On November 30th I received promotion emails from email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, and email@example.com promoting Makism 3D Corp (MDDD). All three websites are owned / run by the same promoters. They do some email-only stock promotions but they also do some promotions that are larger in concert with hard mailers.
