Didn't Woodbridge Investments (woodbridgeinvestments.com) get the idea when John Darer called out their spamming techniques in this post?
For the past few days Woodbridge Investments has continued to spam this blog. Here is the latest comment:
"Are you thinking about selling annuity payments?
Annuities guarantee a steady income over a long period of time. However, if you are currently holding an annuity, you could reap big benefits by selling annuity payments for a lump sum. You may have:
.Purchased an annuity to provide future income. .Received a structured settlement from an insurance claim or lawsuit. .Won the lottery or a casino jackpot.
You must try for good reason! Annuity Settlement"

I decided to give Woodbridge a call on Friday February 1st and inquire on the recent events. I spoke to a woman who was very surprised and concerned. I am still waiting for a return phone call.
