I had never purchased from this company before but, I seen them listed as a merchant on this site. I trusted it was safe to purchase from them but, soon after I started receiving malicious emails sent to my primary inbox. Has anyone else experienced this before? I never had a problem with this before and the purchase is the only thing I've made/done different recently.

Malicous or spam emails? There's a difference.

B&H is the largest vendor of camera equipment They are trustworthy.

Spam can be malicious, there’s a difference but they can also be both at the same time.

Is it a rectangle or a square?

E-mails will have a person I know's first and last name but, I know they didn't send it. Sometimes they'll be "reply emails" when I never wrote an initial one.

Hmmmm, have you opened any spam emails lately? Scan your PC with your Anti-Virus, maybe you have malware or something.

Also big companies can be trusted, but that still doesn’t stop them from selling your email address unfortunately. I would just block those spam emails and scan your PC.

I've used B&H many times and have never had a problem. I believe they are trustworthy. It is most likely a coincident that you started getting the spam emails right after your order. You or one of your friends probably got hacked and their contact list stolen.

This company is awesome. No sales tax if you're from anywhere other than NY or NJ. And 2 day shipping to East coast, probably fast elsewhere if you're in the continental US too

Reliable company. Been shopping at their store for 20 years here in NYC. One of the last remaining options of the big photo/electronic stores besides Best Buy in town.
