The following is just one of many spam emails that are sent to anyone who has registered a domain.

The spammer gets the name and email address from domain information on file and never actually visits the website. This is the same email that thousands of people will get.

Hi Sir/Madam,

I was looking at your website and realized that despite having a great design; it was not ranking high on any of the search engines (Google, AOL and Bing) for most of the keywords related to your business. We can bring you more clients and customers. I will do this by advertise your business structure and its merits on different social media platforms with the help of my SEO skills. I will put you on the first page of Google; this will help clients and customers to find you more easily. This will be done within your budget which doesn’t affect your business a little.

I am affiliated with a SEO company that has helped over 200+ businesses achieve (1st Page Ranking on Google) search result page for highly competitive keywords.  Let me know if you are interested, I will send you our SEO Packages & price list and our company details.

Kind Regards
Nancy Jain
Business Development Manager

So let’s break down this email.

1. I was looking at your website and realized that…. No They never did visit the website otherwise they would say something specific that applies to only your site – i.e. the colors, layout, content, etc. remember these emails are sent to anyone who regsiters a domian name. I regularly get these emails for domains that do not even point to a website yet.

2. We can bring you more clients and customers. I will do this by advertise your business structure and its merits on different social media platforms with the help of my SEO skills. A good way to spot spam emails is to note misspelled words and broken English. Many of these come from India, Russia, China, etc.

Nancy Jain is a Business Development Manager? For what company, where are they located? Why can’t she give an address or phone number? Why would anyone working for an SEO company use a free AOL address?

These type of emails are only some kind of scam to get your money. SEO strategy is complex and, done right, quite time-consuming. When you revive one of these emails ask yourself the following question: Do I really want to hire someone I don’t know who contacted me through an unsolicited email from another country and is not using their real name?

After all – would you hire a doctor if they sent you an email like this:

Hi Sir/Madam,

I was looking at your facebook photo and realized that despite having a great smile, you could use some plastic surgery so people find you more attractive. We can bring you more compliments and a better paying job by making you more appealing to people who will spend money on you and buy you gifts such as new cars and homes. I will do this by removing extra fat from your stomach and butt, you’re your cheeks, remove eye wrinkles, and make you look 20 years younger. This will be done within your budget on weekends and at night as to not disrupt your life.
I am affiliated with a well-known hospital that has helped over 200+ people look better using my special techniques.
Let me know if you are interested, I will send you our plastic surgery packages & price list and our hospital details.

Kind Regards
John Smith
