    Default Jesse Edwards - Propulse Video Spam

    Has anyone else had unsolicited emails from someone claiming to have gone to the same university as you, who wants to help your business with a video?

    ...or is it just me?

    Yes, but can't remember the name. I deleted it.

    I doubt anyone here went to Mexborough college.

    I just got this email from The CoFounder

    I find the space in the website name in his signature disturbing, to say the least (propulsevideo.- SPACE -com)

    I just reviewed your LinkedIn profile so I thought I would contact you by email directly.
    I would like to discuss with you as we make explainer corporate videos for companies from the Information Technology and Services sector.
    We have helped some of them stand out and raise their target audience’s interest in less than 2 minutes.
    Would you be available sometime this week for a quick 15-minute call to discuss how we could help you do the same?
    P.S. Here is an example of a video made for your sector:

    [some useless YouTube video]

    Kind regards,

    Xxxxxxx
    Co-Founder

    I'm not a contractor: I have a permanent post in part of the public sector where "explainer" corporate videos are hardly relevant. I got an email just like that last August and ignored it; then it was followed up with a "Did you forget my email?" email. So I responded saying it's not relevant to my employment and please don't contact me again.

    Six months on and I've just today got another one. I'm now laying the law down heavy-handedly in response and we'll see what happens. Given that this thread came up with a search for "Propulse video" and Google filled in "spam", I suspect that it's not an uncommon problem.

    Brexiteers remind me of religious fanatics, only faith, no facts.

    Sounds like nonsense to me.

    WTFH would be lucky to get a 'F' in CSE Woodwork let alone a degree.
