Spam, Scam or the Real Deal?

Update: December 28th, 2010

I received an email from CEO Ventures requesting that I delete this blog.

I prefer to leave the information and just change anything that I wrote that has not been proven to be true. However, I will not be able to change information other people have posted.

It's a free country so feel free to investigate the company for yourselves.



it has been a couple of weeks since I last touched base and I wanted to check back in with you regarding The CMO Summit. We have a couple of openings in Groups 11 and 12 due to some retirements. I listed many of the existing members in these two groups at for your review and I am sure you would benefit from the ideas. Please let me know of your interest.

Mail back to decline further.

For my records in case any follow-up is needed, I show your contact information as:

I received yet another one of these today (have received four total). The guy is getting more desperate all the time. Sometimes they invite me to the Sales Summit, sometimes to the CIO Summit.

These emails are sent to an address that is, purposely, only posted to our web site. I ran a WHOIS on the domain ‘’ and discovered it was created rather recently: 07 Nov, 2007. The web site has a polished facade, but the address displays in the address bar as “” once you go there. Amateurish.

Googling turned up nothing on them at all other than blogs about the scam. Yet their web site has this scrolling list of big company names on the web site. Right.

Thanks for getting the word out.

I was also sent emails from the same Abernathy Road address with these names, which should be added to this blog so that others will find this on a search:

Mar 5:
Jordan Freedman

Feb 27:
Marcie Harruff

Feb 21 2008:
Alex Purnell of

Feb 13 2008:
Chris Taylor of

Dec 3 2007:
Chris Landon of

NEVER reply to emails that look "fishy" because they are probably "phishing".

Thank you all!

Whois tracks back to same person: Chris Jameson marietta, ga. Website looks polished and topics look legit. But IMO there's a better value in local networking. Email to me as follows:

At first sight I didn't believed in Farmville guides when I started to see them out there. I had never tried the game before but I could tell that it was no big deal. Come on, how much strategy and
tricks do you need to know in order to grow a virtual farm?

It can't be that much difficult. But since I already saw those guides online, I figured that I would give the game try and see what this Farmville thing is all about.

And I was really surprised as I was building my farm because it was more enjoyable than I could ever imagine! I liked it because there are lots of options and different decisions on the game. The more I played I realized that probably there was a lot of needed information in a guide, because there are many different ways of playing the game and achieving different results.

I was going fine on my own way, but I was getting more and more curious to know what I could be missing. When I was at level 14 I was having some difficulties to advance, so I decided to give the Farmville Guide a try. I bought Farmville Secrets, quite recent and up to date guide, up to the latest additions on the game. I wasn't expecting too much, but this guide simply blew me away.

In no time I was already the Cream of the Crop, a level 24 farmer with a Big Family Farm expansion and dozens of neighbours! The tips on the guide helped me way more than I could ever imagine.

I guess there's a lot more to the virtual farming than it meets the eye.

Actually, I never saw any neighbour or other Farmville player achieving the level of success I am at.

I recommend you to pick up a copy of Farmville Secrets if you are interested in getting the most out of your Farmville experience.

Depending on what your destination is and how long you plan on making your trip for, the airfare may be the priciest expense. Because of this, finding a great deal on the airfare becomes extremely important. The more money you are able to save on the plane tickets, the more money you will be able to use toward your actual vacation.

When it comes to purchasing your airline tickets, the sooner the better. This goes for basically anywhere you plan on traveling. When you purchase a ticket sooner, lets say several months before the trip, there will be less of a demand, which will drive the price of the ticket down. However, on the flip side, as the day of the desired flight approaches, the flight's seats will begin to fill up. As fewer and few seats become available, the higher the demand will be, which will drive the price up. Booking the flight in as far advance as you can may save you hundreds of dollars in the long run.

Flying during the middle of the week is generally the cheapest time to fly. Fewer people travel during mid week than on Friday through Sunday. If at all possible, fly out on a Tuesday or Wednesday. You may actually find prices significantly less expensive on the Wednesday than the Sunday of the same week.

Looking for airfare online will probably be your best be at securing the cheapest possible flight price. There are multiple booking agencies which specialize in finding the cheapest airfare. However, to save time, go to, which offers a comprehensive flight search option. Bing will search other travel sites (Expedia, Priceline, Hotwire, etc.) and display the cheapest flight form each site. From here you will be able to decide which website offers the best deal.

Students can often find discounted airfare by visiting This is the Student Travel Association, and it can sometimes find less expensive airfare for the traveling student. This isn't always the case, but it doesn't hurt to look.

These jokers are now trying to threaten me, and unrelated employers, with a lawsuit.

Just to say that I received one of these too and they chased me for a response today. I work at a University but they got the name of my Faculty wrong, although I do work in training. Thanks for posting your blog. The website does look very good but it does smell of scam to me..

It's amazing how many bloggers do not check their blogs for junk postings like the one with the person asking for a loan.

I get the same spam email to email addresses that were invented by spammers that forged my domain. These scammers probably got spam from the fake address when my domain was forged and just added those "From" addresses to their spam list.
