My public profile - doesn't have my name nor the AMT number on it.
Please explain how when I wrote via the AMT "contact requester" I get a email that says

Hello, (MY NAME),

(TEXT BODY)

JFC, if she knows my first name then she probably has all info on me, correct?

I have everything on amazon.com profile set to private. How did she know my first name? Probably know my last name also.

Oh, I did not know that. Hmm, so never write to a requester then if want to stay anonymous! Thank you for the quick reply. You have been very helpful.
