I received a newsletter signup that looked fishy.

“It looks like you’ve misspelled the word “clich” on your website. I thought you would like to know :). Silly mistakes can ruin your site’s credibility. I’ve used a tool called SpellScan.com in the past to keep mistakes off of my website.


I try very hard to make sure I’ve got no typos. Not to say one won’t creep in, but I don’t find this one anywhere.

I see reference to something similar here and here and lots of folks chiming in on this Twitter thread. Smells like spam.

Searching through some of the threads, it seems different flavors of this message have come from Kerri Walker, Scott Matthews, and Sean Thompson.

Posting here in case others have the same thing happen.
