I'd never heard of them until the past 24 hours - over which period I've received 1 SPAM message for each of my 3 personal email accounts.

I've gotten seven spam emails from them. This does not make me want to work with them (the opposite, as a matter of fact).

Other than that, I haven't heard a thing about them.

They spammed me as well, 11 times to be exact all of which I reported. I agree with Lesli and would avoid using any company that likes to SPAM, just because they SPAM....

Yup, I just got SPAM from them today.

They seem to be from Hong Kong. The company that is.

Did you guys only get an email from them after visiting their website?

I'll not visit this website just in case

They only sent email to my addresses associated with any domain names (whois contact), therefor I believe they're gathering email addresses from the whois database.

Hmm... well, the spam my email that is posted on whois database, so I think RMF is right.

Nope, I never visited global bill before the SPAM.

I've never visited their site, and some of the emails came to Scribehost's domain contact - so, yep, they're scouring WHOIS records.

Some of the emails came in to the sales email address, though.

Yep, I got spammed under the disguise of a Newsletter/Ezine.
