Default Weird Email...SPAM?

While I was looking at my email today, I noticed one from Apriori Beauty to me. It was asking me to forward to 25 of my email buddies, and we'd both get $25 if they them did the same. Who thought up this little gem of a spam idea, I wonder?

Not a cool thing to do in my book,

Hmmm...sad.

aB is doing a promotional this month that allows people to forward the email to 25 people and in return they receive a $25 gift card. I understood it to be more of a tool to send it to people that were already interested in aB but I'm sure there are some that are using it to spam. I personally haven't forwarded the email to anyone because I didn't want it to be taken that way. Thanks for confirming my decision and sorry that happened to you!

Hi, UltraSkinPro,

Your email address must have been on someone's list as being interested
in Apriori Beauty at one time.

My team have chosen not to use the email tool as well.

We are building our businesses with the Product Upgrade promo
that was started last month, where anyone can exchange their
old skin care product in exchange for a full sized Apriori Beauty
product.

Thanks for your responses. I have never made any inquiry into this company. The alternative thought is that someone is harvesting my email address, and just assuming that just because I am in skincare, I would welcome this unsolicited promotion.

A genuine "thank you" to all of you who are not promoting your businesses with this godawful email.

May your businesses flourish,

UltraSkinPro

Nope! Not Nondy!!

She is a bonafide 150% Nuskin girl!

Someone snagged her email address. Very common online unfortunately.

Weird, I totally didn't take the "Email It Forward" Campaign this way....I didn't see it as spam but more of just another tool for building your business.

If one is not affiliated with the Apiori company, and is with another company, and receives unsolicited email, it is considered spam. Now if YOU are with Apriori, I could see where this would not bother you...

Have a great day everyone,

I got the same email and just deleted it. So not interested in sending out emails to my friends and even more not interested in another skin care company. I love mine!!! I don't consider this a great marketing tool.
