    This showed up in my inbox earlier today. I don't remember hearing about the company before.

    Anyone here know if it is a legitimate company and if the advertised View attachment 239793 "sale" is real?

    Being paranoid by nature I don't want to click on the link in the original email until I know it is for real.

    I got the same e-mail on 08/01/2017. No clue.... I think I ran across their website a couple weeks ago looking for coat hanger hooks, but almost 100% positive I would not have signed-up for anything.

    I got the same email yesterday, and I've seen a few others from same company in past few months, though I've never visited their site or directly signed up for their emails. I assume I got on their mailing list by signing up for or buying some other Tesla-related thing in past

    Only if the "some other Tesla-related thing" sold their mailing list, which I doubt they would do for a competitor. More likely they bought state DMV records.

    That makes sense. In my case they spammed a one-off email address that I've only ever used with Tesla. So it's easy to update my Tesla info and then blacklist the compromised address ;)

    except in my case, I'm in Canada and there are privacy laws that in theory should prevent that for gov't agencies - but regardless our local motor vehicle dept doesn't have my email address anyhow. Meanwhile I do use the particular email address for telsa.com correspondence and mytesla account, plus a couple other EV related things (Chargepoint etc)

    I got it also. Wouldn't be surprised if Chargepoint sold my name to them since I just recently signed up for it.

    I think I can assure you on that point. I'm using a different one-off email address with chargepoint.

    Thanks. I have ChargePoint and I never got the referenced email so it clearly wasn't you.

    I'm pretty sure I was scammed by this website. I bought floor mats for the Model X. It's been a month and I have not received anything, nor have I received any correspondence. My e-mails have gone unreturned, and there is nobody I can call. I've request a refund from Paypal and keeping my fingers crossed. I obviously suggest against ordering from this vendor.

    Update: I received my Lloyd Floor mats that I purchased from EV Everything, so I can't say it is a scam. It is a legitimate operation. I'm pretty disappointed with the product, the delivery time, and the customer service from this site, so I still wouldn't recommend shopping there.
