Spam Hall of Shame
Here is a collection of the emails we have been sent via our
email@example.com email address. It is only a selection - we receive too many to put them all here.
NOTE: Please don't send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or
you may see it here!
Sarah Williams from Traffic Magnet sent us this email.
I visited WWW.QUARELLA.CO.UK
noticed that you're not listed on some search engines! I
think we can offer you a service which can help you increase traffic
and the number of visitors to your website.
I would like to
introduce you to TrafficMagnet.com
We offer a unique technology that will submit your website to over
300,000 search engines and directories every month.
I would love to hear from you.

Well, thanks for the email Sarah - it was very good of you to take the time to look at our site.
If you'd looked more closely you'd have realised that firstname.lastname@example.org
wasn't the best way to contact us.
The email also contained a nice image of our site - well actually the email only contained a link to the
image, so that when it was displayed by my email software it had to be taken from their server, no doubt
logging the fact that the email they'd used was "valid".
Jane Brooks from Cools Stats sent us this email.
I thought you might be interested in getting in-depth knowledge about your web
audience and web traffic patterns in a reliable and cost-effective way.

We apologize for any inconvenience.
Once again thanks for the email, Jane. "Unfortunately" we already run a detailed stats service of our own
for our customers that host with us. Once again we see the "it's OK to knowingly annoy someone if you
apologise at the same time" approach at the foot of the email.
