I received the following email from ePHOTOzine saying that:

Quote:To celebrate the launch of GraphicStock.com, they are giving away 7 days of complimentary access to download anything you want at no charge:

You can download anything you want on GraphicStock.com for 7 days (20 images per day). This includes icons, backgrounds, textures, vectors and many more graphical elements.

Then I said to myself that is a good promotion. I finished the first step of registration of giving details. Then in the second step asked me my bank details which I STOPPED.
Not sure what was the whole idea behind sending this money grabbing promotion by ePHOTOzine email?
If by any chance, the editor of ePHOTOzine see this, PLEASE stop sending this nonesense stuff to my email address. Thanks.

You probably don't need any help accomplishing that. I suspect that this is the kind of message you won't receive anymore if you go to your Settings, Website Options, and next to Marketing newsletter change 'Subscribed' to 'Not subscribed', and then click Save changes.

Sadly in this case, Kombizz will have got to the point where he entered his email address.


They're coming. Wink

Ok, Kombizz before complaining on an open forum, about having to read an email, perhaps you should read it again and note the following.

I think the issue here is that some people will want ro receive sales offers made by epz and its advertisers and many will by implication assume an element of trust.

On this occasion, as in the video blocks offer - it is not an exclusive offer and even if you pull out of the offer once you realise that you will have to give your card details they will plague you forever more via email.

It might be an idea for ePhotozine to require firms that use EPZ's e-mail advertising possibilities to indicate in their communications to the members exactly what is required from them in order to accept the offer. For instance, 'If you accept this offer, you will be required to enter your contact and credit card details.'
