I have been spammed for months by Cristian Troy asking me to join his site gayroughnecks.com. When I requested he remove me from his e-mailing list he sent me the following reply among other things, threatening to report me to the Federal Government. Here is the e-mail:

I don't work for you, or any other freeloading ###.

Get off the internet.

The world needs another freetard loser using it for free gay porn, and endangering children in the process, like it needs another George Bush.

Free porn sites endanger children. For proof Google the recent story in which Manhunt.net was directly responsible for a 15 child being sexually abused by another Manhunt user, who was an adult. That happened because sites like Manhunt, BigMuscle and Recon are socially irresponsible and refuse to adhere to Federal Law and age verify their members. Personally, we hope YOU use those sites so that the Justice Department can keep tabs on you. The lametards at ManHunt donated $10, 000 in hard currency in an attempt to get out of their responsibility to protecting kids online, and now they, and the other freetard sites are being monitored (and that means all the freeloading losers who frequent and support them are being scoped out too).

And don't even get us started on the fact that Manhunt, and Recon, charge a whopping $100 a year (actually, those losers at Manhunt just raised their price to $120!) for their lackluster, lame assed, profile sites when you do subscribe. If you weren't such a lecherous dog, you'd see that our site comes out to around $3 a month, and there's tons more to do than view stale profiles of other freetard losers like yourself.

Your email has been forwarded to the United States Department of Justice for further investigation in their ongoing efforts to enforce section 2257 of the United States Code and the Adam Walsh Child Protection Act.

Now, be a good boy, and use the URL located at the bottom of the email you're whining about to inactivate your account, then stay off my sites...ALL OF THEM.

Clearly this guy is mentally ill and his website should be shut down.

I received the identical letter as above, word-for-word, upon trying to unsubscribe from gayroughnecks outrageously excessive mailing list of spam.

But let's start at the beginning.

I'll admit to having bi-sexual and crossdressing interests, and sometimes surf free boards or sites ISO others sharing a similar interest. But I don't subscribe or "pay-out" to do that. There's far too much free ### out there available to have to pay for a shared interest.

I received an unsolicited email from GayRoughnecks, basically promising the WORLD in local bi/gay guys I could contact, completely free of charge. There was never any mention of subsciption or a fee.

So, out of curiosity, I opened the link. Before you can do ANYTHING else, you have to fill out a basic profile, and confirm it with your email address. Well? Normal, I guess, for most agencies looking out to protect themselves, so I did it.

But after the profile was filled out, and the email confirmed, I couldn't get ANYWHERE on their site without subscribing for a fee. Basically, I'd been HAD.

Well? I didn't go back there anymore, as it was a useless waste of time. However, email started showing up from GayRoughnecks, telling me I had messages in my mailbox. Thing is, you have to SUBSCRIBE to get into this mailbox! Of course, I declined, and ignored it.

The quantity of email from GR started escalating daily. First three or four, then 10 or more, hitting both my regular inbox and my Spam Folder.

On Thursday, 1/1, I opened my email to find 76 new messages. Mind you, this is an email addy where I usually find two or three new messages.

Upon opening my inbox, all 76 were the identical message from GayRoughnecks stating that I had been "CRUISED" by someone with the name of "CRHCPW", and that I had to log into GR to read the messages.

In addition to those 76 in my inbox, there were another 15 of the same message in my SPAM folder.

I deleted everything, and went into GR to try and find a "Contact" or "Unsubscribe" link. There are none.

The next day, I opened my email to find 162 of the SAME MESSAGE as I had the day before. I was pissed.

I finally responded to one of the CRHCPW messages, and I got the message back that the previous person wrote above - word-for-word.

This is a sick ###, and a site to be avoided at all costs. This guy, or organization needs to be shut down.

Report him to the IC3 federal government internet crimes office. If enough people do it this lunatic will be arrested and prosecuted.

I had the same problem with this website. I emailed a complaint to the FTC Bureau of Consumer Protection and within two weeks all the spam stopped. Hope that helps. That website master is clearly demented.

Thanks for all the postings guys, I just "unsubscribed" from the ripoff site too after reading your posts... hopefully he won't start up with me as well! If he does, I will definitely report him to the Feds!
If he was an intelligent businessman, he would either give guys a free trial period or at the very least, allow limited free services (such as allowing at least a few free emails per day etc) to see if we think the site is worth paying for.
From the tone of his email responses, he doesn't deserve our business, no matter how good his site is!!

Obviously he has no respect for anyone who might be a potential paying customer... He has turned me off Bigtime!

There are plenty more fish in the sea!! We surely don't need him!

I did not sign up for or ask for GayRoughnecks.com to start coming to my email address. I have no interest in it. However I have tried everything to stop these emails. Anyone have any suggestions?

Join and quit. Then they'll leave you alone. Obviously you viewed some porn sites to be put on their list or even friends.com or something like that.

Or just be an adult and delete the email. If you unsubscribe you let them know you're on an active email.

He did the exact same thing to me. He sent me a threatening email when I asked him to delete my profile. Now I get spammed all the time.

I am glad that it is a form letter threat they are sending out. I was startled and frightened by the response they sent to my e-mail requesting to unsubscribe. although I have done nothing involving child porn the insinuation is in the threat.
My e-mail to them was somewhat nasty -I called them spammers and told them to stop sending me all their crap. The letter he sent me was word for word the same as the ones sent to all the others here.

I contacted the ICANN and i received the same letter
from: Grizzly@BearTrapping.com

I don't work for you, or any other freeloading ###.

Get off the internet...

I contacted a BBB and this is the answer:
We are in receipt of your correspondence regarding the above mentioned company.
Unfortunately your complaint is outside the scope of the Better Business Bureau.
We suggest you contact an attorney to assist you in this matter.
We will keep your complaint on file for future reference.

Actually i filed many compaints about web content (i can prove them) and i had no problem with other BBB and the website deleted the content. This is the case of DATE.COM that didn't want to delete my pictures but after 30 days with the help of a BBB they deleted them.

Why Melissa Companick doesnt want to help me??

Thanks

This is one more email MELISSA COMPANICK sent me:

While the business is located in our service area, if they are using your likeness without your permission, that is a legal issue that must be settled through the legal system. BBB is a private, nonprofit organization with no legal powers.

That sorry-[censor] geek from Gay Roughnecks is a real piece of sh*t...there is no way to respond to his ridiculous e-mails, but I'm glad I read all of your complaints and comments, as I will now start using the government adresses provided to lodge a complaint. A few years ago, this low-life responded to my request to be removed with a similar letter as described above: something about child molesters, etc. He is likely a pedophile himself. I will initiate my contact with the government complaint site immediately. Thanks again to all of you who wrote about this. Rockford

I have never once seen any way whatsoever to be able to opt-out of communications from this sleazy company's website. I have emailed Mr. Troy on several occasions throughout the years, as well, in an effort to receive instructions on how to take care of the matter and have never gotten responses. I am going to lodge formal complaints with the agencies noted above and hope for the best outcome. Thank you all for your commentary and suggestions!
