I help manage some optin lists. I always tell people that I never
respond to requests from someone to unsubscribe them from the list in any
fashion other than asking them to document the error message they got
when following the directions. On the rare occasions that the address on
the list autoforwards to their real address, and they dont have access to
the forwarding address, then I help.
However, it is perfectly reasonable to assume that, given that the real
list subscriber has unsub instructions at the bottom of each message,
that any message asking me to bypass that process is a forgery, and the
sender can't follow the normal unsub instructions because the sender
isn't receiving the messages that contain the normal unsub instructions.
