If you have been receiving spam E-mail that appears to come from us, rest assured that it was not sent from Appletree MediaWorks, LLC. Recently, we have been the victim of a “Joe Job” attack. If you received one of these E-mails, then you are yet another victim in the war against spam.
Appletree Mediaworks, LLC does not engage in spamming, and is an active participant in the fight against those who do.
A “Joe Job” is the name given to an attack whereby a spammer sends unsolicited E-mail which has been masked to appear as if it came from somebody else. The spammer is then able to send spam without taking any of the responsibility for their actions, sending fallout instead to the victim. Unethical companies may also engage in these tactics in an attempt to defame their competition.
Whatever the reason, I’m sure you can agree that it needs to stop. This is why we are actively investigating these attacks to find out where they are coming from. Once we have discovered the culprit, we plan to prosecute to the fullest extent of the law.
