    Why do you ask, expat, were you sent a speculative email out of the blue?

    I see only email and phone contacts - I prefer to know where somebody is when I'm dealing with them.

    Idle curiosity. One of the few that survived agressive sp^m filtering with a clear e-mail that reflected actual ranks and wasn't full of blurb, etc...

    Just thought they maybe known....
    Thank & Cheers

    I checked in a few places and they don't appear to be very old. That domain is new. They're comparing themselves to overture and google? nothing on the web that I've found shows trafficconversions to be more than 10 months old!

    It has been over a month since this thread was posted, did anyone find out anything about this outfit?

    Personally I had never heard of them before...

    I just got an email from them myself. Their website isn't even coming up for me. Did anyone find anything out? The email contained a phone number. I may call it. If I do, I will post my results...

    Called the number... It is basically says: "Leave a message..."

    Anyway, did some more digging and found a post here:
    www.adamgeek.com/index.php/archives/2004/08/25/14/trackback/

    That should answer most questions.

    It doesn't look very legit to me. They don't even have a physical address, just a toll=free phone and an email. The service they offer doesn't sound like anything you couldn;t have done yourself with other services on line, which have proven to be effective to some degree. The descriptions in each page are vague and never answers any questions in details. In fact, this site lacks any real content.

    I just got an email from kathleen@trafficconversions.com
    It seemed like a scam so I did a search and found the old thread here at DP.

    Guess, she is still up to her old tricks. I got this message today June 21 2005.

    Nothing but a scammer. Just ignore it like the hundreds of other spam emails you get. My favorites are when they spoof the address and send it to you from "yahoo" or "google" :D

    Has anyone got any more of this emails from Kathleen lately?

    If so, would someone please call her or reply to the email as if you are interested and lead her along to see what develops. I think you will be surprised to find out that the company behind it is not trafficconversions.com but in fact another well known search engine marketing company that is using this as a front to cover their spam.

    I have some interesting evidence for everyone in regards to who is really behind these emails, but would like some collaborating evidence from another source.
