Yours Truly, Anonymous
2005 by Jeff Reinbold


 

How many times today have you gotten an email message with an
offer in it for a money making deal or some type of service?
Probably many times! And, how many of those messages had no
individuals name or contact information, just a web site URL?
Again, probably many!

I received one a couple of hours ago that had a pretty good
offer in it, one that I a least was willing to check out further.
It was a network marketing program that was in Pre-Launch and
I had not heard of it before, so it appeared to be pretty new.
The email had no name on it either in the body or in the "From"
line. All it had was a URL to the web site.

So off I went to the web site. The home page was well done and
it described a typical network marketing program. There was no
identification on the home page as to who the sponsor was nor
was there any specific information about the company other than
its name. I spotted a link entitled "About Us" and clicked on
that.

Nothing there either in respect to the name of the individuals
running the business, where it was located or how to contact
them. You would think that on a page titled "About Us" you would
see that type of information. But all this page had on it was a
description of a network marketing company, in generic terms.

So I checked out the page "Terms of Membership" and that page
was also void of any contact information. I did note that the
company was probably in Texas since part of the agreement
indicated that ......would be governed by the laws of the State
of Texas.

I checked out every page and they were all void of any
identification of the people running the program. Even the
"Contact Us" page had a input form to send them a message rather
than listing an actual email address.

It also bothers me that people try to market products by email
without identifying themselves (other than their email address
and sometimes that is false) and expect to be successful. It
reminds me of when I used to do a lot of snail mailings and
the response mailings would be very similar. No return address,
no name and address inside the envelope other than the
promotion company's address and an ID number on a circular.
I know a lot of you have gotten those! And in most cases they
went right in the circular file. Well now you have a button
that you can use to put them in the circular file!

The company you should want to deal with is the one that makes
full disclosure of who they are, has a privacy statement that
spells out what they are going to do or not do with your personal
information, and provides accurate information about their
products and services. You don't want to deal with someone who
appears to be hiding behind a web page, they may be here today
but gone tomorrow!

Do you use "Yours truly, Anonymous" as your signature file?
