Any of you who are in my GMail contact list will have just received an email from me “inviting” you to join me on the ‘social network that is sweeping the globe’ – QueChup.

As much as I love you all, I didn’t send you this message. In fact, I cancelled my QueChup account less than 30 minutes after joining. That was three days ago. But that didn’t stop QueChip from spamming my contact list today.

And it gets even better. If you click the “unsubscribe” link in the email, it takes you to the registration page to sign up! How’s that for a CAN-SPAM violation?

In most cases, I feel like it’s pointless to do anything to fight spammers. But I’m so mad about this particular one that I’m soliciting your help to help me bring these guys down, and fast.

Here’s what you can do. Click on this link to the FTC Complaint Form. Submit QueChup as an Internet fraud and identity theft criminal. Maybe if we can be half as effective as QueChup at spreading the word about their site, we can shut them down.

Also, here is all the contact information of QueChup’s parent company,
