I understand this is specific to gmail and Paypal cannot blindly ignore periods.
However, I'm now having that issue as someone tried to create an account with a variance of my gmail account and now I'm being spammed by Paypal. Paypal is sending marketing e-mails to that account - which happens to be mine - without a consent/permission.
I've never pressed the "Confirm my e-mail" button on Paypal's first e-mail.
Isn't Paypal breaking anti-spam laws and regulations?
Shouldn't Paypal only send marketing e-mails to verified accounts?
