Always signed off by something like “Website Analyst” or “Marketing Expert”, but never a company name and always from a gmail address.
Well there’s a very good reason for this. They know if they get caught using this technique there’s large fines. They’re sending to an email database that’ll be scraped from sites, or bought without the correct permissions, so by using gmail disposable addresses, they avoid being blacklisted for spam.
Don’t fall for it! Think just for a moment, if they were really able to get you to number 1 on Google for your terms in a month, why would they need to break laws and spam thousands of people a day?
