    I was on craigslist posting like hey free apple Phone and said email me, and soon I got a message subject: OperationInvestigation saying that I was breaking the law and that I spammed my links and if you go to craigslist not one link has been spammed so am I in trouble? I told the fellow to piss off cuz I was marketing and not breaking any laws and he said: Hello again, Just to mention I normally don't get into these things but it seems the guys upstairs think you IP address is attached to several adds like the IPOD and others so here is your legal cease and desist order . Craigslist as authorized us to take action if we note your computer IP again. You will be arrested and prosecuted if you continue further.

    And he also said back: Well maybe not, 1 your email just broke the law with SLANDER and DEFAMATION alone so feel free to contact me sir . I'm at 410 south High street 2nd floor . ask for Mike Bostic . 614-462-4144. I'll be taking care of everything else while I wait your call. But I'm sure we will contact you first.. Be advised also FEDERAL INFORMATION and SPAM act requires you to remove spam adds when notified and after that you are in violation. That was before you were nice enough to provide me with the additional crimes..

    Just ignore those kinds of people. Responding causes the guy to think he is having an effect and he will continue to BS you and others.

    I'd post his email address so the world can send him random emails.

    Don't believe any emails along those lines. It's just your competitors trying to get you to stop so they can continue with less competition.

    I get this kinda stuff all the time. Sad really. Who really cares about someone posting ads for free iPhones? People with absolutely no life...that's who. Even if it's a competitor. I could think of some nice ways to mess with him a bit, but the advice about ignoring him is probably best.
