Tired of getting SPAM? Well, I might have a clue of who is behind this SCAM!

Recently I purchased a domain to a friend of mine on GoDaddy that doesnt have knowledge on internet so I helped him.

I registered his new domain under his name and used my email address. After a week a started receiving SPAM emails from marketing and internet companies on my inbox and they were addressing my friends name as contact. GoDaddy was the ONLY place I have used my email under my friends name. Therefore its clear that GoDaddy might be selling their clients emails to third party companies!  

GoDaddy will do NOTHING to protect their clients personal information. BE AWARE!!!

#1 Consumer Suggestion

Check the whois...

AUTHOR: richard hurtz - (USA)

Check the whois.

If you have his name and your email listed in the info then anyone can see it unless you have private registration.

Godaddy WILL spam you with ads for themselves, but not outside companies.

There are ways to harvest info from the whois listings, and spammers do that.
