Spark does not promote things like that... sounds like you got spammed!

That doesn't sound like a typical email we would send. I'm wondering if it's spam, just made to look like it's coming from us. Would you mind emailing it to me so I can check into it?

I have been a long time promoter of Spark but tonight when I received an email from Spark People on m personal email address pichting how you can lost 20 pounds by New Years - and I opened it and it was an ad for Herbal Magic I was disgusted. It was deceptive and misleading. I replied to the email staing that I had spent over $5000 on Jenny Craig over the past 18 months and while it worked at first did not work over time and friends and collegues who ahd spent even more on Herbal Magic had worse results I was disgusted that Spark People would be actuall pitching Herbal Magic by emal to people who had signed up for Spark People which actually worked for me. Has any one else had similars with this website which is a free weight loss website trying to sell you other diet programs that cost thousands of dollars and do not work in the long run/ I have tried to find an contact email for Spark but cannot find one on this website to save them the embarrassement of this email.
I would really like to know if anyone else has experienced this - ie hyprocritcal emails from Spark People that try to sell weight loss progams that cost thousands of dollarrs and do not work - ie Herbal Magic? Until tonight when I recieved this email from Spark Peopl pitching herbal magic I totally believed in Spark People - now - not so much.
