Lost Highway Media are a design and development company in Arlington, Texas owned and operated by Brian Burns.

Lost Highway Media specialise in developing modern, responsive, standards-compliant websites with a focus on excellence. You can imagine my shock and surprise that a company, with such high standards, has to resort to spamming random email addresses to get business.

After waiting a few days I decided it would be best to follow-up with Lost Highway Media. I let them know spamming random email addresses probably didn’t convey the professionalism they thought it might. Especially since they were advertising their ability to get websites to rank better in search engines.

SEO or “search engine optimisation” is the art of getting websites to rank better for specific keywords so people looking for them end up on a particular website.

Lost Highway Media appreciated my advice.

As with most spammers, I wanted to establish where Lost Highway Media got my email address, this didn’t go down well with Brian Burns at Lost Highway Media. Apparently my reply to his unsolicited email spam was bothering him.

Spamming in Texas

The Texas Attorney General is the state’s chief legal officer and is responsible for policing spam, scams and online safety as part of their Consumer Protection responsibilities.

Texas enacted legislation in June 2003 requiring that unsolicited commercial e-mail messages include a label (“ADV:” or “ADV: ADULT ADVERTISEMENT”) at the beginning of the subject line, and a functioning return e-mail address for opt-out requests, which must be honored. The law prohibits unsolicited commercial messages with falsified routing information. False, deceptive, or misleading subject lines are prohibited in all commercial e-mail messages, as is the unauthorized use of a third party’s domain name.

Update

I’ll update here once I find out how Brian Burns and Lost Highway Media of Arlington, Texas got my personal information.

Spammers Beware

I occasionally read unsolicited emails, not for their content, but to see if a company that should know better has decided to send me stuff I didn't ask for.

The only way to get onto my list of spammers is to send me unsolicited emails.
