Coast to Coast Career Fairs: Spamming E-Pended Lists for Job Fair?

Several weeks ago I blogged about spam from Coast to Coast Career Fairs LLC, an organization that sets up and runs career fairs in cities across the United States, to a spamtrap that never existed at all. Since then, the spam has continued. Subsequent spams from this sender showed that they have a name assigned to this spamtrap address, a name that has no connection to the email address in question since that email address has never been valid. This is a strong sign that Coast to Coast Career Fairs is using a purchased e-pended list. Their ESP is StreamSend, part of Web development and hosting firm EZ Publishing.
