    inTrigger sent spam to contact@ for each of my .org repo plugin domains advertising their plugin.
    It seems as though they scraped .org looking for plugin developer’s websites or something. This is the second wave of spam emails from them.

    Hello,

    I’m a regular reader of [my domain], and I just published a new plugin that may interest you.

    We developed a really clever lead generation plugin, with inline scenarios based on keyword targeting / user behavior. https://wordpress.org/plugins/intrigger/
    For more information, WPLift wrote a full review of InTrigger plugin.

    As you’re clearly an expert of the topic, I would love to have your feedback.
    A feedback from high level bloggers such as you guys would mean a lot to us!

    Thanks in advance for your time!

    BTW this person sent another email today. I’ve forwarded it to plugins@wp.

    I’ve just seen your review on WP.org. We are sincerely sorry about what
    happened yesterday.

    We have spent a lot of time working on this free plugin, and we were
    really enthusiast about getting people to notice it… sorry, didn’t
    mean to be a bother.
    We did scrap WordPress directories plugins in order to reach 300 WP
    bloggers. Clearly it was a mistake and it won’t happen again.

    I’m sorry to insist but have you found the time to test the plugin? We
    really need feedback from expert like you.

    Regards,

    They’re spamming the crap out of us as well. I agree with Michael. I think you nailed it. That’s exactly what they are doing.

    Can you forward that to plugins@ as well? They were told to stop. If they’re still doing it, Ipstenu may like to know.

    Already done.

    They’ve been spamming us for months. This is about the 10th one we’ve gotten from them.

    We’ve delivered a final warning.

    If anyone gets another spam email dated AFTER May 13th, please let us know. Otherwise we’re giving people a chance to clean up their act.

    @ipstenu

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    Since Michael Thorpert and Ipstenu’s messages, we have stopped all email sendings. If anyone received an unsolicited email after that date, it must be a differed messaage that took time to be delivered.

    As we try to explain to Michael, we have spent a lot of time working on this free plugin, and we were really enthusiast about getting people to notice it.

    We did scrap WordPress plugin directories in order to reach the best 300 WP bloggers and influencers, thinking that they would absolutely love our product.
    Clearly this was a mistake. Nothing makes it OK to send unsolicited email. We’ll try to find better ways to get more feedbacks.

    Again our most sincere apologies for the inconvenience.

    Regards,

    Yassine HT
