June 9th, 2008, 01:14 PM #1Spam King on Facebook -> Rehabilitated!
So the other day Scott Richter sends me a friend request on Facebook ... I add him to see what he has to say .... Today I get:
Hey - Betweeen you and Scott Richter
Today at 1:44pm
I run Cpaempire.com a large affiliate network with over 600 offers for US and International traffic. Please let me know what we can do to work together to start making some serious money with each other. I know there is no one who can beat our payouts.
Always looking for opportunities!

Actually a lot of my "friends" are constantly spamming me. I delete them as the spam comes in. I don't mind people who contact me about stuff but I don't need tons of emails in Facebook soliciting me.

I joined several groups that had affiliate marketing in their title and were recommended by friends. Then I start getting the CPA offers! Next step, defriend them.

Got Scott's invite too and thought "You must be kidding!". Join the spam kings list? Huh? It's still pending and will rot there, I get enough emails from his "friends" as it is.

After a couple of ill words from him and me reporting him for spam and harrasement and now he's blocked. I suggest you all click the report this link as well.
Shoot, maybe they'll clip him for a couple of bucks like myspace did.

I got the same exact message a few minutes ago. Considering we have spoken a number of times in person, I was surprised that he thought he had to introduce himself and CPA Empire. I bet he has someone doing this for him, if not a program. Otherwise he'd recognize who these are going to.Brad Waller | VP, Business and Affiliate Development

It's him doing it - as soon as I complained to him he retorted immediately with insults and rhetoric.

Like it or lump it, CPA is a legit and permanent part of affiliate marketing.

It would've been one thing if he messaged you and you hadn't accepted his request, but you technically opted-in to receiving messages from him by accepting his requests. I'm not fan of Richter, and I'm just as much not a fan of CPAEmpire (though I do like other CPA networks), but he didn't break any Facebook TOS rules, nor would that technically be considered spam.
Is he being annoying, obnoxious, and not really personalizing his messages to his audience? Yes. Has he broken any Facebook rules by messaging a "friend"? No.
If someone I haven't really dealt with tries to add me on Facebook or LinkedIn, I just turn down their request.

I guess his spam rehabillitation was successful, Good to know!
Edited to add: I'll edit the title of the thread to celebrate ...

Scott rehabilitaed ? NOOOOOOOT !!
BTW: I got a 'friend' that openly states he uses some software called friend something or other. It essentially spams these boards.
I checked out his stuff & he has like 10,000 friends. Now Haiko, I just gotta ask, how many times hava you spoken to all 43,000 ABW members ? ~ Perhaps NEVER ?
The software seems pointless. I am glad it is for windows only too.
As Vistour Mall put it, "So help me understand why ?"

It Looks like the MySpace verdict is in,
"MySpace can collect $6 million from a notorious Internet marketer accused by the popular online hangout of spamming its users."

In this case, he said, Media Breakaway had misunderstood MySpace's rules prohibiting commercial messages. "Once they told us it was wrong we threw the iron curtain down on it," Richter said in an interview.
