Firstly, the email was send to a scraped address from the website of the Slimeware Corporation and isn't any sort of opted-in address at all. The address of "75 Glandovey Terrace, Newquay, Cornwall TR8 4QD" simply does not exist, and the telephone number of 0843 289 4698 appears to belong to a completely unrelated company. I very much doubt there is anybody called "Emily Norton" involved, and there is no company in the UK with the name "Prospect Direct".

The website prospectdirect.org itself carefully hides any contact details, the WHOIS details are anonymous, the domain was created on 2012-07-19 and is hosted on (Netrouting / Xeneurope , Netherlands). There are no contact details on the website and there is no identifying information at all.. it hasn't just been omitted by accident, the whole thing has been left meticulously clean by a professional spamming outfit.

I would recommend giving these spammers a wide berth given their catalogue of lies.

Update: filling in the request form gets a response from Emailmovers Ltd (emailmovers.com / emvrs.co). More on them soon...
