I was looking forward to GDPR stopping a range of spam emails, including a spate from Steve Pipe. However his latest emails says
"On the basis that you’ve opened emails from me in the last 90 days (at least that’s what my software says), I’m assuming you have a ‘legitimate interest’ in continuing to receive emails from me about how to make your practice more successful. Please let me know if this is no longer the case by clicking the unsubscribe button below.
I intend to continue sharing content that is of real value to you value to you, including research, insights, educational videos and webinars, resources, recommendations and other similar information - all designed to help you build a more successful practice by serving your clients better and having an even more positive impact on the world.
So the first part of the good news is that you don’t need to do anything more to continue receiving them, since your legitimate interest means our relationship is already GDPR compliant.
Alternatively, you can of course opt out at any time – including now – by clicking on the unsubscribe button at the bottom of any email"
I don't want to be clicking on any of the spam emails as I have no idea which are phishing and which are genuine. If the businesses are genuine then their emails should just stop as I haven't agreed to be contacted. Steve Pipe's email content tells me that he is towards the phishing end of the spectrum. If he has a genuine business then he has just devalued his offer.
Has anyone worked out how to get him to stop sending his spam without risking their IT systems?
