J.D. Byrider: Selling Cheap Used Cars to a Spamtrap

J.D. Byrider, a U.S.-based used car retailer and franchise with its own credit company, just sent a bulk email advertisement to an email address that, if it ever existed, closed before 2002. The ESP is Streamsend.

This spamtrap could easily be an email address that was created when a spammer tried a dictionary attack against this domain and, when nothing bounced, added those email addresses to a list that the spammer then sold. The types of spam that this spamtrap receives suggest that this is the case. It could also be a very old customer email address. If so, then J.D. Byrider is contacting customer email addresses that have not been mailed in a decade, or possibly is contacting their undeliverables list. :/
