Justin42 Posted October 4, 2004 Share Posted October 4, 2004 There is a certain website that is sending me a few unsolicited emails a week trying to get me into an advertising deal with them. I'm not even entirely sure where they got my address from, but that's irrelevant. The emails are sent to me from different names, but they all make the "I contacted you last week and haven't heard back so I am writing you again" claim. I reported them to spamcop and got a very nasty email from someone else in their company about how I am being irresponsible and telling me that a "single email of inquiry" is not the same as spam (keep in mind, there is no unsubscribe address, and I have gotten multiple "inquiries"), and how detrimental this is to their business. So, how safe is it to keep reporting them? What could they do? Would spamcop give them information regarding my identity? I stand by my opinion that this is spam, especially given the repetitive nature of it and the fact they try to cover it up with the "I wrote you last week" type of disclaimer (even though it was a different name) I have not responded to their emails because I don't want to give them ANY personal address of mine (even a spamcop address) as I don't know what they're do with it. I think at this point I'll see if I get a further email and if I don't in a few days (responding to my latest report) I'll just block the domain from emailing me and leave it at that. Thanks for any opinions. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
