South Africa's spam mail CEO is "untraceable"

Over the last few months, we have covered the exploits of South African search engine Web9 and its CEO, Shingi Mushipe.

Mushipe's endeavours included a daily spam email blast advertising his search engine, which was sent to recipients whose email addresses had been scraped from multiple sources across the Internet.

Rendani Nevhulaudzi sounds like a normal oke running a seperate clean business, just unfortunately otherwise associated with Mushipe.

A Zimbabwean targeting South Africans. That's why he doesn't care about being caught and just make BS excuses like he has changed his way or some technical error excuse.

Every ad view on his crappy search engine is like 1 million zim dollars.

At least if he gets 10 subscribers, he can buy a sheet on a roll of toilet paper. That's how much our privacy is worth, also Sect 45 of the ECT Act of 2002.

So the internet doesn't forget cached images...

...or it's a diversion, a trap if you will, somebody completely different.

This sounds like the same person who’s trying to “hide” behind the identity of the “other” who is involved in unscrupulous practices.
Spins a long story to try make it appear that they are not related but in fact they are one and the same

If he tried a year to locate the other owner to invest, it mus be a very very lucrative investment?!
