Arthur Simmons – in spam we trust

Det er sjelden jeg interesserer meg for spammen som dukker opp i postkassa . Men noen ganger får jeg lyst til å advare andre mot slike suppegjøker som sender ut dritt som dessverre kan lure noen til å ta kontakt. I bunn og grunn er dette blogginnlegget en oppfordring til alle om å google nøkkeldata fra «snåle» e-poster man mottar. Som oftest finner man kjapt ut hvorvidt det hele er snakk om scam og lureri. Bare ta en kikk på hva som dukker opp dersom jeg søker i Google etter «Arthur Simmons» som er gjenstand for denne bloggposten! Rimelig enkelt å se ut kosekaren er gjenstand for litt diskusjon, for å si det på den måten.

En herremann ved navn Arthur Simmons (jada, helt sikkert hans sanne navn) har altså kontaktet meg ved flere anledninger for å få meg til kjøpe domenet gratis-filmer.com – sikkert fordi jeg eier et lignende domenenavn.

Han skriver i 3. eller 4. oppfølgingsepost til meg:

Hello,

I contacted you the other day about gratis-filmer.com, but you did not indicate interest in it. If you are interested in the domain, you can take priority position to acquire it here: http://ARTSYN.COM/[kuttet bort]

Also, I have received a number of questions from my morning email about domain purchases. So, I thought I would take a moment to answer the most common questions:

1. I don’t want to rebrand everything – Not to worry, you do not have to rebrand at all. After you buy the domain, my system can automatically link gratis-filmer.com to your website (gratis-filmer.no for example). You will be up and running with the new domain almost immediately.

2. I used to own this domain and lost it! – If you owned the domain previously, we will work with you. Our company has special policies and discounts for domains accidentally lost by previous owners. Previous domain owners have priority to acquire the domain.

3. How much does the domain cost? – We accept all reasonable offers on domains and we sell the domain first-come, first-serve to the first reasonable offer.

You can submit your offer on gratis-filmer.com here: gratis-filmer.com.

Most find my priority domain notice system to be very useful. If you prefer not to receive these messages, please simply send me a quick email and I’ll be sure you don’t receive any more.

Best regards,
Arthur Simmons
InTrust Domains

Herr Simmons fra firmaet InTrust Domains ønsker altså å hjelpe deg til å sikre deg et domene før noen andre. Bare så det er helt klart, dersom du ønsker å kjøpe et domene, er det ingen vits å bruke slike tjenester. De vil bare lure deg for gryn. Gå heller til Domeneshop (enkelt), Active24 (kjekk søkefunksjon), One.com (billig) eller Webhuset (høy kvalitet) for å finne om domenet du vil ha er ledig.

Kan det bli tydeligere: Glem Arthur Simmons! Ikke svar han i det hele tatt. Jeg kunne ikke dy meg og sendte han en liten e-post fra en søppeladresse jeg har – rett og slett for å få ut litt luft:

Hi Arthur,

thanks for spamming me over and over again. Why don’t you just buy/use that precious domain and make a great web page? I don’t really care what you do, except that your spamming will make me write a nice blog post where I recommend all people to forget about any emails from you.

Greetings,

Rune

OPPDATERING TORSDAG 20.01.2011:

Det ser visst ikke ut til at Arthur Simmons vil ha e-post fra meg. Fikk nettopp feilmelding på e-posten jeg sendte ham:
