iFilip (Tavoite Media / Lateralus Enterprise), my spam superhero

Dude goes around asking “Which of these domains can be traced directly back to me”, then spams using the same domains advertising the SEO services of tavoitemedia.fi.  What a brainiac.

Dude handles some of his spamming himself, but also sells address lists to others to use in spamming.  The lists that he sells to others are considerably crappier than those he uses himself.  Wonder why…

(RESOLVED) Markkinointirekisteri.fi on SendGrid

Aki seems to have some skill in cleaning up, but he’d need m4d $k1llz. This is a spam sent by and on behalf of Suomen Markkinointirekisteri Oy (www, biz reg), one of the Finnish peddlers of purchased email lists.

SendGrid, whose Email and Communications Policy forbids the use of the same, should clean him up pretty soon, I imagine. (In fact I received their report of the same during the writing of this post.) I must admit I’m a little disappointed that they haven’t crosschecked their customer base enough to spot Markkinointirekisteri’s presence before I did.

“Ei roskapostia, kaikki eivät halua sähköpostimainontaa!” is Aki’s slogan. Translation: “No junk email, not everybody wants email marketing!”. So true. I suppose it does not occur to you, Aki, that all unsolicited bulk email is junk email, and that your entire business is built around sending junk email and facilitating others doing the same?

Fortnox: Selling accounting services by spamming purchased addresses harvested from the Web

Fortnox Oy (www, biz reg), the Finnish branch of the Swedish mothership, is selling its services by spamming. This spam was seen at the address my business publishes on its Web page. The contents of the message indicate they purchased an address list from Suomen Markkinointirekisteri Oy.

Markkinointirekisteri reported on October 5, 2012 that their file contains absolutely nothing on my business following earlier complaints. It follows that one of these folks is lying, but initially, I had no way to tell which one it might be. That is, until Fortnox / Mr Pilkama kindly admitted it (see comment below).
