    I received this email today....really don't like the solicitation - would this be considered spam?

    Hi. My name is Karen Taub. My firm is a refinery in business 45 years. We have a division that caters to the public and we have had trememdous success in offering our gold BUYING service in small gatherings. We recently did an event in conjunction with a Pampered Chef representative and it was a win-win for both her and ourselves. We paid her guests CASH for their unwanted gold and they used it to buy products.

    We are interested in having someone consult with us and I was hoping you might be interested or know someone. COuld we speak when you have a free minute? 914-299-9202

    Thanks

    Don't you have to be a member in order to send a PM or an email like that?

    I didn't get it. You must be special. ;) Still, it's a misuse of our contacts here at CS. Thanks for letting Greg know. Did any of you respond?

    Many spammers join forums like this to use the forums themselves or the contact lists for their solicitations.

    Kris, I figured that's what happened, which is why I first posted a general comment about it that didn't point fingers. I apologize if I embarrassed you.
