I have a collection of emails going back years from ZoomInfo,RecruiterLife and now evidently RecruiterEarth that may total 100 or more. They seem to be the same people.Â Those 100Â are from after I began saving them for any hungry attorney who wants my case. Bob Style, please forward to a friend. If he/she normally gets 1/3 I’ll volunteer 60% to the attorney who takes this case before we even negotiate.
These emails always have either a return email address that does not work or an opt-out link that appears to work but (evidently)Â does nothing. For a while, I just deleted them. Then for a while I’d call them and ask that they stop emailing me. They said they would and they didn’t. Now I just collect them. Does anyone have any useful suggestions besides ‘just delete them’? Is there any watchdog group for spamstalking?

I send a newsletter now and then and I always delete the bounced email addresses and the occasional opt-out. We even sometimes call to apologize. It’s just aggravating that these people just ignore the laws/rules and everything else. I guess it is not surprising given many other experiences I have heard about and even seen back when some of these folks used to sell out-dated phone lists and directories.
On a side note, it’s really odd that somehow the remainder of my spam load seems dramatically lower in the past few months.
