Marriage made in Hell: Emaileri and Suomen Asiakastieto

It was reported in Finnish news about a week ago that Suomen Asiakastieto Oyj has purchased Emaileri. Apparently this is important enough to be reported elsewhere, such as in Financial Times.

  • Asiakastieto is Finland’s #1 vendor of B2B spam lists
  • Last year, Asiakastieto purchased Intellia, another company involved not only in B2B spam list sales but e-pending and generating email addresses for spamming out of thin air
