    No, haven't tried it yet. But I thought it was a nice twist off this method.

    Put up a fake ad on craiglist for a job and get some name, emails and applications. These are people you KNOW where employed. Then wait a few days and send the following message:

    Hi %%name%%
    I haven't stopped thinking about you since you left %%companynamefromapplication%%. 
    I found your email through a friend and finally worked up the nerve to let you know.
    It's pretty embarrassing, so I'm sending this from my private email.
    You know who I am....
    /Your friend
    Monetize the link with a CPA for any dating site. Personalize the email with the name of the last company from the application!
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    I like that tweak. It's pretty shocking people in higher-powered government positions use their work emails to reply to fake ewhoring attempts. Or random dudes saying hey look at me, this is my own company that I started and here is my cool-looking car, so you should be impressed with my business savvy prowess and money and go out with me.

    I like your strategy... I think this has the possibility to convert pretty decently.

    Instead of "you know who I am...", I'd probably put something to the effect of:

    I made a profile on here (%%url%%) incase you want to chat. Just search for my username, %%sexyofficevixen%%"

    Damn! Have you used this method before or just brainstorming? Either way this is a cool twist for sure! I bet there are more then a few noobs that have copied your ad word for word!
