“Just” an epic fail combined with questionable ethics

Recently I received a amazing email newsletter titled “Highest Growth in SA”  from a letting/ investing/ rental group named Just Letting, Just Invest… and god knows what else, they seem to have their fingers in everything… I didn’t bother checking the JSE for the “Just Group SA” in fear of the shock I would end up with by knowing too much because of one “Spam” newsletter email of them telling me how amazing they are.

I’m as cheesed with random spam, I didn’t sign up for as the next person… however I figured I would rather respond to them in a polite manner and brush it aside… here’s the full email below.

“Hi there,

Thanks for the email… even though I didn’t sign up to be informed of how your group has grown in South Africa. Hope you guys are doing well on that side, I’ve had an opportunity to look at your website and everything you have to offer…

However I’ll unfortunately not be requiring your services as I have discovered the following…
@JustInvest4 on twitter has too many fake followers, please see http://fakers.statuspeople.com for more info, type in your twitter handle… this in itself very poor practice for any business. So I wouldn’t want to know how badly the other  three previous twitter handles were that you guys are now on number 4… or all the other social profiles listed to your group of companies.
…and with at least forty serious complaints from customers who have dealt with the “just group”
Thereafter an additional one hundred and seventy one awful and in many cases bordering on unlawful actions which customers have mentioned and complained about…
…you guys even manage to come under the spot light of Carte Blanche on tv?
…Your facebook page is filled with very bad complaints and no feedback to any of them:
Maybe if things change in future, I just might reconsider contacting your group of companies…. sorry, going with you guys would be a very poor choice, however I do hope 2013 is a good year for you….
Just a quick mention, if I may… These are the first pages I came across when looking for you on google (It could be wrong but I highly doubt that), I’d prefer to avoid any business or personal dealings with this group in any way… However I would like to thank you nonetheless for making me aware of your existence, now may I request that you remove me from any future info you’d wish to send my way.
My apologies if I’ve duplicated any email addresses, your contact list your website is really long and I do not know who’s in charge of this business group
Regards,Wayne
