Public Shaming

The folks at NorthStar Business Solutions are sending spam email around to Charlottetown businesses, titled “FW: Charlottetown Chamber of Commerce E-Business programs.” I received a copy in my email this morning, and it included a 36KB Word attachment, and an anonymous 247KB attachment labelled simply Picture.

I don’t know who NorthStar Business Solutions is, but by sending me unsolicited email, they have guaranteed that I won’t do business with them.

An appropriate invoice [5KB, PDF] was sent in reply. I would encourage other annoyed recipients to do likewise.

Note to other businesses: don’t send me junk advertising email unless I give you permission!

Wow, you’re a real jerk Peter. Very nice though. I’ve had a similar problem with local junk faxes. I deal with them in a similar manner.
