LeeRyder Posted February 2, 2006 Share Posted February 2, 2006 A few days ago I reported "spam" coming from Monster.com's affiliate MilitaryResumes. As normal, I reported to SC, and just a few minutes ago got a reply. The following is the 3 email convo that rectified the situation. (edited emails out for the "spammers" privacy) To: 1641199881[at]reports.spamcop.net Subject: Spamcop report id:1641199881 Date: Wed, 1 Feb 2006 19:56:06 -0500 Hello SpamCop user, MilitaryResumes.com subscribes to both Monster.com and Careerbuilder.com. We pay them full price to be a recruiter on their website. Since you have placed your resume there looking for a job, and we are a paying employer/recruiter with those firms, we have the right to send you emails about job opportunities (we have over 5,000 jobs on our website). If you'd like to discuss this, please feel free to call me.

You have the right to show your ads on their site, I have have the right to opt out of any 2nd and 3rd party email messages, which I elected to do. Shall I escalate this to Monster.com themselves? Sincerely, LSK Lee, You are correct. We apologize for the spam. I was not aware that you had opted out and we should have honored that. I will make sure that our salespeople pay attention to this more carefully in the future. Sincerely, Chief Technology Officer MilitaryResumes.com Needless to say, I am VERY impressed with this guy. So much so that I re-emailed him to apologise for giving him my "pat" generic spammer reply. Ive seen spamcop work and it is awesome to see their sights get listed and go down... but it's nice to see people like this who work hard to keep it legit Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
