If you’ve been following along at home, I added a new category for blog posts, “Kenny Responds to Scams.” For those of you who don’t know, I lost my job two months ago, and I’m still trying to look for a new one. In doing so, I’ve been spamming the hell out of Monster.com and Craigslist looking for anything to do, as I have mounds of bills about to pile up. I’m sure you all know, like email, Craigslist and Monster postings aren’t all real, some of them are scams.
Under this new category, I respond to obvious emails of people attempting to scam me. I already have two posts which fall under this category, and they’ve been recategoried as such. After the break, I’ll have the third email in this series.

Hello Alexia.I’m curious as to which company you represent. I see that you’re in HR, but for whom? I tried going to ultisoftware.info but it just redirects to a different URL and displays a blank page. The whois information for the domain shows that it’s “guarded” by Whoisguard. Why anyone would guard important domain contact information is beyond me.Also, who runs their corporate website off of Facebook (aside from Facebook)? You have a domain, as evident by your email and the link you provided. There are plenty of low cost providers of web presence if you’re unable/unwilling to host yourself. So please, give me valid contact information for your company, or don’t bother contacting me.
