    wondering about efficiency of reporting spams

    These are a few other mail addresses associated with the same spammer too Support@festivusmedia.com support@victoriahearts.com support@mydirtyfling.com support@wildspank.com This is the grand total of my spam received today. One solitary message from a Russian romance scam, and I used to be bombarded with hundreds of the same messages you did all day, every day. My advice is good advice. I've been there and done it. It works. The choice if you take it is totally yours of course. Good luck then 😀

    Thanks for those links. That's a different spammer to the Hookup rubbish. I've been getting that same spam and stopping them by two different ways. Firstly use the unsubscribe option when the website has it. It does work. (It was on the bottom left of the page your click link directed to) The main website your links seem to direct to is called Dirty Tinder. But the same spammer also has other websites, but not all have the unsubscribe option. One of your other links has no opt out option. I stop that spam by actually clicking the options you would as if you were joining... The 'Are you male, female, what are you seeking...blah blah. I do that to reach the terms and conditions. When you get to the web page terms and conditions, you can get the websites contact mail address (by clicking on terms) to either ask to be removed from their mailing list politely. Complain rather strongly. Or go to hell on them and threaten them with all manner of legal action regarding the can spam act, unsolicited mail. Sending obscene porn to minors (You can make up as many violations as you like to do the trick) The email address you need to contact for that particular webpage is Support@festivusmedia.com Different webpages have different customer contact email addresses. All work, and they do take you off their mailing list. You shouldn't have to do this unsubscribing from things you never subscribed to. But once a porn spammer has you on the mailing list, the stuff will never stop by just reporting via spamcop. The web hosts like Alibaba and Cloudflare just don't care, most likely the abuse reports aren't ever read, if they have a valid reporting address at all. The email servers are rented from cheap spam friendly crooked companies in countries like China e.t.c.

    Can you add a link to one of your previous spancop reports that contains the link to the actual website they are promoting please? I can tell you if it's the same one I had success with by unsubscribing. It took about 2-3 days until the spam finally stopped, and it said it could take up to 10 days for it to end when I unsubscribed. It did work though.

    Krebs on security actually wrote a piece about this hookup spammer a few months ago. Inside a Porn-Pimping spam Botnet For several months I’ve been poking at a decent-sized spam botnet that appears to be used mainly for promoting adult dating sites. Having hit a wall in my research, I decided it might be good to publish what I’ve unearthed so far to see if this dovetails with any other research out there.

    Hi houseincloud. I had the same problem with this hookup spammer. As soon as I reported one spam message, a new one had replaced it. I'd been reporting them for a year or more with no luck, and not even one reply from any of the service providers. Like you, I thought it was a waste of time. All the mail addresses are different as you say, It seems a spambot can automatically generate any senders mail address, so trying to block them is pointless. These porn spammers also use many different email providers, mostly countries like China, Brazil and Thailand., who don't seem to care about spam. And they use web hosting platforms like Cloudflare, which I have seen described as 'Nothing more than a bullet proof spam haven' These spammers spread their operation around, so if any part of it is taken down - It doesn't really make a dent in their ability to spew spam out 24/7. Check out Snowshoe Spamming With all these factors in mind, and not making any difference reporting this junk for a year. I tried another way to stop this spam. I clicked through to this hookup website to see if there was any kind of contact address, or anyway to unsubscribe from this garbage. This does have obvious dangers, clicking any links in spam emails is risky. There are all manner of malware and ransomware nasties out there. But to be on the safe side I use this URL scanner https://urlscan.io/ That URL scanner also provides a screen shot of the web page, so you can see if it's safe to click on. It's also worth pointing out that many people will advise you NOT to unsubscribe from anything. It will only confirm to the spammer that they have reached a valid email address, and you will end up getting even more spam. So faced with this dilemma of whether to unsubscribe. I thought what the heck, I'm being bombarded with hundreds of these messages anyway,. I spent two days unsubscribing from around 70 spam messages, and Hey Presto. It stopped coming altogether, and I've not had another spam message from them for over a year. All I can say is - I wished I'd done that when I first started to get this hookup junk. 😀 It's also worth your while clicking through to these dating/porn sites and using their 'contact us' mail address to send them a message informing them you will report them for sending unsolicited nuisance mail. I've also found that taking the complaint straight to the culprit works wonders too. But only do this with the 'persistent' spammers where spamcop reporting has had no effect, and make sure the click links in any spam mail are safe to click by using the urlscan So I personally found the efficiency of reporting this kind of spam to be zero, but the alternatives to be a great success. I used to get hundreds of these dating/porn spam message a week. Now if I get 10 a week, that's been a bad week. I know how annoying this repetitive hookup spam is. Good luck in dealing with yours. Keep us informed how you get on 😀

    Glad to be of no help to you ? I hope it helped the original; poster, who asked if it was a legitimate IP address from Turkey not involved in suspicious behaviour though ?

