They usually come through a website contact form, and even adding Google reCAPTCHA to the form doesn’t seem to help. Every email is sent from a different IP addresses, so we can’t block the IP.
A typical email looks like this:

Obviously, that alias “Eric Jones” is fake. So who is hiding behind this mass spam campaign?
There is no company phone number or address, there is a website though - total scam with no contact info on that website. No legitimate company would send out so many spam emails.
Digging around on the internet it appears Talk With Web Visitor is operated by a Canadian company Trade World Corporation. Of course they have a F rating with the BBB, and the reviews show that other people and web companies have been continuously spammed by them. Some unfortunate people have even signed up for their service only to find that it is nearly impossible to cancel the account. Apparently, once they have your credit card number they will just keep charging it.
You may also get a version of this email with a link to another website – Jumbo Lead Magnet.
Some of the online reviews for Talk With Web and Trade World Corporation:

“They will KEEP ON CHARGING YOUR CARD EVERY MONTH!!!”
“They will SPAM you FOREVER.”
“Do a search on talk with lead review. LOOK at all the RIPOFF REPORTS!”
If you receive an email from these people , assume it originated from a criminal. Do not contact the sender of the above email. Do not provide them any of your personal information, Do not click the unsubscribe link. Do not send them any money. The only intention of the scammer who sent this email is to steal money and information.
Always avoid all website links that any scammer sends to you because their websites are all fraudulent and may also contain hidden Malware or Spyware.
