WEBTEMPLATES2000.COM SPAM

Below is a copy of a SPAM I received today promoting WEBTEMPLATES2000.COM.  I have received several emails during this past year promoting a similar offer.  I’m FED UP with it and I’m exposing this SPAM here on this site

This email is in violation of United States Code Title 47, Section 227(a)(2) (B) CAN SPAM Laws on several counts;
 
1. Sender somehow obtained my WHOIS registration email address, and used it without my permission. 

2. Sender sent unsolicited SPAM without my permission

In the email below, sender states “Receiving this e-mail because you registered to receive 0ffer from one of our partners” 
 
THAT IS A LIE!
 
I never signed up to receive ANYTHING using my whois contact email address.

They also are using a domain, aweberer.com in the email below which looks almost identical to Aweber.com, a respected bulk email company.  This appears to be a attempt to FOOL people into thinking Aweber sent the email when in fact, they did not. 
 
Person who sent this SPAM had NO RIGHT obtaining my whois email address without my permission and sending SPAM and should have his accounts TERMINATED!  

Unless you specifically opt in to a list and request information NO ONE has the right to send you advertisements of any kind… THAT IS THE LAW.   Violation of the CAN SPAM Law is a Felony Offense punishable by up to $250,000 in fines AND up to 5 years in prison PER offense.

 WEBTEMPLATES2000.COM and other sites has been sending traffic to HITECTEMPLATES.COM.  They claim to have a “anti-spam” policy on their website.  I have sent them NUMEROUS SPAM complaints and it appears they have done nothing, because the sites I complained about are still operational and they are STILL sending traffic to HITECTEMPLATES.COM.

If you received SPAM from WEBTEMPLATES2000.COM, please send a copy using the “Contact Us” form and we’ll post it here to compond the evidence we’re gathering.

UPDATE:  Someone else received a copy of this same spam.  Here’s the copy they forwarded;
