Vocus Inc aka You’ve Been Blacklisted For PR Spam–Just Freaking Go Away

Allen Harkleroad


Tired-of-Vocus-PR-SpamI am up to my eyeballs sick with Vocus Inc’s public relations (PR) spam. I’ve tried to be nice and unsubscribe our company from hundreds of PR release that Vocus sends us. We've never asked for or requested to receive any press releases from Vocus Inc (aka Yet I and others continuously receive release about freaking window blinds, software we have no interest in and countless other PR pitches. If I were a client of Vocus I would be asking some hard questions at just who exactly signed up to get releases. I wouldn’t doubt for one minute that Vocus buys email lists from questionable companies that harvest email addresses from the Internet (aka Spam harvesters).

It seems to get worse every week. It is almost as if we’ve been added to ever blasted PR list that Vocus blasts out to unsuspecting recipients. Well I’ve had it. Vocus and emails are now auto-deleted as soon as they come in. If by chance any future emails get through I will consider litigation as my next step to put a stop to the crap Vocus keeps trying to cram into our inboxes.

In fact any future PR crud from Vocus or gets through we will start publically humiliating the client involved as well as Vocus. So bring it on you clueless spamming PR hacks, I have something for you and your clients.

If you ever send another press release to anyone at Designer Today Magazine, Statesboro Business Magazine, FMD Consumer, Smarterotti or any other website we own, you’ll be the laughing stock of the PR industry, of that I guarantee.
