If you aren’t a scammer, and want to hook up with people for a legitimate business proposition, I have a few pointers to give you.
- Use a legitimate e-mail address
- Address people directly, and now via an undisclosed email recipiants list
- Present yourself and your project and offer to call or hook up IRL for more information
- Use correct language, and format your mail as good as possible.
- Don’t use scraped email addresses (harvested from the web)
