We do not accept your request for payment. As I stated earlier, we do not pay compensation in such cases, it is a quick and easy matter to unsubscribe. I apologise once again for any inconvenience caused we get our lists from reputable suppliers who supposedly supply only incorporated businesses. I don't know what a dictionary attack is, but these email addresses are usually obtained through surveys or subscriptions or club memberships.

If you have any other domains you wish to be suppressed, or if I can help with any more source data - please let me know

Customer Service

Oddly, no online contact details, let's do some digging.

Searching for their address comes up with many hits for a letting agent which doesn't seem to exist any more (dead phone number and website).
Let's try Searching for their (generic sounding) name. Well, we have some generic business directory sites, but nothing new.. but hang on...
The text on the first hit looks familiar, It appears that Phil has copied and pasted their details verbatim!

This blog also discusses a previous run in with them

It also seems that their claim to be a member of the DMA is rubbish as they aren't listed in the directory (probably why it's in quotes in their description).

I'll give it a few hours and call their bluff. For those wondering, I'll still be making a claim this weekend as they haven't proved they are exempt.
