Spam from China: Are DOPA employees completely ‘dope’ ?

Directnic

DOPA continues the lowlife practice of sending unsolicited email to domain owners, a euphemism for spam.

The Chinese company ignores the protocol of voluntary inclusion to mailing lists, and instead emails their sales pitch to email addresses harvested from the WHOIS of domains.

We have covered the spamming practice of DOPA on several occasions. The most recent spam emails from DOPA are below:

Hi,

How are you?

Have you kindly check my email? Hope they are workable for you.

Regret that we havent received any information from you.I would be much appreciate for your any comment about our 15% revenue increase proposal.No matter if it is a positive answer,It’s a great help for us to meet your requirements.

Waiting for your favorable reply.

Best Regards,
Wendy

That’s right, Wendy. You received no information from us, because we do not respond to fucking spammers like DOPA that don’t end their email harassment.

Then another email that regurgitates the same old crap:

Hi,
This is Katrina from Dopa, which is an online traffic monetization service provider.

As knowing that you have some typos domains are parked, are you satisfied with the revenue that you get now?

Parked at Dopa, it will bring you at least 10% revenue increase and Usually 1000 vistors generate US$3-20.

Wish we can have a chance to bring you more revenue from domain parking! For details, pls contact me!

Best regards

Katrina

We have zero “typo domains” and Katrina clearly pulls that out of her ass.

With this one, it seems they now offer a 10% increase in revenue instead of 15% – all within a few days of each other. So not only it’s spam, it sounds as a scam as well.

Are Wendy and Katrina from DOPA.com two imbecile spammers, or just fake names used to attract customers to DOPA services?

At this time, we aren’t sure, but we’ll continue to expose the spamming practices of DOPA.com.

    As an example: isn’t 109 a typo of 100? 😉

    Agreed though. I get them from Facebook, LinkedIn and e-mail. Have you noticed them taking up the social networks as well?

  2. My personal experience with DOPA is a bit different.
    Got an unsolicited email once with their offer, I replied saying we were not interested bc so far we don’t have huge traffic from China on our domains, we could consider it in the future if Chinese traffic increases substantially.
    A couple of Dopa managers, Anne and Nina, are in my LinkedIn contacts, and one in my Skype contacts.
    Well, since my reply I haven’t got any more email, message or spam from them.
    Maybe courtesy can help … 🙂

    Andrea – I refuse to give a spammer the benefit of knowing who I am, when I was included on their list without my consent in the first place. Let them figure it out.

    Spamming is the absolute lowest point on the Internet food chain along with hacking.

  4. “I refuse to give a spammer the benefit of knowing who I am”
    That’s ok, it’s your choice. But I guess they keep emailing you bc you didn’t reply even with a simple “remove”.

    “Spamming is the absolute lowest point on the Internet food chain along with hacking.”
    I think absolute lowest point on the Internet food chain are hacking, commercial malpractices, frauds, pump-and-dump schemes and similar deceiving (also marketing) practices, also fueled by poor regulations/sanctions in some…

    Andrea – Again, you’re assuming things. I didn’t say I did not contact them, but they don’t seem to understand that what they are doing is despicable. Sorry to hear that you’re connected to them on social media and even professionally on LinkedIn.

    So if you are ok with being added without your consent to mailing lists that you’d have to manually request removal from, let me know.

    Spammers that bombard email addresses reserved for emergency and service contact between a domain registrant and the Registrar, *are* by far at the lowest point of the Internet pyramid.

  6. That’s my experience with DOPA.
    In my case a reply was enough to stop them from emailing me unsolicited.
    You’d be surprised to know that some of them are connected on LinkedIn to some of the best domain professionals, just check …
    As far as they don’t spam us, I have no prob in adding them.
    I hate spam as well, I had to remove people (including some unsuspected “professionals”, sales rep, etc) from LinkedIn for that.
    IMHO frauds, comm malpractices, hacking, etc are way worse.

  7. DomainGang says:

    Andrea – I’ve also covered the case of the “domain broker” who is also well-connected, and spams domain owners to extract their domains on the cheap. I’m sure he’s an excellent father and friend etc. but to me, a third party that did not wish to be bugged ad nauseam with crap, he’s a douche.

    I am not the only one with complaints about Dopa and their spamming tactics by the way.
