Your Help Would Be Appreciated - Spam

(Background checks shows these spammers have a lousy childish web site and in our opinion they charge way to much for their services. A further note is that this may be the same spammer who was busted Here. )

We need your help. Could you direct us to the person within your company who is in charge of sales? Your help would be greatly appreciated.

We are a marketing consulting firm that has a number of independent reps and distributors who are looking to represent a company like yours but do not know whom to contact. We have increased sales for other companies through qualified sales people that only get paid on results.

Our firm has over 45 years of experience in sales & marketing with a database of over 65,000 reps and distributors, from which we select, contact, screen and contract. We offer increased sales by providing motivated and experienced sales reps and distributors that know how to deliver fast results through their established customer base.

The name of a contact would be greatly appreciated so we can explain our program in more detail. If anyone in your organization would like an immediate electronic brochure, just email us. Phone calls are welcome.

Update April 2nd 2008 an email was sent to one of our harvested email addresses that stated:

"When we put our website "proact 2000" into google we get the following website. We have talked to google who gave us your website as who is listing this website with google. Statements made on this website are false and misleading. Prior reporting you to your hosting provider and our attorney, you need to remove this reference. We will give you 5 business days to to remove this reference on this website before we take action."


Obviously we have the right to say when we feel as though someone overcharges as well as bring up the fact they they SPAM people with harvested email addresses.

This is the lowest form of marketing and what amazes me is that on their web site that they claim that they:
"uses target marketing and not broadcast marketing to get your message across to your potential customers at a fraction of the cost of marketers and advertisers."

Our Determination: STOP SPAMMING! Don't interfere with our first amendment rights, and maybe you should build a better web site that gets found easier than this piece of crap blog.


Update 04-03-08 When asking the spammer further clarification via email about their email's statements to us and requesting the name and number of a person to speak to the response sent to us was:

Sent by: proact2000
Sent Via Email: proact2000@insightbb.com
Subject: Remove Me From Google Immediately

I do not have to defend myself. I will not carry on a dialog with you. You will hear from my attorney. Do not contact me again.

(Funny that a spammer asks me - someone filling my inbox wasting my time that I do not contact him!)

Great work on identifying and debunking this spammers' so-called business.!
I received this email May 13. I too found your site on Google, though his website's unprofessional nature does truly says it all. A whois search resulted in wh0at appears to be a home address and contact for Hency Bunner (consultdirect@aol.com) 812-248-0786. Google Maps' satellite pic shows quite the nice house, so business of a spammer must be going well. ;)

Thank you, for your post. I received their email on March 25, 2009 and was wondering if they were legit. When I went to their website, I figured it was spam.

I knew this was a Spam right away!
This Mr/MS Bunner claimed right up front "from looking at our Company's website(I have not had our website up for over three years)that they could help my company "increase our sales without increasing our overhead with independent sales reps" . I find this so amusing since if they really knew my business they would have realized I am an "Independent Sales Rep", who works with and sells Electronic Components to manufacturer's in Mexico.
What a Maroon!

I just got a SPAM from them today (9/9/2009). Evidently their 'targeted' list asks a competing manufacturer to represent another manufacturer.

We are a consulting firm that represents a client who manufactures of a new water repellent surface sealer that uses nano technology. Our client asked us to contact your company to see if you would be interested in becoming an independent sales rep for them.

You have to see this product to believe it. The surfaces can be concrete, brick, stucco and masonry structures. This is a water base product that protects against water, mildew, fungus, efflorescence, leaching, staining, premature ageing, scaling, spalling, and corrosion of reinforced steel and salt burst. This product penetrates deeply into the substrate and provides repellency into pores (2 - 200 nm), where other conventional film formers cannot penetrate. Here is the bottom line. Other film formers last an average of 2 - 5 years where this product lasts 20+ years.

If you are interested in becoming an independent sales rep for our client, please return by email your mailing address and phone / fax number. We will immediately mail you information on our client for your review. There are no products or services to buy if you wish to respond. Our client wishes to pay you a very generous commission for your services.

They're obviously still at it. No website...just email us. With a name like Hency, I guess it's tough to go out and get a real job.

Thanks for your efforts. Best regards, Tim

We paid this scammer $6000.00 After they promised to help our increase our sales and we got zero customers from them. The leads were from companies in other industries that had nothing to do with our business. This company also goes by the name of Sales Unlimited LLC as well as Proact 2000 their address is listed as 12123 Shelbyville Road Suite 100 - 173 Louisville, KY 40243 Phone 502-244-8924 Proact is a scam. I hope this post helps other companies to save themselves $6000.00 and stay away from Hency Bunner and his scam.
