OPR-Vakuus Oy (yritysluotto.fi): Advertising business loans to spamtraps

Yesterday, I received spam advertising business loans from yritysluotto.fi to the address listed for my business in the YTJ (Finnish Business Information System). So did hundreds of Finnish YTJ spamtraps to which I have visibility. The sender is OPR-Vakuus Oy (www, biz reg, people responsible), who have been at this for at least a year and a half.

The spam sets a new low in the text part not containing any of the legally required information. No address source, no identification information on the sender, no information on how to unsubscribe. Even the HTML part does not contain the address source, and only hints at the sender’s identity in the HTML <TITLE> line.

The spamming service is Mainostoimisto Synergia Oy’s Boxy service. It looks like these people haven’t run into spammers before – it’s going to be a steep and fast learning curve for them.

  1. Now they are also spamming private persons (as well as corporate mailboxes) with quick loan advertisements targeted for consumers. In their response they are claiming they’re not responsible of the spamming or address registers used because they don’t send the spams themselves but use a third party to do so.

    Needless to say, I’ve already told them they are actually responsible of their marketing, and am expecting their version of what justification they may have for spamming my personal mailbox (as they also stated that every single owner of the email addresses that the third party targets has given permission to do so…)

    Something tells me I’ll have to turn to the authorities on this one, too..

  2. Oh, some details to the previous:
    – Front end domain marketed in spam: ostosraha.fi
    – Spam claims to be sent by, and has most links obfuscated via ‘etuviesti.com’, registered via proxy (how surprising)
