    I keep getting ths email, like a robot (not an AM) is sending it
    This one from PCMall AM

    "Hi

    I would just like to ask for your email address and contact informationís so that whenever we launch our new program we can get in touch with you right away to deliver the good news. .... "


    I got it like more than twice in like 3 months.

    I replied to the first one, but it looks like this AM is a robot.

    First of all... why does he need me to send my e-mail address, when he already has it, is beyond my understanding.

    I think he is trying to generate a list internally. IMHO

    Like Linkshare, you have to use their email system and you might get xxxxx number of emails per month. Some merchants are generating their own list so that they can send it out to their aff without much cost and hassle.

    That or they're posing as an AM and really just looking to clean a list grabbed by an earlier harvester bot targeting affiliates of the program in question. Anyone that replies moves to the good list, anyone that bounces gets scrubbed and the rest just keep getting the same message...

    they should have scrubbed the list after 3 soft bounce or not send the email after your reply..

    exactly,

    anyway - it looked fishy to see an email from some one and them asking for your e-mail address again

    Are you sure you got 3 about the same site. maybe you got 1 for each of their programs, like pcmall, macmall, or whatever other sites they run.
    My guess is maybe they're cleaning their list, and dropping people who are inactive and don't respond.

    I've seen other AMs asking nicely - they write to me personally asking me if there's anything I need to get active.

    If this guy drops people for not responding then he needs to learn some AM skills.
