Being Spammed, Big Time, for FileMaker "Leads"

I am receiving lots of spam e-mail messages offering to sell me "leads" of registered FileMaker users. They come from different e-mail addresses each time, all of which appear to be bogus. (If you reply, asking them to take your name off their list, your request bounces back).

 

The only copies of FileMaker I license are those I get by being an FBA member. So, these people appear to have either gotten a hold of FileMaker's records of these sales or its database of registered users. (Though, of course, if the leads they are offering to sell could also be bogus).

 

It seems to me that FMI should be doing something about this, to protect the privacy of its customers and developers like me who allow our business contact information to be published on its web site.
