Hmmmm.... sounds like a great way to acquire valid email address - TO SPAM!
Who says emailremove.org is a government operation? Have you done any investigation?
I did some very quick and easy checking. A WhoIs returned the following information about emailremove.org:
Name:Eleventh Street VenturesDoesn't sound very governmental to me. So I Googled it, and guess what came up as the third hit - after the site itself and a site ranking link - a link to a spam domain blacklist site. And guess who's name is on the list - emailremove.org!
Organization:Eleventh Street Ventures
Street1:ATTN insert domain name here
Street2:care of Network Solutions
The web page has NO other links, has no security certificates, no privacy statement. Yea, I'd say this is a PHISHING SITE!
This is a MUST NOT!!!
I did similar checking on www.email-remover.com and although they seem to be a legit operation. Personally I'd stick with a better known company.
Just because a Web page says it's been around since 1998 and has graphics of awards doesn't make it legit. I'd feel a LOT BETTER if all those award graphics linked to the awards themselves - not so hard to do (and those pics are hard to read too!).
I recognized one of those "awards" as a ZDNet award, but guess what? I couldn't find it on ZDNet. I did find it on CNet's Download.com, and it has good user reviews, but still....
I'm not challenging the veracity of what they say, just trying to point out some easy to avoid social engineering techniques for preying on people!
So be careful people. Not all is always as it appears.
