I would like the name and phone # of the person who monitors this list. 
  for the past 2 months or so i have been getting emails from this group 
that I am not even affiliated with.  I do not even work for the 
company.  I will take legal action if this is not handled IMMEDIATELY!!

If this is no handled I will spam your list repeatedly.
