Ignore it! Why you ask?

Can you trust this company?

Have you ever heard of this company before? Do they have a WORKING phone number? Are they even real?

Can you trust the sender?

A good email system and a bit of searching would tell you that the ip address is from another domain and if you do a quick search on the reply to email address that this person or "SEO" company has been email spamming, forum spamming and more.

Is this company in America?

There's a good chance you are receiving this message in America, so the chances of you getting any money back from them is laughable. Unless you just want to throw your money into a hole, then leave them alone. Find a local SEO company that you can hold accountable if you are unsatisfied with the results.

Even Google gets these spam emails

Asks you to unsubscribe

Oh how nice of them. A way out. But most of the time, replying ANYTHING back is a bad idea because many times it lets the sender know you are a real person and that the email address is valid.

Poor Grammer

Excessively poor grammar is a dead giveaway to the reliability of what is supposed to be a reputable company.

Asks you to reply

Replying ANYTHING back is a bad idea because many times it lets the sender know you are a real person and that the email address they are spamming is valid.

Ignore it! Ignore it!

Sometimes the spam is intended to hurt the reputation of a competitor. That's why it's best to simply ignore email spam altogether.
