Finnish Skijumping Federation / Kansallistalkoot.fi: Soliciting contributions by spamming

Finnish Skijumping Federation is spamming, trying to suggest that sponsoring their activity would be tantamount to national community unpaid work (the name of the spam-advertised website, kansallistalkoot.fi, translates to “national community unpaid work”). I reject the notion. To me, there is no sense of community unpaid work in the Finnish Skijumping Federation (Finnjumping ry, a sub-association of Suomen Hiihtoliitto, the Finnish Ski Federation) soliciting businesses for monetary donations.

The spam was sent by Oraakkeli Oy (www, biz reg) on behalf of Finnjumping ry (www, biz reg) through the resources of StreamSend, whose Acceptable Use Policy forbids the sending of UCE and whose Legal Agreements (item 5, specifically) prohibit the use of purchased lists.

Getwin Oy: Selling services to spamtraps

Getwin Oy (www, biz reg), a business partner of Tavoite Media / Lateralus Enterprise, is spamming (again, or still, whichever).

A little bird sang last week that Tavoite Media’s Bangladeshi resources had been termed. So now they’ve gone looking for more in Jordan. Of course there is nothing here to indicate that Tavoite Media is involved, but just how likely is it that Getwin have bothered to find a new partner in spam whose M.O. is exactly the same as that of the old one?

Ratekoulutus: Teaching spamtraps about New Generation Email Marketing spamming

The fine fellow from Ratekoulutus, an old acquaintance here (www, biz reg) is spamming to advertise its spamming courses. Oh, I mean “workshops on New Generation E-mail Marketing”. The new generation is spam, as was the old one. Nothing new under the sun, in other words.

A show of hands, please: would you, the reader, take a class on e-mail marketing from somebody who deliberately sends unsolicited commercial email (spam) to what must be purchased or harvested lists consisting of, among other things, the outdated and erroneous addresses of natural persons?

Participating speakers include a dude from Koodiviidakko, an ESP that does not seem to practice bounce processing of any kind. He’s talking on the topic of purchasing lists. It’s also covered in their guidebook, in a generally positive tone.

Nothing new under the sun: Koulutuspalvelu Vaikutus (www, biz reg), who share at least one player with a spammer we already know, PowerCompetence, continue to spam to sell their courses, with a travesty of an address file announcement that amounts to wiping their bottom ends with Section 25 of the Personal Data Act.

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…

iFilip clearly gearing up for more

Unlike the previous entry, at least this spam was sent on behalf of a recognisable entity, Storia Kustannus Oy (www, biz reg). Storia’s representative confirmed in private email that they purchased the campaign from Tavoite Media, a d/b/a of Lateralus Enterprise.

iFilip still at it

“Riikka Mäkelä”, which appears to be a fake identity set up by Tavoite Media, a d/b/a of Lateralus Enterprise, recently offered us the following spam. This isn’t even mainsleaze, it’s pure and unadulterated spam, but it was sent to addresses commonly used for mainsleaze (that is, Finnish B2B addresses). There was reason enough for more than a suspicion about the sender’s true identity, and the following post confirmed it.
