Anyone else sick of getting emails from Clap Media?

I'm getting them pretty regularly nowadays... I tried to reply to them at first but got no response and just continued to get more of the same...

They usually take the following form:

Quote:
Hi,

I was looking at your site [deleted].com

Just wanted to know if you allow links on your site. The link would be back to one of the top poker rooms in the world whose online presence I am currently working to enhance.

The best news is that if you're happy to include a link on your site, then we would like to send you some high quality branded poker goodies such as hoodies and poker cards. These would be posted to you immediately after the link is posted on the condition that you agree to keep it on your site for a set time period - usually 12 months or permanently (with permanently being our preferred option)

Please let me know your thoughts on this proposal and I look forward to hearing back from you.

Many Thanks

Kate


The site in question in the above instance wasn't even remotely poker-related. Rolling Eyes

I've also been getting ones like this:

Quote:
Hi

I wondered if your site [deleted].com accepted advertising at all. My client is related to
your niche and would like to advertise with you.

Let me know what you think about this offer.

Thanks

Hi,

I am writing to you about your website [deleted].com - I would be interested in advertising on your site. Do you have a policy on this?

Look foward to hearing from you.

I have a client who would like to feature on your website.

Please do let me know your thoughts.

Thanks

I know I've deleted a load from my inbox already but, even having done that, there's still around 15 sitting there from this month alone.

I have also written to them and asked them to stop mailing me, but they take no notice, so I'm posting here to name and shame.

Clap Media... you're a pain in the Ass.

ClapMedia spam actually comes from BlueClaw in Leeds , they use automated tools to spam the internet - if you want them to stop I would suggest emailing fergus@blueclaw.co.uk or calling him on 07930382091 and asking him to stop, apparently they use a tool called scrapebox to spam.

Thanks, Eslim... thankfully I can't say I've heard from them for a while. Either they've changed their ways, removed us or everything's just falling nicely into our spam folder.
