Moments ago I received yet another email from you asking me to sign up for your service. I’ve received similar emails, oh I don’t know, at least a couple of dozen times.
I have repeatedly asked you to stop spamming me. I even asked nicely the first ten or twelve times. Yes, I have dutifully clicked on your “unsubscribe” link, apparently to no avail.
Here’s the deal”¦
You could pay me a fee and I’d tell you to take a flying leap. I won’t use your service. Ever.
I don’t know how to make that any clearer.
You see, I am a real estate blogger. I have seen how the CEO of your company, Ben Behrouzi treats bloggers. Why in the world would I want to be associated with a company that stomps all over people, relies on threats and intimidation, files ridiculous lawsuits, and markets their services chiefly via spamming techniques?
I don’t know what it’s going to take to really be removed from your mailing list. Your repeated unrequested and unwelcome solicitations for my business are in violation of the CAN-SPAM Act.
Asking politely doesn’t work. Your so-called unsubscribe link doesn’t work. Emailing you directly doesn’t work. Next I’ll see if filing complaints with the FTC will do any good. I see they can fine you $11,000 a pop. Your two-bit lawyer could generate a lot of threatening cease & desist letters with that 11 grand.
For the love all all things decent, it seems like it would be easier for all of us if you just removed me from your damn mailing lists. You’re wasting my time, and your time.

For those reading this, if you are not aware of what Ben Behrouzi, CEO of ePerks, is doing to blogger Vlad Zablotskyy, you should read through some of the posts on BrokerScience.com as well as Vlad’s blog.

Should you be so inclined (though who knows why you would), here is the spam from ePerks, and my response (links redacted)
I have zero desire to be associated with ePerks. I’m a real estate
blogger and I see how your CEO, Ben Behrouzi, treats bloggers.
I have unsubscribed from your mailing list numerous times, yet I
continue to be spammed, in direct violation of the CAN-SPAM act
Please for once and for all, remove me from your mailing lists.
I need to establish a relationship with a reliable buyers agent that my broker can work with to close transactions for our clients and who are open to paying us a 19% referral fee after closing a transaction with the buyers.
This is not a lead generation program. I will not send you lists or ask you to cold call customers or charge you per-lead fees. Our clients come to you when they are prepared to buy or sell their home because they are using our program to get a significant amount of cash back from us when they close escrow with one of our partnered agents.
If you would like a detailed description of how our system works.Click Here to review our business model, pricing and guarantee. Then select the “Check Available Territories” button and use my “Referral ID” JL21 at any point to view available territories or give me a call to discuss your options and answer any questions you have.
Again Please Use My Referral ID: JL21
