Unauthorized use of my email

Unauthorized use of my email

Someone is trying to use my secondary private proxy email address to create an account with Dropbox. I just got a conformation request in my main email inbox.

 

Yesterday the same happened in 1Password, same email was used in the same way, and I emailed 1Password to delete the account. 

 

I need to contact dropbox support to inform them about the impersonation.  How do I do that?

The easiest thing to do is just request a reset on the email address at www.dropbox.com/forgot, log in to the account and then delete it yourself.

Thanks Mark!

I was initially apprehensive to engage but what you said makes perfect sense.

I did as you suggested and will do so for every such successive “attack” attempt, pathetic though they are.
