Salesgenius List Selling Spam

Here’s an interesting business question:

Would you trust the integrity of a business list marketed to you by a spammer?

SalesGenius along with “DataBase 101” and “InfoFree.com” (among other aliases) must think so as they’re ripping out plenty of spam trying to sell marketing lists to other small businesses.

This leaves us with Spammers selling spamming lists to potential spam wannabees. Just perfect.

Emails arrive mostly from various SalesGenius servers such as:

  • from sjc-app-gold1.genius-network.com ([204.44.61.169]
  • from sjc-app-juno1.genius-network.com ([204.44.61.139]

With subjects like:

Subject:     Only $24.95 per month gets you unlimited sales leads, mailing lists and emails.
From:     “infofree” <customersuccess@infofree.com>

or

Subject:     Add to Your Customer Base – Try Our Email Marketing Starter Kit
From:     “Database101” <customersuccess@database101.com>

While the emails are designed to appear unique with a variety of business addresses:

  • 11211 John Galt Blvd. Omaha, NE 68137
  • 1300 S El Camino Real : San Mateo, CA 94402

And a wide variety of phone numbers:

  • 888-643-6487
  • 877-448-0101
  • 402.596.1000
  • 877-417-0101

These (and many others) will all lead back to links including:

Some might think buying spam lists from deceptive spammers is a good business decision. All we can say is such buyers will get pretty much exactly what they deserve.
