Just received an email from NearFinderNZ <nearfindernz@nearfindernz.com>

 

Looks like it has simply crawled the web and populated its email with data retrieved from the crawled pages?

 

Legit/useful or something else?

How do you know it harvested emails? 

 

It just looks like a templated directory site - they use the words "county" and other stuff that is clearly not New Zealand focused.

 

It's not even a New Zealand company. Ignore the email. Spam.

Good question - some info seems to have come from a yellow pages online directory - I guess they could have purchased it?

 

I have no idea where they got the email address from it is not listed in the domain whois, website or yellow.
