This website has not been updated since 2005. Some sections such as "Pet Poisons & Other Hazards" still contain valuable information, but many links and time-sensitive material on other parts of the site are WAY out of date. Watch for an entirely redesigned and updated PullmanUSA website in early 2010.

 

About PullmanUSA
 

PullmanUSA is a privately owned web site. We have NO online members, subscribers, clients or users, although several organizations under the PullmanUSA banner do have off-line members or clients (ART and MacWizard) that use the PullmanUSA domain in their email addresses - ALL email sent from, or received at, this domain are controlled by the PUSA Webmaster exclusively. We do NOT send unsolicited email to anyone - Read Spam Alert

This site contains NO advertising other than our own. We use rectangular and banner-style buttons

PullmanUSA was created primarily as a web presence for several target-specific interests, specifically SpringWater (a homeshare opportunity in Pullman Washington), and ART (a group of Pullman artists who have been meeting weekly for over 50 years)

Secondarily this web site is a "parking place" for the domain owner's web links, city-state-federal resource database, and hoax & scam database. Those links and resources are freely available to all who surf PullmanUSA

Since the domain name suggests a portal for the City of Pullman, PullmanUSA's "front-end" or "entrance" is designed to accommodate Pullman-curious web surfers

Recently PullmanUSA has experienced an apparent hijacking of it's email addresses for illicit use - please read our Spam Alert

The Webmaster uses ancient software which results in a "look" more reminiscent of the early days of the web

If you have comments, questions, suggestions or requests about the web site or it's contents, please contact the Webmaster

Spoof eMail / Virus / Fraud Alert

Latest fraud using PullmanUSA's email addresses: October-November 2005

Several new SPOOF emails have been distributed in bulk using one or more of PullmanUSA's email addresses (webmaster@pullmanusa.net - an inactive address, pusa_webmstr@pullmanusa.net, mail@pullmanusa.net).

These email messages WERE NOT SENT FROM PULLMANUSA. We have turned this matter over to our host server's fraud administrator for his review

PullmanUSA does NOT have "members", we do NOT have "accounts" with passwords, we do NOT send ANY bulk / spam email to anyone, we do NOT send unsolicited email of any kind to anyone, AND there is NO such thing as "Pullmanusa Antivirus"

Do NOT Open Any Attachments

If you have received one or more of these hoax email messages we are sorry for any inconvenience that it may have caused you. Please delete these messages from your mailbox WITHOUT opening the attachments.

Regarding Past eMail Hoaxes Using PullmanUSA's eMail Addresses

If you have received email supposedly sent from the PullmanUSA Webmaster thanking you for using our software... it was NOT sent by us. If that email included an attachment, it may be an attempt to spread a virus or trojan horse - DO NOT OPEN ANY ATTACHMENT. We fear that our email address has somehow been compromised

PullmanUSA does NOT send unsolicited email with, or without, attachments to anyone, and we do NOT employ "autoresponders" (such as those thanking you for registering)

No one other than the Webmaster has access to, or the right to use, our email addresses (@pullmanusa.net) or domain name (pullmanusa.net)

There is NO " pullmanu " at PullmanUSA.net (i.e. " pullmanu@pullmanusa.net ")

PullmanUSA does NOT broadcast or forward bulk email of any type, for any reason, never ever. PullmanUSA does NOT send out advisories to "clients", "subscribers" or "members", nor do we send "help files" as attachments to "users" - we don't have any. PullmanUSA does NOT sell or distribute software of any type - and we do NOT register software or anything else for that matter

PullmanUSA does NOT have a "team" of computer experts or "administrators" advising you to take certain measures to avoid a "trojan horse", "worm" or computer virus. If you receive an email message supposedly from PullmanUSA advising you that you may have a virus or "trojan horse", and instructing you to open an attachment - immediately delete the message without opening the attachment(s)

NEVER open unsolicited email attachments from strangers

If you received unsolicited email supposedly sent from PullmanUSA, we are VERY sorry for the inconvenience. We urge you to contact the PullmanUSA Webmaster to advise us of the misuse of our address, and/or discuss your concerns. The PUSA Webmaster will reply to you only if you so request. Since PullmanUSA is a private site, there are no programmers that can answer your technical questions or give you advice on this matter

Our long-time email address (webmaster@pullmanusa.net) has been disabled in an attempt to end it's illicit use. This move has unfortunately disabled our merchant accounts.

Dear Pullmanusa Member,

We have temporarily suspended your email account youremailaddress@pullmanusa.net.

2. Submiting invalid information during the initial sign up process.
3. An innability to accurately verify your selected option of subscription due to an internal error within our processors.