    Check out the abuse reports for 209.85.218.43. It was last reported 6 days ago, and it appears to be sending fake emails from supposed friends. ...................................................

  10. They react like this. Cloudflare.com Hosting Spammers
  11. That's all very well, but you aren't reaching the abuse desks and never will, because cloudflare ignore all abuse reports. That's why spammers use hosting companies like Cloudflare. They are a bullet proof haven for spammers. cloudflare bulletproof spammer hosting
  12. I've had a look at some of those links on your abuse reports. The ones I've looked at all go to an unsubscribe landing page (which obviously isn't working) The look of it all does seem like the garbage I was getting though. What you need to do is actually go to the pages that are being spamvertised,. You need to contact the companies being advertised directly. It's obviously a waste of time you complaining to Cloudflare. Let them know they are being reported, and what the potential penalty consequences are for sending nuisance mail. These products and offers being sent are from a 3rd party marketing company. They have direct contact with the marketing company (unlike you who are failing to reach them via spam reports) It will only take one company to ask them to stop sending you their product offers, and the spammer will take you off the mailing list, and it will stop all the other junk from the same marketing source being sent to you. This Glossy Bingo was just one of the products I was being sent from my nuisance spammer. Finally fed up I went to their page, I found this contact email address and sent them a strongly worded email about their nuisance mail, and within 10 minutes I got a reply saying how sorry they were, and they would put a stop to it. It must have frightened them into action, they mailed me back twice over the next few days to make sure it had all stopped. I never had any junk again from that same source again. This is the can spam act jargon to give you some idea of the kind of thing you can put in a complaint. Q. What are the penalties for violating the CAN-spam Act? A. Each separate email in violation of the law is subject to penalties of up to $41,484, and more than one person may be held responsible for violations. For example, both the company whose product is promoted in the message and the company that originated the message may be legally responsible. Email that makes misleading claims about products or services also may be subject to laws outlawing deceptive advertising, like Section 5 of the FTC Act. The CAN-spam Act has certain aggravated violations that may give rise to additional fines. The law provides for criminal penalties – including imprisonment – for: accessing someone else’s computer to send spam without permission, using false information to register for multiple email accounts or domain names, relaying or retransmitting multiple spam messages through a computer to mislead others about the origin of the message, harvesting email addresses or generating them through a dictionary attack (the practice of sending email to addresses made up of random letters and numbers in the hope of reaching valid ones), and taking advantage of open relays or open proxies without permission.

  13. I had the same problem with a cowboy spammer called rutherl.com There was no way to contact them, and the only web page they seem to have is here http://www.rutherl.com/ They sent loads of this advertising rubbish for all manner of things, online gambling, glossy bingo, health care e.t.c. All this crap was hosted by Limestone Networks, like Cloudflare they take no notice of abuse reports, and are a haven for spammers. You can see many other people aren't happy with Limestone Networks by looking at the reviews they get on their facebook page here. https://www.facebook.com/pg/limestoneinc/reviews/ The spamvertised pages either had no un-subscribe option, or if it did, it wouldn't work. On the few occasions it did work, they didn't act on it and just kept sending the junk anyway. So like I said above, I set out to contact the companies directly who they were advertising for. I only need send one email to get it stopped. I contacted this Glossy Bingo and reminded them the can spam act states ' A. Each separate email in violation of the law is subject to penalties of up to $41,484, and more than one person may be held responsible for violations. For example, both the company whose product is promoted in the message and the company that originated the message may be legally responsible. After being pestered for months, all it took was one email directly to one of the companies being advertised to stop it straight away.
  14. What type of spam is being sent, is it the same thing? If you could give some examples of what's being sent it would be easier to find out what's the best way to stop it. I've dealt with persistent nuisance spammers by using any of the email address on their advertised spam pages, and digging out as many of their mail addresses as possible by using URL scan, and 'who is' e.t.c. Then I contact them and tell them they are being reported, all the info is logged and recorded, and tell them it will be passed on to the Federal Trades Commission (Or whichever regulator deals with unsolicited spam where you live) The junk mail has stopped immediately. Cloudflare are indeed the absolute pits for junk spam and not dealing with it.
