For the past several months, I’ve received unsolicited emails from a company called The Book Man at www.gbbookman.biz about Bible and book repair. I wouldn’t be unhappy or posting this article, if the owner of The Book Man allowed recipients a way to unsubscribe from his email list.
In fact, I’ve provided FREE advice about email marketing, federal SPAM laws and using programs such as MailChimp in order to comply with these laws and to allow recipients to unsubscribe.
On 3 November 2013, I received the following response to my demand to be removed from the list:
“I apologize once again. I have 2 people working for me and they apparently are not communicating. This address has, again, been purged.”
Since I’ve received two more emails (21 November and today 29 November), I’m to assume that this is just all a game to The Book Man.
