I received this email this morning from an individual who asked, "Is the below mentioned email id belongs to any of your company official?" The email was sent from [email protected] and read as follows:

From: Rustybrick [mailto:[email protected]] Sent: Monday, October 30, 2006 1:37 PM To: [removed] Subject: Cost for SEO and Link Building

I was shocked by this, RustyBrick is such a unique combination of words, why would someone in the SEO business use that for their gMail account?

The email is incredibly hard to understand, based on the English used in the email. I emailed this email address asking if they are the official RustyBrick and they responded very quickly saying, "sorry i am not the Concerned person." He then later emailed me a gmail invite, to my gmail account?

Imitation is a form of flattery but I don't want others to think that my company is emailing people trying to sell SEO services or outsource them.

I am not sure what I can do to prevent this?
