I looked at the email messages one more time and I realize that I made a mistake regarding the one of the dates. The email message sent to Ecatel and cli-us.com that mentioned Christopher Lawell was sent on November 17th, not November 18th. So the sites would have been shut down and Chris’s LinkedIn resume would have been hidden on that day, too. I’ve gone ahead and fixed this error in my previous posts. This is the email message that was sent.

You’ve sent me more of this spam. Shouldn’t these sites be shut down?
They’ve been reported as scam sites by lots of different people over the
past year. These are just some of the reports.
The email address used for sending the messages was starred out. It appears odd that it shows up in the Delivered-To field and not just the From field, but this is nothing unusual. These are the message headers for a copy of a sent message that is given to the sender, not the copy that is delivered to the recipient. Gmail puts the sender’s address in the Delivered-To field in the sender’s copy because this is a copy of the message that was delivered to him by Gmail.
And once again, I’d like to reiterate a very important point. Outside of the email messages sent to the ISPs and cli-us.com and outside one post on this blog on November 17th no mention of Christopher Lawell in connection to the scam was made anywhere until after he hid his personal information. His claim that he hid that information because there was a campaign against him is completely false. It was hidden and the scam sites were shut down when the message above was sent. If he has evidence of this campaign, then let him show it to us.
