Toyota claims woman "opted in" for email stalking

Anonymous Coward writes | more than 4 years ago

An anonymous reader writes "ABC News is reporting that a California woman is suing Toyota for $10 million for sending her email that appeared to be from a criminal stalker. The woman claims the emails terrified her to the point that she suffered sleeplessness, poor work performance, etc. Toyota says the ruse was part of a marketing campaign for the Toyota Matrix. A Toyota spokesman says they are not liable for the woman's distress, because "The person who made this claim specifically opted in, granting her permission to receive campaign emails and other communications from Toyota.""

opt-in != Lying (1)

Just because you opt in to a marketing campaign doesn't mean you condone lying and misrepresentation. A fake MySpace page is valid grounds for fraud.
