Email Lists & Companies that abuse them

I filled out a form on a website that gave me 15% off my order, as I am sure a lot of people do. You know full well you will be put on their email list, but you say to your “I will just unsubscribe later”. Well, when later comes and you unsubscribe, you find that it will take 7 to 10 days (sometimes more) to be removed from their list. And in the meantime, you start getting MORE emails from them.

Well, I have had enough of this practice from companies! I just sent this email to a company (listed below), and will send the same email to every company that does this to me.

If enough people do this, the companies might stop this (I am not counting on that), but at least they will know what the public thinks about it. them.

Feel free to copy this email and/or post and share it, post it on your blog, post it on your wall, etc. The more this idea gets around, maybe the sooner companies will change their ways.

QUOTE from my email

Your company put me on your mailing list immediately after I put my email address in your form and/or you put me on the list as soon as I made an order. But it will take you 7 – 10 days to remove me from that list.

Because it takes you that long to remove me from your list, I will not be purchasing from you in the future.

I am tired of companies, like yours, that promote the practice of quickly putting people on their mailing list, and then 7 to 10 days (or more) to take them off the list. I have found that most companies that do this, like your company, start sending MORE emails as soon as someone requests to be removed from the mailing list.

I will also be posting a list of the companies on my blog, my Facebook page, my Twitter account and well as telling my friends & family about this practice from every companies that does this. Maybe if your company loses enough business from this, you may change your ways – but I am not counting on it.

FOUND: Rediscovering Your Dreams, Your Voice, and Your Life in 15 Minutes a Day - FREE Kindle Edition

Hey Rockstar,

Today's the day... for a limited time, you can claim your free copy of "FOUND: Rediscovering Your Dreams, Your Voice, and Your Life in 15 Minutes a Day." http://www.lainehmann.com/getfound

With 28 five-star reviews, "FOUND" is ranked #1 in its category in the Kindle store, and you can get your copy, free.

Full of practical tips and advice, this short guide will help you reclaim your voice and create a life in line with your passions. Download it now!

Here is the blurb/description on Amazon:

Do you have laryngitis of the soul? Do you feel like your voice – who you really are without all the roles of mother, sister, daughter, wife, friend – is silent, or is such a tiny little whisper that you can barely even hear it under the cacophony of other people's voices and demands?

If so, you aren't alone. Most women say that they have lost their voice, lost their dreams, lost themselves, after years of living for other people. But there's still something inside of them longing to be heard. They want to live life louder, without having to conform to the expectations of other people's dreams and goals and priorities. Somehow they woke up and found themselves in a life they didn't realize they were creating, and something in the pit of their stomach says that it may already be too late.

It isn't too late. But first, you have to figure out what it is you really want. You have to figure out who you are at the core, after the other stuff has been peeled away. And that's what authenticity is all about: Defining you and your life on your terms. It's not an easy process, but it is a simple one, and that's what this book is all about. In its pages, life coach, speaker, and author Lain Ehmann will lead you on a process of finding out what that little voice is really saying, and in the process of listening, you just might find the secret to the life of your dreams.

Something prompted you to pick up this book to begin with. That little voice won't yell or scream or throw a temper tantrum to make you listen. Instead, it will just go back to its corner and silence itself, until one day you can't hear it anymore.

PS Stay tuned for a special announcement about a live webinar Q&A with Lain to answer your questions about implementing the information in "FOUND." She want to hear from YOU.

DO NOT ORDER from Rosegal.com

DO NOT ORDER from Rosegal.com

The dress I order doesn't even come close to fitting me. The dress was listed as "one size" so measured myself before ordering and all my measurements were below what they said the dress would fit.

I opened a trouble ticket and they offered me a choice - $2 credit on my account (the dress cost $11.99) or return the dress for a full refund. Problem is, the dress came from China and it would cost $11.14 to ship it to them.

This is what I wrote is response to their offer:

I don't accept your partial refund since I will never be ordering from your site again. Sending the product back to China would cost me as much as the price of the product5 - so basically I am out the money I paid for the dress.

The sizes/measurements on your site are a joke, I measured myself before ordering the dress, and the dress would not fit anyone in that size range. It is basically a size small, not a "one size" as stated on your site.

I am extremely disappointed with your company. I will be posting a negative review on Facebook, Yelp, Better Business Bureau, and my blog. I will also be posting a review on sites such as ripoff.com, pissedconsumer.com and other similar sites.

Just wanted to let other people know about this.
