ScamAdviser or scammer advice?
Last week, our CEO wrote a request email to sincerely appealed and requested ScamAdviser (scamadviser.com) to remove our site from so-called the “scam” list, as we (Vision Dream Technology) has been in business for about 7 years and we have multiple large corporate clients in our account. Here is the actual email content (CEO’s phone number removed and full name changed to initial) our CEO sent to them. You don’t have to be no scam adviser to tell. Be the judge yourself. (Please read the bold and red sentence we highlighted) To get your site verified, of course you need to pay them certain fee. Genuine review?
Their reply email header shows it is coming from Mandrillapp.com not scamdriver.com (mandrill is MailChimp Transactional Email App). Why?
