A Coldwellbanker Day in Hell

It’s a sad fact of life that while the United States, Europe and many other countries are fighting to control unsolicited email (Spam) through legislation, a great many others are doing absolutely nothing and provide a legal safe haven for the spammers.


Would you buy a Timeshare Hotel from Ahmed Eltahawy?

I’m particularly annoyed by the activities of a real-estate company with offices in Egypt, http://www.coldwellbanker-eg.com/coldwellbanker/nu/eng/index.asp and their sales representative a Mr Ahmed Eltahawy - ahmed.eltahawy@coldwellbanker-sharm.com who persists in bombarding me with offers to buy timeshare units at a hotel in Sharm El Sheikh City. How they found my name, I don’t know but I can see they are pushing their bulk email through an address wezyeltahawy@yahoo.com

I'm sure that Coldwellbanker are a reputable international company who would be shocked by the unrestricted use of spam marketing and I warned Mr Eltahawy by email that if he continued spamming me with large emails containing multiple JPEG photos of the hotel that I would retaliate by drawing the public’s attention to his company in an unfavourable manner. He hasn’t and I have in this short column.

It’s even worse to have this kind of rubbish sent indiscriminately when one’s on the road picking up my email on a smart phone. It costs me money and this I resent even more.

Coldwellbanker and Mr Eltahawy are now on my junk email list and I do hope that anyone foolish enough to do business with this company will review their unethical marketing efforts in judging their overall integrity. It may be legal to spam us from Sharm el Sheikh but let’s push back and tell them that they can’t expect us to do business with them if they treat us like gullible fools.
