Receiving spam emails even though I purchased privacy?

Why did I pay for privacy when I'm getting spam about two domains anyway??

 

--------------------

 

Congratulations on registering your domain xxx ! The next step you can do for xxx  is to make sure it is listed in the search engines. Getting xxx  included in the search engines is the first step you should take as a new webmaster or domain owner. .

To list xxx  in Google, Bing, and Yahoo follow the link below:

Please register xxx  as soon as possible so your new domain is properly indexed.

 

--------------------

 

This was sent to the email I have on file with GoDaddy.

 

Someone please explain to me why/how this is happening?

@lukemason More than likely its because email sent to the privacy address such as yourdomain@domainsbyproxy.com is automatically forwarded to your regular email address. I believe you can manage how those emails are handled within your account as well.
