    I recently have updated my website to which hosts my portfolio as I'm going into my final year of study. Doing I have set up a work email to get daily job notifications.

    Today I got an email regarding signing up to the Graduate Recruitment Bureau to which I don't remember signing up to and if I had done so it wouldn't have come through to my personal email to which it did.

    Is this a scam or has the company just found my website and signed me up?

    Did it come from a uk.grb.com email address? As long as they haven't asked you to send them personal info you should be fine. Sign up to the website and see what happens.

    The email was [email protected] instead of uk.grb.com

    GRB are a known graduate recruitment agency. It won't be a scam.

    You'd be surprised how they could have got your email. If it's anywhere in the public domain (like LinkedIn) it's fairly easy to find even if you didn't pass it on via any form of subscription system.

    Just found out it was after signing up to Save the Student. I was just bemused to why It had come into that email. It's publicly available but not the one I normally use.

    Is it possible you used the other one to sign up as an exception to the norm, or put it as a secondary email?
