Email from Dr Marc Schneider????

Has anyone else had an unsolicited email from Dr. Marc Schneider?

Not having a moan or anything John, just interested to see how many he picked on.

Copy of mail below.

Nasher.


I am Dr. Marc Schneider and I work for Multilingual Search Engine Optimization Inc. in Washington DC ( Tel: 1 202-250-3645) - I would like to speak with the person in charge of your international clientele. Who is my contact? Who should I speak to??

In fact, after visiting http://rib.net , I have noticed that your website cannot be found on foreign search engines (I tested it on Hispanic search engines, German search engines, Asian search engines, etc.) Our company is specialized in multilingual search engine promotions in 28 languages . From the Japanese Google to the German Yahoo, from the AOL in Spanish to the MSN in Chinese, we can show you how to develop a true international online presence by promoting your website on foreign search engines.

Let us show you how to develop a presence on the multilingual web without having to translate your website: It is not necessary to translate your website in order to submit to foreign search engines, however, you need to have at least 1 page in Japanese optimized with Japanese keywords and meta tags in order to submit to Japanese search engines, at least 1 page in Spanish optimized with Spanish keywords in order to submit to Hispanic search engines and so on...

I strongly suggest that you watch our online presentation which will explains clearly how to get top rankings on foreign search engines with only 1 entry page per language (click on the following link or copy-paste it into your web browser): [URL removed]

From the Japanese Google to the German Yahoo, from the AOL in Spanish to the MSN in Chinese, get users to find your website when searching with YOUR KEYWORDS in their Native language.

Please call me at +1 (202) 250-3645 or email me and let's work on giving your website the true international exposure which it deserves to have with foreign native online users!!

Regards,

Marc Schneider, Ph.D.

Nasher - nothing here - but I guess you do have an email address in your signature.

Nothing here either.

I suspect it's a bot?

Thanks Polwart and Nos

It is a bit of a risk I suppose having that email address in my signature. Interestingly it's the first Spam I've received that mentions rib.net.

Marc Schneider and Multilingual Search Engine Optimization under various compay names are well known spammers. As Polwart and Nos said, it's almost certainly a bot that picked up on the email address in your sig and assumed it was the site owner contact.

By the way, for anyone running email on their own domain name I recommend using Google Apps to handle your mail. It allows you to use your own domain name, but with a full Gmail web mail interface as well as POP3/IMAP, and truly excellent spam filtering. They don't shout about it, but the "Standard edition" is free.
