sendacrush.com...the ultimate in email address collection! More inside->
posted by Why (14 comments total)

 
I received an email from them stating that someone had a crush on me and I had to sign up to see who it was. So I sign up and enter my account where I am supposed to find out who has a crush on me. All was for naught as I find out I have to "guess" who it was that sent a crush by typing in email addresses until I "guess correctly" my crush's email.

Neat little way to collect "live" email addys, that is those that are in use. I say hack them.

Different site. Same idea.

A few days ago I read a very funny account of someone's attempt to find out who had a crush on him, using this "service"(which ended, after many trials, with his being informed "currently we know of no one who has a crush on you"). Does anyone have a better memory than I do?

I'm game, Why. Whom shall we choose?

Tom Anderson. FWIW, does anyone else think Tom Anderson is a very generic (lol) and suspicious name?

Yes, I do.

Sweet. First time anyone has almost double posted (triple, if you go back far enough) one of my links!

I would be very interested in hearing about anyone's stories about getting to the end of the "hint" path. It's an effective slimeball marketing tactic -- even though I'm smart enough not to, I'm always tempted.

Hmmm...

Posing as Tom Anderson seems to be popular among Irish crooks too(scroll down).

OK, Why. Considering our own Tom Anderson has been spamming me daily for years, ever since I foolishly bought some domain names from his company, I agree with the nomination but can't find his address. I vonder vy!

This is somewhat related. Not sure if it's a scam though.
