    I have a "business" looking domain that I use for my small consulting company.
    I just got the below in the mail. Looks like they are trolling to make it look like the business has a pre-existing relationship with them and trying to get some money based upon an invoice. I've seen some comments on it in Google but was curious if anybody else has gotten this trash?
    Was just curious if anybody else (that has a business appearing domain - mine is tntcomputersvc) get anything like it?

    I love the way they place it in the envelope so that when you open it it appears to be a valid invoice... but on the back of the page they tell you it's a solicitation. Talk about typical shady SEO marketing practices - this type of stuff is what gives valid SEO companies a bad name.

    I've gotten these before. They make fantastic paper "pilots" for the fireplace.

    Yeah, the paper is to smooth to use for what it should be used for. :p

    I've got loads of these over the years - and always from the USA too. They go straight into the bin.

    If they have pre-paid return envelopes rip it up and mail it back to them. ;)

    Just googling the name "Web listings inc" already shows several sites about how it's a scam. :)

    Yup I get all sorts of crap like this. The best one's are the "Domain Registry of America" offering to renew my domains on behalf of my registrar.

    Plot twist: I own my own registrar company.

    If it's got a pre-paid envelope, send some junkmail back to them as they'll have to pay for the return once it goes through the postal system :)

    I once copied both the letter and pre-paid envelop (about 100x). Then mailed them out. Have never received another one ever again.

    Illegalities aside, I get them all the time sent to my LLC address. I guess they must have some success with the practice.

    Toilet paper? You like rubbing your bum with rough toilet paper?...

    No, prefer soft... but smooth has a habit of not doing the job. :ROFLMAO:

    Just yanking your chain. I'm not a fan of smooth toilet paper either for anything, especially nicks from shaving. Though it does make for good buffing when it comes to stuff like silverware after you've washed the polishing paste off.

    Buffing silverware... yes
    Buffing bottoms...... no!:D

    I think Lowes has a sale on belt sanders at the moment.

    I always buff with chamois.

    I've got dozens of those. Autogeek keeps sending me coupons, I keep buying 'em!
