Spammer
iVillage.com + email.coupons.com

We started to receive iVillage SPAM during 2010, and although one shouldn't click on the link to 'unsubscribe' we did anyway.

Still the the spam came, so we sought out their customer service who responded:

December 27th, 2010

Hello ,

Thank you for writing in. I am afraid we do not have access to any information other than the email address that is subscribed to our mailings.

I've completed your request to unsubscribe from iVillage newsletters & mailings. Please allow up to 48 hours for this to be fully processed in our system. If there's anything else I can help you with, please let me know!

Best,

Shiver me timbers, they're not learning very fast as on February the 8th, 2011 . . .

Hello ,

Thank you for writing back. I again apologize for any unwanted mailings. I looked through your past four emails to us and do not show that you have ever included the complete mailing you are receiving from us. As I mentioned, we cannot accept attachments, so the mailing will need to be copied and pasted. We show you are marked do not contact, so we will need to see the mailing to send on to our technical staff. I look forward to hearing back from you and appreciate your patience.

Best,

Actually I did send all the headers and email source code in plain html and not in a file, so sent them all again on February the 9th. No response of course.

Then on February the 15th MORE SPAM from iVillage.com / email.coupons.com.

I've asked them several times how I got on the ivillage.com spam email list, but they have never responded.

People of the world, if you're considering purchasing from these dirt bags, can you actually really trust them if they SPAM and lie!  Yeh, I though not.

Let's face it, if they can't find the email address, mine, that they are sending spam to, they are either incredibly stupid or liars.  Probably both!

Take your business somewhere else.

UPDATE:  The ivillage.com spam continues to roll in every Tuesday without fail, and we continue report it. They really are thick and dumb, eh?

In the meantime folk will find web pages such as this one and take their business elsewhere.  Mission accomplished.
