Last week, while I was wandering from link to link in the Internet, I found a site for opt-in mail marketing. The site was about list building and internet marketing strategies claiming they would tech advanced techniques to advanced marketers. I opened a spare e-mail account from my web server. I always do this because it is easier to open an e-mail account than changing your old mail address and also to see the impact of giving my e-mail address to another online marketer. I use a unique e-mail address for every submission so that I can find out what that particular marketer does with my e-mail. I saw all kinds of marketers and their tricks but this one was different. He was a real monster.
Two days later I was receiving mails about prescription drugs “from the US”, how to build my abs and other parts of my body, how to lose weight, how to gain weight, how a distant relative died and left me millions of dollars, how to live longer with detox diets, how to make money sitting on my back and all the other subjects a very imaginative person can think of. And unbelievably, it took only two days.
I went back to the site and found a communication form. I wrote that I was not interested in the information on the site but I would be happy to receive the e-mail list the owner of the site built. Half an hour later he fell to my trap; and he sent me an e-mail about his own online marketing business.
I wrote him back telling what I was interested in. After receiving the information I saw that he was not living in the US. So I used all my knowledge and experience, found most of his domains and registration e-mails, and harvested all the e-mails on his sites.
Now it was time for pay back and a list building lesson. I forwarded all of the accumulated spam messages in my mailboxes to all of his addresses. Revenge is sweet served cold or hot.
