Thread: Spammer sellings lists of SA email addresses

  1. #1

    Angry Spammer sellings lists of SA email addresses

    I posted this info on my blog, but think it needs a wider audience:

    Good Day,
    Due to a change in direction we have elected to sell all our multi-use business directories.
    Our portfolio consists of 22 directories as listed below.
    To encourage quick sales, we have priced each one of the 22 directories on our portfolio at only R50, but there is a minimum order requirement of 4. Alternatively, you can purchase the lot for Only R499!!!
    Our lists are 95% up to date and accurate, consist of no personal information and are populated from the public domain.
    All info is presented in Excel spreadsheets, this means it’s like having the Yellow Pages in digital format!
    This makes it an absolute pleasure for Salespersons needing to pull up specific records in specific areas!
    Numbers are limited, so act fast to avoid disappointment!

    In the email header is the line:
    Received: from dsl-243-98-32.telkomadsl.co.za ([41.243.98.32]:59157 helo=GlenPC)
    How do I identify his ISP from this info, or do I just report it to SAIX abuse?

    We have his email and cellphone number at the bottom there

    How does he get lists of Doctors and the like? He must have found them illegally.

    I realize the reason for your post, but what you have done is list what they are selling, with prices and contact details... You have just given them free advertising...

    I move that everyone sends him an email and an SMS, also let's subscribe him to all sorts of "value added" sms campaigns.

    Sent my email already, who else?

    Even better, sign his email up for spam. There's places you can post them where the spammers harvest emails, like old websites that make their guest lists with email addresses public.

    And post ads with his phone number on Gumtree offering cheap sex services.

    Email I'll be sending him shortly from a fake email.

    Dear Matthew.

    I hope you play World of Warcraft as I'll be ordering you some gold shortly. As you can see there is plenty of gold available. Best have your phone close at hand as they'll all be phoning you at 3AM for quite some time. Timezones are a b$tch aren't they.

    Since I know how much you love mailing lists I took it upon myself to add you to the few million or so Chinese mailing lists where you'll probably reside for the next 25 years, give or take a decade. You can thank me later!

    Yours Sincerely

    Whyso Serious

    You guys will be pleased to know that SAIX has tracked down his Telkom user account and he has received an AUP warning.
    I have also reported him to the ISPA hall of shame.

    "Mathew" phoned me this morning and assured me he "... was given my email address by a friend who had obtained permission from [me] to send [me] email" and he was under the impression that my email address is "public". Mmm... Great friend he has. Probably his only one ;-)

    Why don't these guys ever learn?

    I have amended the prices so that any new customers are going to feel ripped off. ;-)
