    AffiliateBot spam?
    Earlier this month, I checked out the AffiliateBot web site, which left me with the conclusion that the company might be working with some sleazy merchant partners.

    Today, I received the following "boilerplate" email which moves them down on my to-do list from "probably not" to "never."

    I did a quick check at their web site, and of course there's no hint of any address or telephone number. The WHOIS record lists a Los Angeles street address for "BizCentral Inc." and a phone number in area code 302 (new to me - it turns out to be a Delaware area code). The WHOIS contacts use a .my suffix (Malaysia).

    Did other folks here get this exact same email? Or is this actually a genuine, personalized email which was simply not written very well?

    I got one, but it was different.

    Hi Michael,

    I am interested in providing you with some new affiliate offers from
    our network I noticed that you have quite a
    number of merchants listed on your site. Would you like to try the biggest asian fashion niche store.

    Also, we have a host of Dating Programs, Loans, and others.

    I can work with you closely on our programs.

    Hope to hear from you.


    (name removed, but a different person)

    ps: I read your copy on calculating EPCs and would likely implement
    something like that on our network soon. Perhaps we'll be the only
    network with a different angle on EPCs.
