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.)
My favourite spammer boi and his trusty sidekick are at it again, advertising the services of the latter’s business, Getwin Oy (www, biz reg) via spam to the usual crapola of addresses, including ones that have already opted out >18 months earlier. Unusually, I’m only munging the links that could be clicked to “remove” this address from the spam below.
Being their usual smart selves, they registered microsoftemail.net to spam with. Let’s put it this way: stepping on the shoes of the giant in Redmond is not a smart move. At the very least, this has the makings of a UDRP case, but being done in a manner that makes it look like MS were involved in their spamming, I’d say the spammers are hoping to have a new one ripped.
