Re: Business Scam No doubt that marketing firms can scan the Web for email addresses and of course NDT.net is one of their target. Not to publish the email address in the Forum profile is the only way of protection, but obviously this would stop also the ability of communication between NDT people.
I think we have to live with this situation and just delete unwanted emails.

I got your name and : contact from ndt.net.com" . : The "business" he writes of is certainly ficticious - : don't get involved. This is only my second message of : this type - amazingly few since I heard of this kind of : thing about 3 years ago. . : Robert Paynter .
