Dear Robert Allen and Bob Gatchel.. please shove it where the sun don't shine.

I guess it was naive of me to think that I wouldn't see any more Bob Gatchel spam, but this great big steaming turd of a spam ended up in my inbox promotion some other crap.

subject    [Redacted], Your Mining Gold with Ebay CD At Absolutely No Cost From Robert Allen
 Hi [Redacted],

Robert Allen here with some AWESOME news!  I’m very excited to tell you that my good friend, mentor and online marketing expert - Bob Gatchel - just completed a brand-new program that could show you how to explode your income! 
Do you remember me telling you how I made $94,000 in 24 hours, sitting at home on my computer?  Well … it was Bob Gatchel who made that possible!  He’s a genius when it comes to making money on the Internet. 
No I don't.. I remember someone telling me that they were watching 2Girls1Cup when their mom walked in. Was that you?

Well, Bob has done it again! 
Whatever happened to Britney Spears?

This time he’s revealing how anyone can make $300 to $3,000 a month “mining for gold” on eBay. Ebay?  Yes, Ebay!   You see … due to the recent financial crisis & this “new economy” - Ebay online auctions are in SUPER demand!  This massive demand has created a virtual “online gold rush” … and fortunes are being made because of it!   Bob reveals exactly how anyone can capitalize on this MASSIVE trend right now … even if you never participated on Ebay before!
Wow.. Bob has discovered what people have been doing on eBay for years. Buying stuff that's underpriced and reselling it for a profit! It's not as if you can just Google for ebay tips.. oh wait, maybe you can.

And here is the best part – he’s literally GIVING away this information to anyone who wants it!

That’s right; he’s going to send you the “Mining Gold with eBay” Audio program absolutely free.  I’m talking NO cost, not even shipping and handling. 
So it's a free lunch, is it?

Simply call 1-888-876-1988 and you’ll be connected with my staff that will confirm your address and rush out a copy of this audio to your door.  It’s that easy.

No thanks.

Here are a few things you can expect to learn from this amazing audio program:

• Expert secrets to making a Fortune on eBay
• How to research and analyze your competition to increase profits
• How to create a massive bidding frenzy, every time
• The art of sniping…to get what you want at the price you need
• Perfect your auction timing to maximize earnings
• How to create raving eBay fans and get 100% positive feedback
• A secret technique all sellers must know that can literally make you thousands
• And much, much more
What about "there's no such thing as a free lunch"?
So, if you’d like harness the power of eBay to add another stream of income to your life, just wait until you learn all of these incredible, cutting edge techniques!  And, the best part is that you can do this without spending ANY money upfront.
Wait... what do you mean about "without spending any money upfront"? That's not quite the same as "free" is it? That kind of implies that you send it to me for free and I have to pay for it later.
Again, all you have to do is call 1-888-876-1988 and tell my staff where you want me to send this incredible audio training program.   Don’t miss out … you’ll kick yourself if you don’t take advantage of this offer!
Dear Robert and staff: please take your incredible audio training program and send it up your arse.

To Your Massive Success!

Robert G. Allen

Well, at least you managed to include valid unsubscribe details rather than the last Bob Gatchel crap you sent. But you know, I don't think that I'm going to confirm my email address by clicking your so-called "unsubscribe" link.

Incidentally, in the US the BBB rates this lot with a miserable D+ rating  on a scale of A to F. Hardly inspires confidence, does it?

OK, spam isn't exactly uncommon, and get-rich-quick MLM schemes are a bit like the dog shit that you sometimes tread on while out walking. This particular piece of spam caught my eye:

"Bob" has made a couple of newbie mistakes here - firstly, the "Reply To" address is invalid as there is no such domain as "ewiadvisory.com" and he forgot to include his postal address, which makes in non CAN SPAM compliant.

InternetHomeBusinessExposed.com is the sort of name that almost begs to ripped apart. Hosted along with hundreds of other crummy MLM sites on, the domain has private registration details, which is a shame. Not to worry, a little bit of digging turns up a valid address of:

Robert Gatchel
16 Shire Lane
Port Deposit, Maryland 21904
United States

There's also a valid "reply-to" email address you can use of bobgatchel@gmail.com.

There you go Bob, fixed that for you.

Interestingly, it turns out that Bob is a bit of a stickler for rules, which is kind of odd when you consider his non CAN SPAM compliant message. Page 73 of this planning document shows Bob objecting to his neighbour installing a mobile home on their property because it broke the deed restrictions. OK Bob, that's fair enough.. but just remember this next time you send out spam.

So what is InternetHomeBusinessExposed.com? Well, it just forwards to another site at getthescoopabout.com (again, anonymised) and it's just pushing some crappy seminar. But what are they selling?

A little more digging finds that Bob is affiliated with some outfit called the Enlightened Wealth Institute which has a non-too-pretty report at the BBB. He is also affiliated with some scientifically unproven dietary supplement from Yoli Incorporated. A quick Google of "Yoli" shows an awful lot of people pushing Yoli as an MLM rather than something you would want to put in your body.

Now, excuse me Bob.. I have some dog shit to clean up.
