 I get maybe 4 to 6 of these offers a week. It'd take a while to
track down the real provider and send them the info.

 They track any place that sells things, any place. There
is nothing special about your adds compare to anyone else's.
They are just looking for fresh territory. Hoping that that

market group the better their chances.
