ScienceSoft Oy, apparently of Annankatu 2 A 2, 00100 HELSINKI, tel. +358-45-178 4880, email@example.com, www.scnsoft.fi are spamming. The spam has zero text content, only a 24-page PDF, so it’s illegal because it does not indicate where the addresses were obtained from, it does not have an unsubscription method, it does not identify the sender adequately, etc. etc.
The spamming IP is in Belarus, as is the mothership of this supposedly Finnish company. They started spamming in April 2013, but I seem not to have written them up at the time.

This was sent in private email on Feb 12 in response to a spam. No response has been received so far.
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, 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. This is not surprising because one of the people (possibly the only person) behind this is Janne Laitinen, also known under the business aliases “Yrityspostia.fi” and “Suunnittelutoimisto Jotain…”. What is surprising is that the ESP is MailChimp, who have been informed.
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.
