The “exclusive” seller of interior design stuff, Fab.com has a bit of a spam problem. Over the span of a month, an old and no longer used (but still “active”) address of mine has received not one, but six unsolicited bulk (and commercial) emails from the upscale interior design retailer.

Callbox Sales and Marketing Solutions

I didn’t receive this one myself. Instead, I noticed it on the Spamhaus Blocklist “Lastest SBL Changes” page.

Looks like a company called “Callbox Sales and Marketing Solutions” is trolling for B2B leads and it attracted the attention of Spamhaus, who has now listed the source IP on their SBL. The ESP is Streamsend.

Topps: Still Spamming Despite Earlier Blog *AND* SBL Listing :(

Topps, the famed chewing gum and baseball card purveyors whom I blogged about for spamming two weeks ago, spammed again on Thursday of last week. This is despite the original blog and an (unrelated, of course) Spamhaus SBL listing for the first spam. Topps is mailing from its own IPs; no ESP is involved. That might explain the sheer stupidity of continuing to send bulk email to lists that they *know* contain a bunch of spamtraps, including apparently some that belong to Spamhaus.

The Brazilian division of U.S. and global retailer WalMart is sending bulk email to an array of personal email addresses and spamtraps via a number of ESPs. The ESP that sent the attached sample was MGS Comunicação Multimídia, but I have seen spams advertising Walmart Brazil from a number of Brazilian ESPs.

Kuopion Liikekirjapaino: hitting dead addresses, no bounce processing, not respecting opt-out

Kuopion Liikekirjapaino, a business printing house in eastern Finland, is spamming addresses they just might know to have been dead for two plus years and are not taking “no” for an answer. Innoctus, an ESP in Finland, are not processing bounces nor taking precautions to clean their customers’ lists of known dead addresses even when they have been requested to do so.
