DataDepot.Biz E-Mail Lists May Not Be All They Are Advertised to Be

Stop!  Before you purchase that e-mail list from DataDepot.biz, you should know that you may well be buying a list comprised of duplicates and garbage.  You may think you’re paying for a list of some number of e-mail addresses based on what is advertised but, beware, you may have a lot of entries that are merely variations of one e-mail address.  One example provided to this author by one who was duped by DataDepot.biz is:

[name]@seven_eleven.com
[name]@seveneleven.com
[name]@7-eleven.com
[name]@seven-eleven.com
[name]@sevenelevens.com
[names]@seven-eleven.com

(the actual name in the example above has been replaced with “[name]” to protect the person’s privacy).

As you can see, you are not really getting 6 different e-mail contacts although, you may be paying for 6.  Do you suppose datadepot.biz will allow you to see the file before giving them your money?  Don’t bet on it.  But, here is something you can bet on – once you have given them your money and find you are not satisfied with what you receive, they will not do anything about it and, most likely, will just tell you that you agreed to their terms that state all sales are final.

Once you’ve reached this point, you have just joined the ranks of many others who have made the mistake of doing business with this company who, by the way, is the proud owner of an F rating with the West Florida Better Business Bureau.

If you are looking for an e-mail list supplier, I suggest you keep looking and stay away from datadepot.biz.
