We the undersigned members are hereby making a direct plea for the management and Support staff at Care2 to remove and monitor the constant use of Care2 by SPAMMERS to hijack this site for the sale of counterfeit goods. We plea for immediate action on this issue and request that Care2 institutes a policy to prevent this ongoing and constant assault on the members by illegal practices.

We the members are fully aware that this is an illegal practice and in direct violation of the laws of the United States and the United Nations to protect intellectual and property rights.

recognizes intellectual property as a fundamental human right.

      Are you all fools? C2 sells all of your info when you sign up or sign one of their spam petitions. It's a scam, using dead animals to get your info so they can sell it. I'd like to see proof of any sort of change they've made for any of these causes or donations. Customer service has no response to any of my requests for proof.

      The more people complaining about this issue, the more likely that Care2 will solve this problem of irritating "SPAMMERS"!!! It is one of the few items that makes this amazing site look bad, and it discourages people from staying here. I am sure that Care2 does not want anyone to leave....I know I DON'T want to go. Thanks in advance, Cheryl A. McKenna

      All sites and interests involving the work that serious people are doing during this planetary transition period must be kept clean and safe from all spammers, hijackers, bogus material and merchandise that interferes with the issues being addressed. Forward movement must not be hampered.
