Received a weird e-mail about a business opportunity for RFD members

Hey Guys,

Here is an e-mail I received about a business opportunity. I guess they want to give me some free products for me to post their products on RFD. What a shame !

Be carefull. And on top of that, if you participate in this scheme, I’m pretty sure this can get you banned.

Don’t fall for it..

Hello Max,

This is Ian. Marketing Manager at GETONE. Our company is the third retailer with so many best sellers on Amazon.

Are you SpykeYs from the forum of We really appreciate your achievements in sharing valuable and helpful deals there. What we really wish is to set up a long-term partnership with you. Are you interested in knowing more details?

Looking forward to hearing back from you soon.

Best Regards,

It's not that uncommon these days for businesses to try to recruit RFD users to post deals on their behalf. We've banned many retailers because of this. Can you please forward the original e-mail to

Yes, unfortunately because of the hack/security breach all these people have access to our email addresses and can contact us there instead of via PM
When your mind says give up, hope whispers "one more try"
Never say never
