Ill-gotten Emails – staff sourcing.com

Fair warning to all you scammers and spammers out there – You don’t want to email me unless you want to be blown WIDE OPEN. All spams, scams and marketing schemes sent to me are researched and detailed within this blog.

My latest frustration lies with my personal work email, which while it is for a public company, the email lists are private. They can be easily guessed however, if one was to use my Linkedin Profile, using my name and place of employment. This appears to be the newest marketing scheme in an effort to get people to buy into their training, and while these emails looks ‘legit’ the ill-gotten means by which they retrieved my email is unacceptable.

First off, if you come across a major company, you don’t message a random person within the company, you go to the head of the departments. So, after getting the second email, I decided to reply via my own personal email as I don’t risk my company being exposed to spam and scams.

Please stop sending emails to *****@***.com/ca. I shouldn’t have to REMOVE myself from a set of emails you wrongly got my email address from.

I have reported you as spam, as you should have never ever ever found this email, as it’s not posted to any external site, so you either have a staff directory that you’re just testing emails, or have somehow got your hands on our email lists. 

I find this to be extremely frustrating, annoying and mildly scary, let alone bad business practice!  

Fair warning, depending on your response, I will be making a blog post about how your company disregards privacy, sending out automated emails wanting information. 


Please think about your business model and consider contacting the head of this company, whose information is SUPER easy to find online without testing random emails.

Once again, I’d like to point out that I don’t communicate with people outside of the company with that email address, so the only way this address could have been discovered was by ill-gotten means. So I responded back, letting him know this.

(My Reply) – Feb 5, 2019, 10:19 AM (2 days ago)

Once again, that email address is a private company email, and should have NEVER been used. Not sure where you got it from, but you should probably check that these were gotten legally.

In conclusion, I hope bringing forward this information will help keep my friends and family safe, and once again a fair warning to all you spammers scammers and underhanded marketers, don’t send me your junk.

Water CAN Be made

I was told recently that humans will never be able to make water, that it’s just not possible. I stopped dead from whatever I was doing and cocked my head to the side in bewilderment. They then stuttered out something about how God is the only one that can make water, making up a million excuses as to how we couldn’t make water.

While it is super dangerous (many scientists left Hydrogen studies behind after the Hindenburg Zeppelin crash), it is possible.

With Elements Hydrogen and Oxygen:

And with Alcohol!

https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2007/10/071031125457.htm

Not only can humans make water, but we have many different methods of doing so!

Please, to those of you who keep a faith, stop making your faith look bad by using it as an excuse for ignorance. That’s right up there with the Catholic church and gas lamps. No one will believe anything you say if you keep spouting garbage.

CONTENA – UNDERHANDED MARKETING PRACTICES

The below email is a sample of the emails I’ve been receiving asking to join CONTENA, a place where writers are supposedly able to make a career off using. 

Sarah,

There are certain points during our lives when a single positive action or decision can reward us for many years to come. 
 
In January we did some skiing while working remotely from Snowmass Colorado and many decisions needed to be made! 

I can actually trace the beginning of Contena to a single action I took on April 20th, 2015.

I was sitting in my living room, decided to open up a text editor, and began to outline a new service that would make it easier to find remote work.  

The document I created was 2 – 3 paragraphs max.

That single action, led to other actions, which eventually led to me launching a site that has now helped thousands of people land amazing clients and work from anywhere.

Deciding to take that first step or action was the second BEST DECISION I’ve ever made. (The first was marrying my wonderful wife, of course).

So now it’s time for YOU to make a decision.

Maybe you want to build a great remote business that gives you the freedom and flexibility to work from anywhere like Cristee:
Maybe you want to be earning $3,000+ per month on the side from freelance writing a few months from now.

Maybe for you, it’s not about working from an exotic location, or earning a specific dollar amount, but about pushing yourself to try something new and proactively building a future that you control. 

Whatever the motivation, there is no “ideal time” to take action, there is just now.

Waiting for the “perfect time” or the stars to align is just an excuse we make to ourselves which prevents us from taking action and making any real progress.  

Just click the button below, and join us. You can have your business up and running by this time next week.  Think about that for a second…
 I’m ready to build a GREAT writing business with ContenaRemember – Contena is more than just a service that helps you to launch your remote writing business. When you join Contena you are making a commitment  to yourself and to your future. 

So do yourself a favor and take that first step.  

Once you do that, we are here to help with the rest.  

Kevin

PS… At a fundamental level, Contena works because we show which actions will have the biggest impacts and where you *need* to be focusing your time and energy.  We all wake up with a finite amount of hours and energy in the day, so it’s important to focus on actions that will yield the greatest results. 

Let’s say you search for clients 3 times a week and with Contena you save 30 minutes on each of these searches.  Over the course of a year – this is almost 78 HOURS of time recovered.

Almost two full work weeks!  

