My name is Eric Elliott, Senior Sales Executive for EmailDirect.com. I came across your website today and am looking to get in touch with the person in charge of your Marketing program. If you can put me in contact with the appropriate person I would greatly appreciate it.

Best,
Eric

the phone is a cell phone out of Sacramento, CA the company does exist and is legit. the fax is also in Sacramento, CA however (and i do not know anything about California.) the company is in Rancho Cordova, California not sure if they are close to one another or not. Their site says that all sales are conducted through the email address Sales@emaildirect.com so i would call the real number

To phone sales: (916) 439-6948
To phone support: (916) 337-0935

and ask them if Eric Elliott actually works there. before i rushed into things. also is your email address through a domain or is it a regular email address like gmail or hotmail.

i called and there IS an Eric Elliott that works there however it sounded strange on the phone it was echoey

strange the "Official" phone number from the website is also a Cell phone and this one is out of Folsom, CA as is the "Official" fax so the numbers do not really match up much. it might just mean they are personal phones used for company use and its a Very small company :p seams rather sketchy

all he wants to do is talk to your marketing person... ?

Reviving old threads is a big no-no, Eric Elliott.
