Seq 5 Oy / Siteseq: B2B spamming to offer webpage design services

Seq 5 Oy, also trading as Siteseq, is spamming to attract new customers for its webpage design services.

In February 2011, this bunch spammed my business with the same. I wrote it up and dude responded with a vague legal threat unless I removed the mention of certain businesses that he figured were not involved. (They own the domain names, so of course they were involved. They still are. I checked and the WHOIS is unchanged as of today.) I haven’t heard from the authorities on the topic. But he hasn’t spammed my business any more.

Now that I have a bunch of fresh traps, some of which are (quite incredibly) currently valid business addresses despite having been dead for a decade, I see that Mr Rantala keeps spamming. I wrote to let him know that his address list, which the spam admits was bought from a known bad player, contains outdated and erroneous personal data. Mr Rantala’s answer? “We have just purchased an up-to-date list, so this should no longer be a problem the next time.” (It will be.) I expressed regret at the fact they were spamming. “Yes, it’s a part of our marketing strategy.” At least he’s honest about his intentions.

  2. More just in. Says addresses were obtained from Suomen Markkinointirekisteri Oy, but is targeting an address that is no longer in the Finnish Business Information System and only otherwise appears in the outdated and erroneous “B2B” registers of list vendors such as Fonecta.
