Question Nal It Advertising?

Hi, just got this email from Nail It Advertising

"

Dear Website Owner,

You recently submitted an application to be a part of the adClix banner network.
Since that time, adClix has dissolved and a dynamic advertising banner network
has evolved...Nail It Advertising.

The Nail It Advertising Corporation CEO and technical team originally began work
in the internet advertising industry with eAds, the first fee-per-click banner
network which started in 1995, and then later, started adClix, which began in 1998.
Since then we have become a proven leader among internet advertising networks through
innovation, integrity, dependability and expansion. Currently, the Nail It Advertising
network consists of more than 25,000 unique websites and continues to grow as more
websites are being added daily. Join the Nail It Advertising network just like thousands
of other websites have and watch your website revenue multiply.

To get started, please go to the following link and complete the membership application:
http://www.nail it advertising.com/webmasters/join.htm

We look forward to providing you an outstanding target market of advertisers to generate
revenue for your website, with increased customer support and personalized expertise.

Best Regards,

Nail It Advertising Corporation http://www.nail it advertising.com"

Has anyone ever heard or seen this company?
They claim to already have 25,000 sites in their network, but this is what shows up in their DNS records...

Record last updated on 20-May-2001.
Record expires on 08-May-2003.
Record created on 08-May-2001.

How Can a site less than 1 month old have 25,000 members? Should I trust this company?

Oh if anyone is wondering why I have spaces in the url it is because the forum says there is an unsafe chracter and thta it is a hacking attempt... But just don't use spaces for the URL

call me naive, but maybe they have attracted some publishers from their past company?

25,000 seems a bit much for 4 weeks though
lol

Call me skeptical, but is this really a valid bragging point? I mean, although eAds developed a reasonable reputation during its short lifespan, is the fact that this management team have already driven two online ad networks into the ground somehow worthy of acclaimation?

Then again, I suppose 24/7 Media did emerge from the Commonwealth Network, yet managed to attract 100s of millions of dollars in investment. Maybe track records mean little these days.

Hmmm...

BTW, I'm presuming that the inference behind the appearance of all those high-profile company names on their index page is that they have advertised through NailIt.

Well, just as the posters above suggested that it's unusual for a company whose domain was registered less than a month ago to attract 25,000 publishers, it's similarly unlikely that CNN, ESPN, MTV, VH1, Microsoft and Amazon.com would advertise with such a newcomer to the scene - especially when inventory is available through far more established (and arguably reputable) firms at bargain-basement rates right now.

It all seems just a little bit suspicious. Still, the only true measure of an ad rep's reliability comes through testing the service, so those of you who are based in the States should be able to gain a far deeper appreciation as to NailIt's scruples.

I just got the same email. Apparently adClix sold our information to them? Now, I think that is called illegal. Selling privacy information, tsk tsk.

As for nail it advertising, they stink.

i think it's the same people that ran adClix, so there was no "selling" of info.. most likely, someone just walked out of adclix with a CD full of host/advertiser info.

HAHA..

Look at adclix.com:

adClix Has Dissolved

You should be automatically redirected to Nail It Advertising within the next 5 seconds

If your browser does not automatically redirect you, then you may click the following link: Nail It Advertising

I personally think adclix.com is a better domain, but whatever.

I've seen that web design before.
It's a free template with some shareware wysiwyg web design software.
A friend of mine used it: http://www.hinet.net.au/~art
