OfficeHelpsX Oy: Selling printing supplies to spamtraps

Ever since mid-November 2012 or so, OfficeHelpsX Oy (www, biz reg) are spamming to sell printing supplies and office products. The domain registration of the spam-advertised domain, kotar.fi, at FICORA indicates a former d/b/a of the business, Konttoriapu UK Oy, and a phone number that leads to somebody who isn’t them (although names were recognised).

OfficeHelpsX Oy (d/b/a Kotar) are doing their own spamming (after a brief venture with a sorry excuse for an ESP, MailerLite).

The messages do not contain an indication of the address source as required by Section 25 of the Personal Data Act. The person responding to the phone number in the biz reg admitted that they are spamming purchased lists and saw nothing wrong with that.  She was also annoyed that I called the “out of hours” number and tried to point me to their contact details page for the daytime number, which is registered to the same business and person as the other one. Does it really matter which handset you pick up? 😉

Their web site does not contain a Description of the Personal Data File as required by Section 10 of the Personal Data Act.
