SA Spammers: Do you recognize these names?

The Internet Service Providers’ Association of South Africa (ISPA) released its first ‘Hall of Shame’ report in September 2008, naming and shaming the country’s biggest spammers and email address resellers.

“ISPA, as the representative of the vast majority of ISPs in South Africa, is releasing this report to assist South African consumers to effectively manage local unsolicited bulk email (which ISPA terms “spam”),” ISPA states on its website.

The latest Spam Hall of Shame report is the largest ever, containing 53 South African spammers and 19 email address resellers.  This is up from 38 spammers and 10 address resellers only three months ago.

According to ISPA there is currently significant growth in the generation of local spam, and the following list of spammers bears testament to the deluge of spam in the country.
