Justin Perintä Oy: Acc Consulting Oy expanding into debt collection, and spamming

The people behind Acc Consulting Oy appear to have set up a new business, Justin Perintä Oy (www, biz reg, people responsible), to branch into debt collection, and predictably, started using their time-honoured methods to advertise their services.

As usual, their Internet service providers, Saunalahti (a d/b/a of Elisa Plc), Kotisivut.com, and Nebula are doing their damnedest to turn a blind eye.

St1 Yrityskortti: Dear Spamtrap, Get a Business Fuel Card

St1, a fuel chain in Finland, is advertising their business fuel card services in illegal spam. They started (no later, but possibly earlier than) in October, and the only visible change is that the spamming domain names and IP addresses have changed for today’s missives.

(It was “postipalvelu.com” in October, and the complaint on Oct 10 was sent to St1 representatives in email only. No response was received. Kirjekyyhky.com was registered to an anonymous party on November 8, 2013. Pretty damn quick for getting thousands of subscribers, just over the weekend, huh? Oh, but those aren’t subscribers in the traditional affiliate marketing sense, they’re just crap harvested from business registers and the EuroAds “publisher” freely admits this.)

Blancoa Oy (www, biz reg, responsible people) is spamming to sell temporary office space to spamtraps.

What is surprising is that the ESP is MailChimp, who have been informed.

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).
