A Noble Calling

I just got an e-mail.

Subject: Become an CELLPHONE SPAMMER

Everyone knows response rates for email
spam have gone downhill tremendously
over the past two years. It’s no surprise …
after all, we’ve been bombarding people
with ads for everything from -removed-
pills to mortgages almost since the day the
Web was invented.

But cellphones are a different story. Very few
people know how to mass broadcast text messages.

But I do. I’ve been doing it for six months now,
and the response rate is HUGE. If I send a hundred
thousand messages, I’ll pull 20 good mortgage leads
easily. And it’s not hard to send a few million
text messages a day. Remember, cellphone carriers
ARE NOT ISPS. They don’t know anything about filters!
They have a few filters, sure, but they are weak
and ineffective.

Bottom line … I am getting sued by two major
carriers and must get out of the business. I am willing
to pass on the torch to 3 people only. I will
give you everything you need to start mass
mailing text messages instantly. Here is what
I will provide you:

** List of over 10,000,000 cellphone numbers
** Script that will autogenerate ALL the possible
cellphone numbers of every major carrier in the US
** Cellphone carrier exchanges (For example, to
send a message to sprint phone, you need the 10 digit
number plus the “@” sign, plus the carrier exchange
at the end, something like 5169023314@sprint.text.com)
** My personal advice and instruction on how to
mass broadcast SMS, tips on the various filters,
and technical support

NOTE: I am not going to hold your hand and walk you
through the process of sending emails. If you are
NOT an experienced bulker already, do not buy this
package. I am only offering this to EXPERIENCED
EMAIL MARKETERS who know how to send email. The type
of support I will provide is information on the filters
that I have discovered during my six months of SMS
mailing. Also, I will discuss the methods I used
to send the mail, but your own methods should work
fine too. If you can send an email, you can send a
text message.

Here is my motto: IF YOU CAN SEND YOUR FRIEND A TEXT
MESSAGE, YOU CAN SEND IT TO ONE MILLION FRIENDS JUST
AS EASILY.

Price for this package is $1,000. I require
half up front, half upon delivery of the
package and three days of support.

Contact me at -removed- if interested.

I am not a ripoff. Upon request, I can fax you a
copy of the 74 page lawsuit against me by Verizon.
I have been a bulker since 1996 and focused entirely
on text messaging for the past six months.

Once again, contact me at -removed-
for more info.

Sincerely,

Eddy M.

The Register just picked this up.

I found your site by searching the phone number. However, the reg includes the name at the bottom while you don't.

I added the name back in. No harm really, I guess.
