It seems like companies harvest the contact information of newly registered domain names and bombard them with emails, text messages, and phone calls. These are a nuisance. I don’t know about you, but I also seem to get quite a bit of junk mail directed to my domain names.
Although I always throw out this junk mail before leaving the post office, I wanted to show you a very small batch of letters I received during the previous few days from when I last checked the mail box:
As you can see, they aren’t exactly directed to my domain names. The mailer must (incorrectly) assume that if I registered SendVegetables.com I must own a business called Send Vegetables. Same goes with the other letters.
It seems silly that the senders don’t have some sort of merge/purge in their database to remove mail sent to the exact same post office box.
This is just a very small sample of the junk mail I receive that target my domain name registrations. Fortunately for me, I don’t register a ton of names nor do I buy a ton of deleted domain names that appear to have a new registration date. I would imagine the people who register names regularly receive a lot more junk mail that I receive. Seems like a lot of wasted money, although I prefer this over the text message spam and spam phone calls.
