Grupo Click: Teaching a Spamtrap How to Attract Women?

I don’t speak or read Portuguese, but it appears that Brazilian web sales portal Grupo Click na Boa is trying to sell some sort of cosmetic enhancement product to a (presumably male) spamtrap, promising that the women will flock around (him|it). In any event, Grupo Click is sending bulk email to an email address that was closed in 2002. Since this is a single spamtrap hit, and a quick look at the Grupo Click web site shows an aggressive attempt via popup to get visitors to leave their email addresses, I suspect that Grupo Click is collecting a lot of forged, falsified, or out-of-date email addresses from that web site and failing to confirm them before it adds them to a list. The ESP is Lyris.

  1. Hi,

    This one was resolved as of early May. Surprise surprise, it turned out to be a bad list – they’ll no longer be sending to it.

  2. Figured. Since they hadn’t been spamming my traps since, I knew somebody had reined them in. 🙂 ‘Good to hear!
