Thank You, Ashley Anderson Data Specialist Business Networking Services 1 (800) 841-5070 Iâ€™m counting at 4 violations, plus aggravated damages because the address was harvested. How many violations can you find? Would you trust this company to sell you actual opt-in addresses? Source: http://blog.wordtothewise.com/ ... I couldn't find 4, anybody care to show me the light? 1. No optout link 2. No from address (just the friendly) 3. No "This is an Advertisement" ??? if she's thinking "misleading subject" I think that's a stretch.
