Lending Tree mortgage and home improvement SPAM

I get hundreds of emails every day and most of them are SPAM.  Lately I’ve been getting a lot of spam for home improvements such as window replacements.  So I recently started to opt out of marketing lists.

Under the advertisement in the SPAM with the subject “Find Licensed and Certified Window Installation Pros In Your Area” they state:

This is a commercial message and may be recurring.

I clicked to unsubscribe and unlike “good” mailing lists, they don’t automatically insert the spammed e-mail address:

I hate Lending Tree with a passion because just like LowerYourBills.com, they primarily get mortgage leads through false promises and misrepresentations.

I looked up Lending Tree to find their phone number:

LendingTree, LLC is a Marketing Lead Generator and is a Duly Licensed Mortgage Broker, as required by law, with its main office located at 11115 Rushmore Dr., Charlotte, NC 28277, Telephone Number 866-501-2397.

They patented how to SPAM people?

I called Lending Tree at 866-501-2397 and the only options were to refinance, etc.  I was transferred to Adam and he was rather polite and helpful.  I questioned why I was getting their SPAM as I definitely never opted in with this email address and he explained that they get email addresses from other sources and he thinks it’s perfectly legal to spam me until I opt out.

When I mentioned “Done Right” Adam was able to determine where the spam came from.

I provided Adam with my non profit as well as trado and bayhouse email addresses and hopefully I’ll never get their spam again.

Maybe now I can get some real work done.
