Mainospörssi: Contaminating TeliaSonera outbounds with spam

Mainospörssi (Deltaline Oy, www, biz reg, responsible people) is spamming Finnish B2B with a list purchased from Suomen Asiakastieto Oy and contaminating the outbound of their ISP, TeliaSonera plc, with their spam.

TeliaSonera’s response 1 Aug: “We sent a complaint on the matter both to Mainospörssi and the list vendor.” As if that would result in anything. Spammers take warnings as free opportunities to continue doing what they were doing, and terminations as a necessary cost of business. The only thing a service provider can do is make a spammer the problem of anybody else but themselves.

At present, kirsi1.inet.fi is listed by SpamCop.

Suomalainen Kirjakauppa: Hell bent on using bad data

Suomalainen Kirjakauppa (www, biz reg), one of Finland’s largest bookstores (and oldest registered businesses) has been terminated previously by a Finnish ESP, and by a Swedish ESP operating in Finland, both for the use of bad data that hit spamtraps and landed their IPs onto blocklists. It is very likely that they aren’t deliberately spamming B2C (though it must be said that B2B spam that is guaranteed to be spam has been seen from them too), but by steadfastly refusing to clean bad/old/bad and old data from their legitimately acquired B2C lists, they have degenerated into spammers.
