I do my best to limit the mail that I get each day. For instance, I call credit card companies and ask to be taken off their lists. It costs them money to send it, it costs me time to open it, and it costs our natural resources to produce the paper.
I had been receiving at least one large, 8.5 x 11 packet a week from one Naomi Zygiel. She would send literature in Hebrew and English, targeting Jews in the area. I called her office and left a message to be taken off the list. However, I continued to receive these mailbox-filling envelopes of crap. So I sent her the following email:
Subject: Interested in buying [to make sure she would read it]
Please remove me from your mailing list. I made this request once already by phone, and now through email. I don't know how you got my name, but I would like you to stop sending me literature.
She, in turn, wrote back the following
Subject: Interested in SELLING
Just wondering if you typically write to every JUNK mail that you are getting such requests...
I'll bet you must be too busy doing it. In anyevent, I will do my best to take you of the list.
BTW, in 11 days from doday, there is a real estate forclosure 1/4 a mile from your home. Is that something
you will be interested learning more about?
I find that to be appallingly unprofessional, and have sent copies of the email to other Jews and Israelis in hope that they will also ask to be removed if they are currently getting her packets. Do you like her reference to Harvard at the end? Hmmm...insecure much?
Anyway, people who try to sell things within their community on the sole basis of being a member of said community irk me. I have included her picture here so that you can see what I see each time I open one of her damn envelopes...