This isn’t taking into account the value of what you learn from our courses etc.. that is just the time saved from doing what many writers consider to be the most tedious task when it comes to freelancing!
 Yes, I’m ready to get started with Contena!

But after finally receiving an limited time offer email saying there was room, I was disappointed to see the price was not what it had said before. So I decided to hold off. But I was then bombarded with emails saying ‘Last chance!!!’ from October 1st to November 2nd, so I replied as per below.

“I’m really getting tired of these emails. You wouldn’t let me sign up a few months ago. So when I saw your email saying Contena is ready for writers I was extremely excited. But then, the price had been raised, the price of joining, which had super unclear charges – either way making it not feasible for me to join. Then you send emails stating last chance blah blah – which was total BULLSHIT LIES because you KEEP emailing stating that it’s my last chance. This is false marketing and I will be making a post about your underhanded dealings.”

Life gets in the way, and I find myself writing this post almost a month later to me replying to their email. Since then however, I have received no response, yet no end in the ever incoming stream of emails, an additional 9 emails, making this a total of 45 emails received since Sept 18th. I’ve included screenshots to show titles to of these emails, my favorites being ‘Contena Closes Tonight!’ followed by an email 6 days later like nothing had happened.

But what really got me going was the texts I received yesterday.

I don’t remember having to give my phone number,  and when I went into the account settings to remove my private information, (greeted by their latest marketing scheme below) it’s not an option! 

I’m super disturbed with their underhanded practices and lack of actual human communication, which makes me question is my information truly safe? Will anyone return my email? 

Fear Mongering Vegetarians

I have many vegetarian friends…well we’ll see after this, but I do hope they realize the point I’m trying to bring across, and that I’m not attacking their stand, but rather questioning the tactics used to pull people to their side, and to point out the fact that we’ve got a much bigger problem then meat.

Former Piggies

I see videos hit my feeds with terrible butcher shops showing what gets done in these slaughter houses. Ok, that’s sad, disturbing and we shouldn’t be letting this happen yes I agree. But, when I see a video come across my feeds that said ‘You’ll never eat gummies again’ I laugh as I’ve known that procedure has existed long before factory meat preparation. But as I watched the video, they put a whole lot of extra procedures in there that was unneeded. What gummies are made of is gross yes, no grosser then having a pork stew with all the pig odds and ends, but it was to ensure all the animal was used! But somehow that is now being used as a push by vegetarians to stop you from eating meat and now another product. I also read the article, which once again, no background as to when this first started, nothing saying this was a procedure once used to get rid of waste is now a mainstream process that is overused. That would have been non-fear mongering.

My integrity was questioned when I questioned the lack of information that came with this video, “did u watch the video? it doesn’t need words.. pigs packed into small areas are hung up drowned in boiling water then the parts of the animal no one eats are made into candy.. its discusting.. there are so many animals killed for food.. when we wont even let a human suffering die with dignity. if u try to kill yourself u get lock up for mental problems bits fine if its a food animal.. bc if it was a cat or dog people would be freaking out”. –

First off, I have a really hard time listening to somebody who can’t type/spell correctly. In this day and age, we have spell check. Use it.

Second Off — I’m just super tired of vege’s (one what a ridiculous name) blasting farmers and procedures that you evidently don’t know have been around since before the holocaust, or if you did, you omit it for fear effect. If you knew your history, you’d know the Jews refused gelatin offered in concentration camps because they couldn’t eat pork. Many went hungry.

I say that capitalism is what ruined it all and all you vege’s do is fear monger and point out facts that we’re already aware of. Those of us who are responsible about our meat usage aren’t slaughterers, we don’t take JOY in killing them. Let’s maybe look at the good things we’ve done by using everything.

Maybe you think you’ve evolved to live above the wild instincts of nature and you think you’re better then those of us that haven’t ‘evolved’ past this. If this is your way of thinking, maybe you should give us some grace.

‘But I’m so much better then you! I don’t take life!’ You cry indignantly!

I’ll share some science with you. Did you know grass bleeds and when you cut it, it actually goes into nervous shock???? All beings no matter what we think dies for us when we need to eat. It’s how we respect that lose of life that makes us a better person, not shitting on people for trying to stop waste from happening. Instead, you’re going to completely disregard the fact that a person figured out how not to be wasteful with what was given them, not bothering to look at the good that had been done at the past, and mourn how it has become such an easy thing to do.

Many people who tell me they don’t eat meat blame the meat industry. There are some who can’t take a life, saying it’s inhumane. I understand where they’re coming from saying that in this day and age we shouldn’t have to eat meat. But what they don’t seem to realize the part concerns me as it’s not just the meat industry that is corrupting and killing life forms.

