Really? I can’t believe this is even a real subject but let us begin ….
I had a friend who I won’t name but she asked me about some emails she was getting about not one but two of her ex’s searching for her. She wanted to know if this was true.
I wanted to give myself a face-palm when she asked me this question. This is not a stupid girl. She has a master’s degree in business, a great high paying job, blah blah. So why in the world would she really ask me this question?
So without laughing at her to much I thought I would try my best to actually address the issue. The first thing one has to ask them is, how does this site in question know WHO you’ve dated? Does this site employ psychics? Even if they may somehow magically know who one of your ex-boyfriends are, how do they know you are the person associated with that email address? I live two blocks from a lady with the exact same name as me. How crazy is that? Two people, exact same names in every way, same city, same zip code – so how do they know the person they are searching for isn’t her and not me?
Do you see where I am going with this?
This email advertisement about your ex searching for you is full of poo. They are playing into your own psychological needs and hidden desires to try and trick you to visit their site.
So any site who would employ sales tactics like this, would you really want to do business with them? Who knows what other under-handed things they may do like selling your name and other personal information.
Avoid sites like these at all costs.
I don’t care if they have a fancy commercial on TV or a very interesting looking email. Nobody knows who is searching for *YOU*. It’s a scam. And any site that is willing to use deceptive marketing tactics will probably do other things shady as well.
