olympus?

Thanks for making the membership aware of this...

Delete as spam and block the sender...whenever changes occur to large international companies, which conceivably could lead to new customer terms of use, etc., then there are bound to be spammers who attempt to exploit the situation.

I received this email but with a different number. It also had my name on it.

I think the number might be a date and time. Possibly the date that I signed up for their newsletter.

I have had exactly the same email. Likewise I have made no such request!!!

The email address is a correct Olympus EU one. Appears to me to be part of the transfer of product registrations etc to OM Digital Solutions. Presumably the original Japanese has been somewhat mangled in translation. As an Oly user I have no concerns.

Yes, I had it too. I'm waiting to see when my EM1X and PRO lens will arrive!

I had this today. I emailed Olympus after checking their address (not replying to the email). They came back very swiftly, confirming it was a test email sent out in error and apologising.

They were Transferring over to the New Company and did a TEST that backfired. The test went out to Everyone on their list in ERROR!..
Stop Worrying. Mind You, it would be nice to test out some of their gear for Free..
