Ignore it! Why you ask?
The name of the company is not included in the email. Typically a reputable company will include their Name, Email Address, a working phone number, and a street address of their business.
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.
Was this email written specifically for you?
These messages are usually sent to thousands of potential customers hoping for quick cash.
Even Google gets these spam emails
Web consultants or agencies that send you email out of the blue.
Be wary of SEO firms and web consultants or agencies that send you email out of the blue.
Amazingly, we get these spam emails too:
I visited your website and noticed that you are not listed in most of the major search engines and directories..."
Reserve the same skepticism for unsolicited email about search engines as you do for "burn fat at night" diet pills or requests to help transfer funds from deposed dictators.
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.
Communication contains suspicious links
Links can hide a lot of information. Some links have query string attached to them that mask hidden data that may give a spammer some indication that your email address 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.
