    Giving up on Chinese spam

    I just reported my last spam from 163.com Since Spamcop closed, and then Knujon closed, and the world gone mad with GDPR, and ICANN gone over to the cyber crime side, and nobody policing Google, Amazon, Facebook or any of the other big boys, I have decided to stop wasting my time reporting any spam other than the ones I can identify the actual spammer / end of the money trail. All those hundreds of thousands of Chinese spams I've reported over the past two decades has done no good whatsoever. They just keep on coming. So any unrecognizable language spams will go directly to the trash. As we see our fellow spam fighters begin to die out, and the world is becoming increasingly okay with spam, I believe our usefulness is drawing to an end. Life is short. I'm concentrating on what I can change, and ignoring all that I cannot change! The best thing that could happen is the entire country of China and the Pacific Rim be blocked from the US. (IMHO) Let them spam themselves, or at least those who can read and understand their language. Thanks for reading Fred

    One More spam Reporting Tool

    They are now closed. Don't know if or when they will come back.

    Why does abuse@amazonaws.com get /dev/null?

    This is a canned response to say "forget you, we're actually doing nothing" Cloudflare has a similar "boilerplate" reply when you catch them red-handed in a direct lie. Give up. Yes, I agree, EVERYONE should block amazonaws, but nobody's listening. We're such a tiny spec on the butt of the internet we have no power what so ever up against Amazon, Google, Cloudflare and a dozen others who are making millions by exploiting the cyber crime industry. Welcome to the world of Crimazon.com and if you don't believe me, or want a real eye-opener, read Future Crimes by Marc Goodman http://amzn.to/2irHG0T (ironically available at Amazon!)

    Any point in reporting spam from AMAZONAWS?

    Yes, we believe it helps to report. I've been tracking them and if you follow SafeNetting or UGNN on Facebook or any of the "News" social medias you've seen my "Amazon complicit with Cyber Crime Cartels" alerts and warnings. Yet, when we report, it's the last time we get spam from that particular IP and domain. Yes, they switch -- and have a billion opportunities to continue switching -- but I do believe those reports get some attention. I have been unable to reach a spokesperson, it seems to all be automated without human intervention. Cloudflare is much worse. They actually admit that they are getting rich off cyber crime and nobody seems to care enough to speak up. I contacted a major, national law firm to launch a class action suit, but they said the judges have so little knowledge of technology that they believe the Amazon, Google and Cloudflare yarn about having nothing to do with the content.

    116 Spams over night from Qtum Main Network??

    No, I don't think so. I looked at each one, and reported each one, and the "to" addresses were all over, with me "cc" ... Some were to AOL accounts and many (probably the majority) to Gmail accounts. I discovered SpamCop chokes when there's more than six domains to include. So, I only reported the spams up to the 5th domain so that the key domains would be reported. If people just clicked "report" then they only reported "Administrator of network where email originates" and none of the spamvertised domains. They also know Spamcop's routines very well, as they included links to Amazon, and Google ... but github.com is the main culprit. Sending IPs (if not VPS) range all over the place from to That's one of the real problems with the "new" internet masking craze : VPS, cyber crime's best new friend! :-) I'm so tied up with hurricane Irma, spam is the last thing on my plate.
  6. What's the deal with all this barrage of spam subject: Qtum Main Network Launches September ... or similar????
  7. We were fairly free of spam from a set of domains for quite a while, but now they seem to be back with a vengeance. Anybody else notice? anti-spam (@) ns (dot) chinanet (dot) cn (dot) net spam (@) jsinfo (dot) net abuse (@) 12321 (dot) cn postmaster (@) jsinfo (dot) net abuse (@) jsinfo (dot) net spam (@) ccert (dot) edu.cn

    CloudFare Problems

    Is this thread still active? I've been building a case for months. now you guys seem to have gone cold on going after Cloudflare. Let's go after them as a Class Action and at least get monetary compensation for our trouble.

    Reporting doesn't identify source IP

    Report the spamvertised address. Turn off Apple and YOUR report items, but do report the spamvertiser -- the entity intending to gain by sending the spam.

    CloudFare Problems

    Hey guys . . . When I am targeting a specific spammer, I copy all the text from "Here is your. . . " and save with reference. Actually it's real easy, just drag the last reference, then shift/click at "Here is your" and you select it all, then drag and drop into a text editor. (I use BBEdit) Not only does it keep that in a searchable form, if you use the Cloudflare reporting page, https://www.cloudflare.com/abuse/form They then accept it as "legal" .... I've done about 60 or so in the past several weeks. If there's anyone else out there interested in going after Cloudflare, please let me know. :-)
  11. Over the past six months I've seen an alarming rise in spam -- particularly body enhancement and health or weight loss -- with host listed as Cloudflare.com ... I've reported several hundred. Then I learn they ignore Spamcop and have their own reporting "form" ... Who else has Cloudflare.com spam reports? Would you be willing to hold them? Or, are you just not reporting them? What makes me very mad is they openly admit they let all the cybercrime through, and have no responsibility for who uses their VPN and IP Address masking. All their web site and so forth are completely automated and buffered from any contact. For all I know, it's actually a middle Eastern terrorist cell running it. Their income is in the millions. So today, if you want to send millions of spams, just put in two redirects, and host them at Cloudflare.com I've reported 60 or so through their form, which is a five-step form that only accepts one domain at a time. I pressed them on the point that after I've reported the attack, they can no longer claim not to know who is sending or what the nature of it is. So they're obviously covering up the fact of how rich they're getting off of shielding the cybercrime industry. I do not think SpamCop is adding them to the black lists since they haven't shown up anywhere. It should be illegal. :-(
  12. I had to shut down my spamcop address because of a "Joe Job" spam attack ... now it's over and I cannot find the original place to get the spamcop mail hooked back up. I re-read the instructions but the form returns a 404. :-( Any help?
  13. there have been a rash of attachment spams lately -- does anyone know if these are malwre? We got 8 this morning -- all said "Photos" like someone was sending me a photo . . . this one is an "invoice" ... we've gotten a rash of those too. Spamcop never finds the sender, and reporting is basically worthless. The IP resolves to somewhere in Iran ... are these ISIS terrorists trying to break in? In my email it looks sort of like this screen capture :
  14. Using this "User Notification" and "Additional Notes" fields, can the REAL ISP of the offending cybercrime site be notified? Is this right?

    They're okay. Check KNUJON on LinkedIN . It's just a major HUGE operation, and they're dreadfully underpaid and understaffed. But keep sending those reports. I got my updated report just the other day. :-)
