Westley, didn't see an opt-out thing in the email. When I sent it to you I
should have brought up the view with full headers. I did that afterwards,
and saw it was coming from an Eatel i.p. address. Thought about going to
internic and doing a whois on the i.p. but just though the hell with it.
Marked it as spam and deleted.
I was wondering that myself. Double-checked and my email list is
protected, and even then, some addresses are marked as private so
show up as readily.
Unfortunately, I think what they did do is grab them from the
site off the Returning Residents list. Naturally, both you and Jim
the returning list and received the emails.
These people, besides being low-life spammers, are also claiming to
a business address on Packenham Drive that was flooded because of
Web searches have only provided the Gonzales address and reverse
the Chalmette phone number they provide shows no matches. Since the
databases are usually at least 6-12 months out of date, this tells
were not in Chalmette prior to the storm.
I may be wrong, but only the parish or Sheriff's office can tell us
were licensed in St. Bernard prior to Katrina.
I'm not seeing it in the sample that Jim sent, did they provide a
link to be
removed from their email list? I believe that it is a Federal crime
unsolicited email, especially without a method of removal. I also
Parish may be able to pursue them from stealing the names and email
addresses off of the parishes web site for unapproved usage.
I guess they are scrambling for whatever business they can get since
have apparently also lost out on some Corps of Engineers projects.
