New Scams for Old

I kept getting unwanted messages from some vendors that I have done business with. Some were familiar. Others were not familiar and gave cause to wonder why they thought I would be interested in hearing from them.

Turns out that some companies automatically subscribe you to their ‘newsletter’ when you place an order. If you do not want to be subscribed, you have to go out of your way to find the elusive subscription box and uncheck it. The bottom line here is that they can send you spam and cover their ugly behinds by claiming you subscribed to receive the crap they are sending.

I consider this the ugliest of ugly fraudulent tactics. If their marketing is this devious and evil the rest of the company has to be rotten as well.
