I received this SPAM email below from YELP.

In the subject line it says: “Rahul V. would like to share Yelp reviews with you”

1. I never heard of Rahul V.
2. The email was sent to a private domain registration email address I own.
3. “Rahul V” STOLE my email address possibly using email harvesting software
4. Sent SPAM below without my permission

I have filed a complaint to the YELP’S legal department about this abuse. If anyone else has had similar SPAM sent to them and if you know why someone is stealing emails and using them to recommend YELP, please contact me.

If you received a similar email from someone you don’t know you should also file a complaint to YELP’S legal department.

Have you heard about Yelp yet?

It’s the fun way to find, review and talk about what’s great – and not so great – in your neighborhood and beyond, everything from restaurants and bars to doctors and yoga instructors.

Check it out: (there was more stuff in the URL which I removed so no own uses the link to give this SPAMMER credit for recommending YELP’S website)

See you on Yelp,

– Rahul