The problem isn’t meat. It’s factory production. We’ve lost our connection with our food, plain and simple, and it scares me to know that people aren’t aware of what is in their food, either by ignorance or head burying. Yes, mainstream meat packaging and producing is a terrible terrible way for animals to live, but back in the day when the cattle roamed the plains, the natives taught the white man how to care for the cattle. They KEPT THEM ALIVE. They had to knock frozen snot off their faces when they’d end up stuck out in a field after a snow storm because they really aren’t the brightest creatures.

I come from a long line of farmers, and while I don’t raise my own meat, if I had the chance, sure I’d have a few chickens!!! My father grew up on a farm, and passed his knowledge and green thumb down to his kids. They had a huge vegetable garden, a variety of animals, they grew and raised some for meat, but also cheese, and milk as leaving the mother’s tits full (sometimes they get confused because another calf that isn’t theirs is around and then their bodies start lactation) and so the farmers make sure they aren’t hurting. They all had names, there was even 6 geese that when it came to be their time, grandma butchered them, they stayed frozen till the day she died in the freezer because she couldn’t bring herself to eat her friends.

My great uncles owned a milk farm, about 20 years ago. My boyfriend worked on one in surrey about 6 years ago. Because of these cows, he thought all of them were stupid. The way the farmers treated them was pathetic -automated machines that sliced their legs a few times a day to clean the floors. They were cooped up with minimal space. When he told me I was shocked and told him that’s not how my dad described it. My dad was able to sit down and explain exactly the gorgeous operation that is just too expensive for farmers to uphold in this modern day society. Once again, even all the dairy cows had names, but we’ve lost that connection to the earth.

Same thing goes for vegetables. Our farmers corrupt our crops with chemicals. Not only do they use pesticides, but they use syringes to input a chemical that makes then grow large and pretty looking. Any food that comes across the border has been radiated. Guess what? That’s shit for you! Same thing as factory fed meat.

Well, you say, I only eat Organic. Ok, welcome to 2018, where Organic is just a label slapped on everything for easy sale. Vegetables sporting organic have been proven to be grown right beside the fields being sprayed with pesticides.

So if you want to get on this band wagon, know both sides and stop throwing poo around like a bunch of monkeys hoping someone will get pissed off enough to change their diet. It needs to be a lifestyle change and you need to either grow your own veges and animals, or know artisans around (like my father) who can provide you with fresh produce etc. Basically, don’t buy into this world’s easiness. It’s not just meat.

Farmers had a pact with animals, you treated them well because they gave you life. Are you just going to let species overpopulate so that nature can take it’s course and we’ll have bloody massacres in the streets from Cougars, wolves and other predators we’ve been keeping them safe from. This is a cycle, and though man has gotten way off track thanks to capitalism, we should still try to find a use for everything instead of it becoming a rotting corpse. I myself will donate my body parts so someone else can use them. Who cares, as long as it doesn’t cause harm to the living, what they do with them after I’m gone?

Those of us who are responsible about our meat usage aren’t slaughterers, we don’t take JOY in killing them. And if you’re a hunter, there is thrill to the hunt, not the slaughter.

For so many years people were pissed we weren’t using everything of the animal, and now people knock it now that it’s become factorized. Let’s go back to the little farms and stop throwing around blame when it’s the fact that society has a whole has lost touch with ‘mother nature’ if you will.

One of my biggest annoyances is them ‘There’s facts, THERE’S FACTS!!!’ Like I’m not aware. I am, I just see the bigger picture, and am tired of us using our social media platforms to induce fear when we do have the actual facts in front of us. I’ve never once jumped all over someone for not eating meat. That’s your decision. I’m just getting sick and tired of being pushed on us with twisted facts and hopes you’ll change our minds. That’s manipulative and tactics right out of religious books. But do know that to push it down our throats with twisted facts will only warp how you are portrayed.

Here’s some facts for you PLANTS HURT TOO. They don’t bleed necessarily, as they have their own way of cauterizing the wound. If you want to get on the bandwagon of life is precious, you need to be made aware of the FACTS of science. That lovely smell you inhale, is grass screaming HELP ME!!!!!. And we just do that because it ‘Looks nice’ — A disgusting show of wealth from days gone by.

If people aren’t aware let’s make them aware. But these fear-mongering videos are annoying. Facts people, not just horrifying images.

To this, I was told, ‘but if it was humans it wouldnt be conciderd fearmongering. no one would need facts bc if a picture says a thousand words a video says a million. and an uniformed decision if its to not eat animals is never a bad decision’. — Once again, it’s 2018, please use spell check so I can take you seriously!

Anything done with deception will fail. When pictures and videos are put in a way without the rest of the information that enrages people to make uniformed decisions and take sides that they don’t understand, and one day, because their faith wasn’t put in facts, it will melt away and all you’ve ‘done’ will fall apart, as does any nation or group that puts it’s faith in half truths.

If you still don’t get it, you missed the point entirely of my message.
