runintocash Posted December 3, 2007 Share Posted December 3, 2007 Hi all, I don't know if this is the right forum to post in, if not my apologies. I am the owner of a website and I just received the below email. This person pretty much stated that if I don't not pay him $50 he will spam people on my behalf that he knows will report me and get my site suspended by my hosting provider. I came here because they mentioned your site by name in the email. Below is the email that I received: Hello admin, First, I must tell you that I know that your program is scam. But, I don't care as long as you are ready to cooperate with me. Well, This is my offer: I have list of a few thousands fresh emails of HYIP users, which I extracted from different hyips in last few months (profx.biz, binor.ru, hk-fund.com, successfuture.biz, tradeinforex.net, timesprofit.net, arivafund.com, etc...) Price: $50 ONLY! You can use this emails to promote your own program. Just imagine how great this offer is and how many investors you can get! You have two options. First option is to decide to cooperate with me and buy email lists from me. Second option, which I don't like, and I belive you will not like it either: I have emails of about 150 thousands emails of SpamCop members. SpamCop is spam fighting tool. Well, all this people hate spam and they report every spam mail to SpamCop. SpamCop automatiocaly reports every link from spam mail to hosting provider which hosts it's site. What it means? Well, if I "promote" (spam) that people with your site address in message body, they will report you, and your hosting provider will receive thousands of spam complaints. They will be forced to shut down your site! I don't like second option. First is much better for both of us. But if you refuse me offer, I will be forced to move to the second option. So, I hope that you will chose what is better... If you don't reply within 24 hours, I will understand it as refuse and I will start working on 'second option'. Regards, Ognjen As proof that I'm serious I'm sending you list of all active investors of arivafund.com. Also, please check their threads on forums like MMG to see what demage I made them. Is this guy for real? Is there any way that I can prevent this person from doing this? Any input or advice is appreciated. Thanks, Mike Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
