Post Possible Spam Posing as RC Universe

I'm not sure if this is the right place to report this but I just received an email from RC Universe but it is an advertisment for Gut Wash or Power Wash for your insides.
The return address is:

It is on an official looking format.
Just thought I would report it. I'll try to copy and paste it here. Also if you have a place where I am supposed to forward this type of emeil, I will do that. See ad pasted below.

Dear Readers,

What if you could restore your gut health with one simple fix?

According to one doctor in California there may be a way.

In fact, he believes it’s so powerful that it could be like a “power wash” for your insides.

Dr. Gundry, who is a world-renowned heart surgeon, reveals the root cause of weight gain, food cravings, and low energy in a short video he released to the public.

P.S. This video also reveals how you can transform your gut with this one simple thing.



I logged back into this site just to see whats up with this crap, is totally crap.

Hi guys,

This is an email sent through our RCU marketing department. It's not "spam" in the sense that it is actually from us.

We do not sell anyone's email address or data.

Let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Thank you,

--Admin

I guess some view it as if it`s anything trying to separate you from your money, it`s spam.

all unrequested advertising is, by definition, spam.

That's why I use throw away e-mails for forum registrations. If the forum proves to be legit, i.e. doesn't spam with unrelated adds, then I eventually move it to my real e-mail. However, if it does send me e-mails such as the above, I'll close the e-mail address and forget them.
