Even though I have said this 1,000’s of times before, I made the fatal mistake and this is what happened.
Within 20 minutes I had 7 more emails in my Inbox and . . .
, I know!!
It was my own damn fault.
How many times have I told others not to reply to these emails?
And yet, for some reason, I still fell into the trap!! LOL
Here’s what happened.
We have a Website Enquiry page which is the first step of our website development process.
People wanting to build a new website fill in their details on the Website Enquiry page as the first step, and then we have a detailed consultation with them about their business and their business requirements.
After that, we prepare a written proposal before proceeding with the project.
Either way, it is not a form for Indian web developers to spam us with!! LOL
Well, one time maybe, but twice in a couple of hours was too much.
So I politely replied . . .
Spamming our website enquiry page is NOT going to get you ANY work from us 🙁
STOP IT !
Here’s what I got back . . . 7 unreadable emails in 20 minutes.
So the rule has not changed.
DO NOT reply to any SPAM emails
In fact, the rule has expanded to include . . .
DO NOT reply to dubious enquiries on your website’s Contact Us page
As you see from these images, the justification for using our website enquiry page was that we had not responded to their previous SPAM emails.
Incredibly, we continued to get more emails after that, along the same lines.
Here is another version of the rule . . .
DO NOT reply to dubious enquiries on your Skype
Well, that is quite simple really!
