In the past week or so I am receiving multiple Eventbrite confirmations for US political events, all of them Republican rallies or events on topics on their agenda. People are trolling such events by registering large numbers of fake attendees. And now they’re using my e-mail addresses listed on this site to do so. Likely because they appear in some online dump of known e-mail addresses to spam. All events are events listed on Eventbrite (for which I never used those addresses myself).

After a few registrations I deleted from my e-mail inbox without looking at them in detail (one was for a policing conference in LA or some such), I started collecting some screenshots.

I claimed the mail addresses today on Eventbrite and deleted the orders.
