Suspicious email from Constant Contact

I deactivated my account earlier this year. A couple of days ago I received a suspicious email from "Your Constant Contact Community" indicating that I have earned a new "kudo" badge. (I don't recall my user name being MarciR866.) Out of an abundance of caution I'm not clicking on any links. Can you please look into this for me? If my account has been hacked I'd like to know immediately. Thank you, Marci Rich

Hi @MarciR37. The email notification you received was to let you know that someone gave a kudo to this post that you made back in 2014. A kudo is awarded when another customer finds your post insightful or useful. When a Community user receives their first kudo, they are awarded with a badge which sends out an email to the email on file for the account, even if it is deactivated. Community logins are separate from a Constant Contact login so there was no login to the deactivated account. Hope this clears it up!
