Q. I’ve received multiples of emails from Westfair Online. How do I make them stop?

A. Our systems are designed to send a single email for every product you are signed-up to receive. If you are seeing multiples of the same email, this could be caused by a malfunction on your company’s (or ISP’s) email server. Check first with your IT/Technical Support group to see if they can reconcile the situation. It is also important to realize that just because an email shows that it is from Westfair Online, it doesn’t mean it was actually sent to you by Westfair Online. Many email marketing groups participate in what is referred to as “spoofing”, where a random email address is chosen as their “from address”. It is also possible that the email is a virus sent by an infected machine. Viruses will also spoof the “from” address using variations from the infected machine’s address book. Check with your IT/Technical Support group if you are concerned about a virus, or SPAM. Also note: If you have set up multiple online accounts with Westfair Online, make sure you are not signed up to receive the same email newsletters to each account.
