Don’t do as I do… do as I say: Nebula Oy, graduating from spam support to actually spamming themselves

Ooooo, and it makes me wonder. (LZ)

Nebula Oy (www, biz reg, responsible people, financial details), my favourite spam-support hosting provider here in Finland have taken the next step on their road to oblivion – by advertising their own services via spam. Their own Terms of Service might not amount to much, but this is decidedly a big step downward.

SEO solicitations via spam from MailChimp: Optimointi Pro Oy and MAJ-Yhtiöt Oy

More to come later. Just pointing out that after being thrown off SendGrid for spamming, MAJ-Yhtiöt Oy (www, biz reg, responsible people) is now spamming from MailChimp’s infrastructure, along with their buddies at Optimointi Pro Oy (www, biz reg, responsible people). MailChimp has yet to respond in a sensible manner. MailChimp’s customer is suoraposti.com, aka Nettiapina Oy (www, biz reg, responsible people).

How are Fonecta’s address lists built?

In the Finnish version of the Why won’t you tell us what email address was spammed article, I surmise that e-pending is largely unknown in Finland.

I stand corrected.

seofinland.net: Still spamming nonexistent addresses with link exchange solicitations

Still going on as before. Processing erroneous personal data (list harvested from web pages, including things that nobody but spiders would notice), not indicating the address source, not indicating who is behind the operation, not indicating how to be removed from the list, the list of illegal aspects of this spam goes on and on.

Getwin Oy: Still spamming

My favourite spammer boi and his trusty sidekick are at it again, advertising the services of the latter’s business, Getwin Oy (www, biz reg) via spam to the usual crapola of addresses, including ones that have already opted out >18 months earlier. Unusually, I’m only munging the links that could be clicked to “remove” this address from the spam below.

Being their usual smart selves, they registered microsoftemail.net to spam with. Let’s put it this way: stepping on the shoes of the giant in Redmond is not a smart move. At the very least, this has the makings of a UDRP case, but being done in a manner that makes it look like MS were involved in their spamming, I’d say the spammers are hoping to have a new one ripped.

Suomen Perintätoimisto Oy: Selling debt collection services to spamtraps

This is a little old, but please bear with me. Suomen Perintätoimisto Oy (www, biz reg) is selling debt collection services via spam, and is predictably hitting spamtraps as a result. They’re contaminating the public outbound SMTP servers of their ISP by doing so. They’re also processing outdated and erroneous personal information, which is illegal in and of itself.

Xtravaganza.fi / kevytkauppa.fi: Do businesses really worry about weight, or eat snacks?

Xtravaganza.fi / kevytkauppa.fi (domains registered to In Shape VIP Oy Ab, and Edlit Production Oy, respectively), who look like they might be somehow related to Shape.fi, are spamming Finnish B2B addresses (including outdated and erroneous personal ones) to offer them “snacks you can eat with a good conscience”.

Korpela Paper Ky: Spam to wipe your rear end to… wholesale of loo roll via spam

I kid you not.

Shape.fi (Fit Production Oy): Spamming Finnish businesses into shape?

Over the past week or two, a new kid on the block has been announcing their arrival on the scene by spamming. A business formed over last Christmas, Fit Production Oy (ex M. Productions Scandinavia Oy, biz reg, founded by this person (Facebook link – don’t click if logged in to FB)) is advertising their new service, shape.fi in spam. Their spam service provider is the infamous VenaMail (MailCom Europe AB), who have a Spamhaus SBL listing to their name (and, one should hope, a few more on the way), and their ISP is Zoner, who some time back joined the ranks of the illustrious by complaining to the Data Protection Ombudsman about a public copy of a response of theirs (an unsatisfactory one of course) to a spam complaint (regarding spam they themselves have sent; so why am I even dreaming that Zoner would do anything about a spam-advertised site – they advertise their own services via spam, after all).

(RESOLVED) Pro-tikkaat.fi / Hailokauppa.fi: Selling trashcans via junk mail… how appropriate

This spammer dude (www, other www, biz reg) made the fatal mistake of spamming via Creamailer, a Finnish white-hat ESP who subcontract with SendGrid, a US-based ESP who don’t like spammers, purchased lists etc. any better.

Displaying severe awesomeness, SendGrid’s automated systems reacted to this transmission and suspended the account before I had even sent in a complaint. A bit later, Creamailer indicated they had had a conversation with the customer, the customer indicated they had used a purchased list and would continue doing so, and so Creamailer showed them the door. I sense more AUP terminations in their immediate future.
