Singer Spam?

Has anyone else received unsolicited e-mail from Singer after
contacting them about Ron? I specifically checked the "do not
contact me" options, and used a just-for-this-event e-mail
address when I sent my message. In fact in their canned
response, it quotes my message including:
"Interested in hearing about new products: No
Interested in periodic newsletters: No
Interested in promotions in my area: No"
So they can hardly claim I requested their "newsletter" spam,
which came today.
DANG! What a stupid thing to do! I really am loath to invoke
the Boulder Pledge against Singer, but.....

I haven't received any yet; I marked the same responses as you, Beverly. That's not to say I won't but if I do, I will yell. Emily

Same here. I checked No to everything. Haven't gotten a newsletter. If I do I'll let you know.
Ohdearohdearohdear........*sigh* The just keep digging that hole deeper. And if there really is one person not to spam on this group, it's our Beverly.

I have one final plea planned for Singer and I will be sure to mention the spam in it. I did finally late last week get a hold of the fellow that was my rep. He did tell me it was out of his hands but did agree to attempt, at least he told me he would, to get the higher up to speak with me. Said it may take until Monday (yesterday). Thanks again all for your support and I do apologize for getting you on a spam list.

Good luck!
Ron, no need for *you* to apologize! If Singer asks "Do you want .......... from us?" and then *ignores* the "NO, Dammit" answer provided, it's their own stupidity and loss.

Grrrrrrrr! This is either further evidence of a poor business plan, or some marketing droid on the loose. Odd indeed if I'm the *only* one they target. Either way, Singer will not be getting any more of my money. :-(

I got an email about some lower level Singer machines, noting they were available at WalMart. I didn't read it too closely, and can't really say that I got it as a result of my email about Ron because I have signed up for something from Singer.
I can live with this kind of spam. What is driving me nuts is the 'bot that is using part of my address to send out spam, and for which I get bounce notices and advices that my mail has been blocked for being spam. IT IS NOT EMAIL FROM ME!!!! A glance at the headers shows this clearly. This is the same kind of thing that happened about a year ago, and that time they got Kate's address, too.

The only other contact I have very had with Singer was when I was having problems with the XL5000, and e-mailed back and forth with support several times, but that was over a year ago, and nothing from them at all from the last support message until yesterday.
That is evidence of really poor mail admin somewhere. No one should EVER bounce to a "From:" address, they are too easily forged. :-(
