    I became deluge with ENOM / NameCheap spam beginning on Jun 2016 and I get from 2-4 spam emails from one or the other each day since then and continuing up through today. Unfortunately, my spam filter catches only about 5% from each registrar. Here is the way my history transitioned. The initial roll out with me as a target started June 2016 and with all of the spam coming from ENOM registered domains. I kept sending abuse@enom.com daily reports all went ignored. No response whatsoever. So I wrote to the BBB and reported them as being a spam haven partner and after about a week, to my surprise ENOM responded back through the BBB and with that stated they had killed all of the domains I had reported as well as sent me a list of the twelve or so they had deleted. Still this meant little, since the spammer relies on the domain to be productive primarily on the day the spam email is delivered. Well further complaints to ENOM seemed to fall on deaf ears and the spammer moved to using the.co registrar while attempting to depend on the language barrier to stop reports to the .co organization of the bogus WhoIS contact data (I took care care of reporting to them because I am bi-lingual). Now today the only process that seems to work against ENOM/ NameCheap spam partnership is to report to the registar's regulating authority the bogus name, address and phone for the domains that are being logged into WhoIS. This still takes up to a week to process, so the spammer and their ENOM / NameCheap spam partner still is virtually unaffected. Today the spammers have shifted back to NameCHeap almost exclusively and the spammer seems to no longer care that invalid whois data reports are being submitted to ICANN and the Columbian .co authority, since the evil deed they are doing is completed long before any authority can get to the queue to take down the domain. NameCheap differs primarily from ENOM in that while ENOM pretends to "take spam seriously" they will do nothing regarding your reports for several days, assuming they do anything at all, and then they make a whoopla about taking action long after it is too late to stop the payload of "first responders" to the spam emails. NameCheap differs in that their abuse@namecheap will blatantly tell you they don't get involved in customer's spamming activity and suggest you take it up with some legal authority, saying their hands are tied. Speaking of legal authority, does anyone know of any lawyer that would take on a class action lawsuit and file it against NameCheap and ENOM? It seems that the loss of more money than their $10 - $40 daily spammer windfall may be the only language that these two can understand. ed with ENOM / NameCheap spam beginning on Jun 2016 and I get from 2-4 spam emails from one or the other each day since then and continuing up through today.
