Are you as Realtors getting bombarded with emails from previous real estate agents for MLM or internet opportunities

   I wonder if anyone has this same problem?

   I keep getting from 5 to 10 emails daily from people(ex-real estate agents) claiming that they have replaced their real estate profession income with income from internet  or MLM oppotunities , and make claims that they are getting checks for as much as $1000 to $5000 a week or more.

   I had clicked on a link ....just for curiosity sake...filled out the online form to view a video presentation of this fantastic opportunity!!! not more than 10 MINUTES AFTER I CLICK OFF THE WEBSITE I GET A PHONE CALL FROM THE PERSON THAT SENT ME THE EMAIL TO ASK IF I HAS ANY QUESTIONS AND IF I WAS READY TO MAKE SERIOOUS MONEY.

   I would like to get the guys that set up the website and advertise this thing to set up a campaign like that for me.

   Let me know what kind of experience you all have had that is similar to mine or if you are getting the same emails.... do we belong to a email list that can be bought?

 thanks for your imput and thoughts

Thankfully my spam detector seems to be keeping me free of most of these. It's the constant phone calls that are more annoying.

The answer is yes you belong to an email list that can be bought, if you have a website with your email posted on it there is software that searches for these and adds them to lists.  I also have been contacted by many MLM's, you can always see them coming.  If they lead off with "We're endorsed by Donald Trump" or "Do you keep your business options open?"  You know they're pitching you.

I hate those emails too. I too got some emails like this. MLM/Pyramids marketing is really a ripoff. I wonder if they really do not understand or they just want to rip people off.

It is hard to avoid this kind of email. These people do not care if it is a spam at all. All they care is if they could pick the right person to rip off.

Yes, I get those e-mails and they go right into the spam box.
