Mindshark Marketing an Ontario, Canada based company has been spamming one of my sites by using a free email account from Google. The email it is coming from is ceceliamaloney20@gmail.com.
The content of the emails are:
Prospect Name: Cecelia Maloney
Prospect Phone: 01210120120
Prospect Email: ceceliamaloney20@gmail.com

Prospect Page:

We are interested to increase traffic to your website, please get back tous in order to discuss the possibility in further detail.

To find out who this ceceliamaloney20 is I emailed them back. I got a colorful Mindshark email which I ignored. I didn't give them my number or anything. Today,somehow theyfound my cell number and decided to call me. A Seattle based rep from number 206-973-8021 called to sell these services again. I told him thatI was concerned about the spam he had been sending to me and wantedhim to stop. [continued below]....

..... When asked that what is the gurantee that you can get it on the top of Google's first page, the guy hung up.

I am extremely concerned about Mindshark'sMarketing tactics and business ethics and really question the value they provide since theytry luringvulnerable small businesses with email spam.

#1 Consumer Comment

Mindshark Has been Spamming both my businesses for over a year

AUTHOR: shawshank - (Canada)

Mindshark Has been Spamming both my businesses for over a year Calling from 1-347-584-1992  and leaving  # 1-877- 674- 2751 to call back on. They have been spamming us and using many different gmail addresses and calling and leaving phone messages saying they the saying they have over 4500 clients and rated #1 SEO company in North America ?? By who.

These guys are preying on people who they think don't understand how SEO works. The best companies are (((Competitive Content Redacted))) and they are honest.

You can do a competitive analysis on them mindshark.ca and see their keyword ranking , SEO score, Alexa ranking , traffic ranking, Google PR etc.......

Stop spamming us!

sorry, allowing you to give a competitors name would instigate others to just file against their competition, to only come back later to suggest their company your comments on this policy are welcome!

#2 UPDATE Employee

The true inside story

AUTHOR: Mindshark Team - (United States of America)

I have been with the named company above for over 3 years and would like to state a few key Facts with reference to the above posting.

1) The posting above contains an SEO friendly title which leads us to believe that it is intentionally  posted maliciously with the intent of defamation and bad mouthing.

2) Our company has searched our entire database and did not find any reference to the above email address.    We also do not have any "seattle" based reps nor are there any phone numbers associated with that area code in our company database.   From our website you can clearly see we do not have any offices or staff in that location.  Based on this we know the above posting to be false, and/or fabricated, or based on mistaken information of another company

3) Our company does not engage in any spammy activities.  We are vehemently opposed to such methods, and all our marketing methods are very much above board and opt-in methods where companies request information from our firm.

4) Our services are extremely effective and with a client roster of over 4000 satisfied companies, we are happy to say that we are one of the largest and most reliable and credible online marketing firms today.

5)  Any prospect who has come across this posting should take a deep and clear look at the facts and then judge for themselves.   With over 4000 clients seeing success, our company has hundreds of testimonials and references on paper, as well as on video, and live people who are willing to recommend our services.  

One simple phone call to our office at the above mentioned number 18776742751 will allow you to experience the truth.   :)   By the way we have 0 complaints of results, and a perfect record on our BBB rating.     This in itself is an enormous feat which we are immensely proud of.  It speaks to the true success of our clients.
