Why?




Got this in my inbox today (do click on it to enlarge it). Begs the question, why? Why me?

I just don't understand. Nothing about me, my company, or any company I've ever worked for is the slightest bit related to insurance or solicitors, or 0800NoWinNoFee, or even Nigerian Insurance scams. A google search of me will show I'm as far removed from these industries as anyone can be. Nothing in my email address would lead to any confusion. So all I can think is Alan.Lawson@HSBF.com is a complete and utter arse.

The email includes a phone number, so I called it, you get a number of choices all of which end up on an answerphone, although for all intents and purposes it would appear to be a proper company. Feel free to ring him if you like. 0870 760 6321. if you do, please tell him HE PISSED ME OFF, THE BASTARD

Ah, the enigmatic Alan Lawson has a colleague, Steve Johnson.

I had emails from this lot on 9th March, after when they changed their whois record to be US based.

My blog shows the amusement Mr Lawson caused. But he's famous now.

I enjoyed his answerphone, too. Spam for sure. Scam? Who can say. I hope someone does.

Nice one Tim. Whatever is going on this bloke really is a pain in the fucking arse to all of us.

Everyone else, if you have the time go to Tim's blog check out the details and spam the bastard

The Big Man said...

I have a few examples on my blog of HSBF and their wonderful link domain offers. How does he get away with it and who is taken in by these emails? I suppose someone must be, otherwise what is the point of sending the spam out?

By the way, I love this blog!

Cheer up you silly sod. I've given you a wonderful testimonial here

Don't forget his other colleague:

Dear Sirs,

We are selling the domain name DrivewayPaving.co.uk. This is the very first time since its initial registration in 1996 that this important domain has ever been available on the open market. The domain is currently on sale for just £495+ VAT.

Savvy players such as B&Q with their diy.com, British Gas with their gas.co.uk or Lloyds TSB with their insurance.co.uk domains have for many years reaped enormous rewards and marketing kudos from owning THE prime generic domains that define their respective industries. Nothing in the mindset of the public is more memorable than a domain that "does exactly what it says on the tin"!

Furthermore, most of our clients are now finding that prime domains such as this pay for themselves within weeks rather than months by virtue of the extra business that they drive to their websites by means of type in traffic and greatly enhanced search engine positions.

Would you like to go ahead with this?

Best regards,

Richard James

I'm really really sick of these bloody emails. I've had ten in the last 24 hours. I just wish I had the means to go after these tossers.

Monitor plant pollen forecasts and plan appropriately. For those who have internet connection, lots of the popular weather forecasting internet sites possess a segment dedicated to hypersensitivity forecasts which include each quality of air and pollen matters. On days and nights once the count up will probably be substantial, keep the home windows closed and restriction your time outside the house. [url=http://www.x21w12w21.info]Gitutyyt[/url]

Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids.
I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the
shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it
pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic
but I had to tell someone!
