When I open my email and see a subject line:
“Subject: you’re out of excuses” ,
I am a bit taken aback. Not one of my customers, associates, vendors or my friends have ever sent an email with that subject line. My Mother may have yelled that a few times when I was in my teens but she does not use a computer so I was fairly certain it was not from her. The sender was “Kevin”. I have 2 customers and one vendor with that name.

BUT No – this was another WTFWTT SEO or get rich quick scheme… or a phishing exercise.

Bottom line – if you are considering doing business with www.kevinssocialmediatips.com I would think very hard about why?

Hey,

I’m tired of your excuses.

The #1 reason why you haven’t succeeded
online may be because you’ve never had
an opportunity like this:

And they are hosted with HostDime.

It does make me wonder how a large hosting company will allow bogus whois information to pass muster.
