A Daily Diary: I got a suspicious email. Self Magazine.

I got a suspicious email. Self Magazine.

For starters, my last issue of a long running subscription is on it's way. I woke up this morning to this and I'm not sure if it's real or fake.



When I googled the email, it led to a questions/customer service site on Self.com. There was no indication that anyone received this message when I googled it as well. There are no multiple recipients listed. There is no download required. No payment asked. The links in the email all led to Self Magazines main site. There are no misspellings in the email, although the image (which I pixelled) appears in multiple magazine-related places on Google. 

I've yet to debunk if selfstarters@self.com is real, however. -facepalm- I took the link instead of emailing. This is the most suspicious even in light of other legitimates in the email.

On the change email page, there is this image, which seems legit if googled:


And the unsubscribe email link worked as well.

As does the subscribe/unsubscribe magazine link.

I did do the survey below. The worst I did was send in the mailing address but that could just mean junk mail, and a black and white headshot. They don't have my phone number or income.

I didn't post it but this survey also had the Conde Nast site and copyright (the magazine distributor of SELF at the bottom) which was also legit. So I'm on the fence here.

Mailing list opt-out leads to a One Click Opt Out Servlet

It seemed....okay.


So tell me, has anyone else gotten one of these?

I should just not worry too much. This is petty. I sent an email to customer service and if they'll get back to me, I'll see what they have to say about it. If it's a fake, someone made a seriously good one.
