    Looks fishy (or is that phishy) to me.

    The URL redirects to sterlingpublication.com. The first domain was created on January 15, and the second on December 8. I found a cached page for what appears to be the registrar. Any site that I find that appears to be associated with the registrar is down or not working properly.

    What really got me is that the only apparent page on the site is an invitation to sign up for a membership. Whoo boy, that instills a lot of confidence in their business! (Insert dripping sarcasm here.)

    . . . and probably hopes that someone will associate them with the reputable Sterling Publishing that's now a subsidiary of B&N:

    Heh. The link in the email above results in:

    Customer Account Cancelled

    Error: Your request cannot be completed.

    We are sorry but the sender of the message you received no longer has an active ResultsMail account. As a result we can not process your request.

    The link you were attempting to access is http://www.sterlingexecutivepublications.com
    Site's gone and the only Google hit for "Sterling Exectutive Publications" is this thread. So much for that....
