    Though gnarlymarley's question was obviously not for me, I have the exact same problem: spinning circle to the left of the blue refresh button. I disabled Ublock Origin, tried it with Chrome, Firefox, tried it from Incognito mode, tried it from my work PC (different ISP). Fails the same way.

    This is from a Apple/Mac?
    If so try safe mode, usually the Virus scanner stopping Captcha?

    This might be an issue as if you have the block list enable, then the reports stop and the IP falls off the list quicker.  Hopefully, they run across a spamtrap which I believe it will continue to accept spam while it is on the block list.

    Cisco have their own ways of creating blocklists for their email servers, This is what makes them sought after.
    There is nothing to set-up, no false-positives nor false -negatives. Has evolved from it's "Senderbase" days

    Is there something I can do to add those source IP to the blocklist?

    Is it useful to continue to post those spam in Spamcop reporting form?

    Keep reporting them they may get on he SpamCop Blocklist, Cisco is likely to add the spammers ISP, silently, add to their and owners/customers of their servers blacklist,
    which mean very few will even see them (they are bit binned/banned) Cisco is a major supplier of email servers which are spam free.
    Just post the SpamCop trace URL's

    - following the removal link do not stop the spam bombing

    So this is phishing and you never subscribed! with bogus unsubscribe, they are also IP hoping to avoid block-listing, called snowshoe spamming

    You say "Pay to forward the spam you receive to ..." because payed SC service will send the complaint to mail server source?

    SpamCop not doing it this time report is "devnulled"

    Why you say to preamble with "Criminal phishing and DDoS" ?

    Even in your case it is! If you start getting flooded with spam you stand the chance of your email account being disabled,
    Happened to my Gmail account,
    Chinese attack, "abuse]AT]12321[DOT]cn" is the supposed corrupt Government report address,
    they claim they want reports Forwarded as attachment before acting.

    apparently the first block is not listed in any BL:

    Tried the Unsubscribe link? They have your email address anyway. has had 8 spam reports over last 90 days,
    Might be spam laws in Germany but many of Germanys ISP's don't  accept SpamCop reports?
    Ideally still report though SpamCop creates statistics which are used by anti-spam org's
    Pay to forward the spam you receive to "abuse[AT]mapp[DOT]com" include full text and body.
    Above that a  preamble like

    Criminal phishing, bogus reply address, bogus unsubscribe (NEVER subscribed), DDoS

    I report it all assuming I check within 2 days of it showing up.   That account in question I don't always.   But yea, report it all.  If everyone did this it would stop so much faster.


    Thanks again for spamcop.  best service out there.

    Gmail/other throwaway accounts, need to confirm email accounts say a week later aside from their auto-ack and remove anything in their "cloud accounts"
    I keep reporting these criminals to gmail with this "addy", who keep attacking although now slowly

    Criminal  phishing, bogus reply address, bogus unsubscribe
    This/my email address I believe sold to this Russian (?) Crime gang by FaceBook

    It is confusing.   I use Spamcop to report spam.  Here is one of the tracking codes:


    So try clicking the unsubscribe link.
    They have your email anyhow,
    yes it can be used to confirm your address and probably bogus link. 
    Do-not write your email address in any box asking for it. It 's bogus!
    When you submit your next spam just include the top 3 links  delete the rest
    below those 3 links clink "enter, for one space" then write truncated, then submit 
    Doing this should remove "Too many links." failure

    Does google even care about spamcop complaints? 

    Google free service would rely  only automation, it is very good at sorting spam from ham
    If you log onto their webmail and mark all your spam as phishing it is acted upon.
    Each spam complaint would cost around $50 for a abuse team to work on, but I do believe abuse reports are gone over by Google
    I rarely get spam in my Gmail account

    I don't use Windows. I investigated a bit the JS code and there's an issue with the way the headers are generated for the AJAX calls that fetches the captcha picture.

     try to register in "Safe mode"?
    Know nothing about Apple computers but others report their virus program/other software/even spyware interfering with Captcha

    I have the same problem, with both Chrome and Firefox, I also tried with two different IP addresses, so I'm almost sure it's not a problem caused by my computer or connection.

    For Windows pays to download free version of Ccleaner   
    Be warned it may need extra program to be unchecked (tries to load other software), no need to update (it is nag-ware) but your choice.
    It will clean out all cookies, but you can select "options" to save needed cookies

    I've noticed alot of my spam reports are going to abuse[AT]google[DOT]com.   Here is one from a few minutes ago

    you need to BEFORE submitting spam report to look at page top to get a tracking URL
    Here is your TRACKING URL - it may be saved for future reference:

    Makes things clear as to whats happening and who is getting reports,

    Any ideas on how to deal with this (other than asking every mail ISP one uses to bypass spamrl for all one's email)?

    Become assimilated get a Gmail account, Free but you are the product 
    Best email system for clearing spam, not heard of false positives is Cisco spam filter.
    You need a email provider that uses a Cisco email server.
    You just don't get spam and there is nothing to do. You don't see it.
    A company I worked for uses them, no problems no spam, brilliant

    RE: (Administrator etc ...)


    Can one of you such bright people please advise me what this means and how I should proceed with future instances of spam from this sender?


    A few providers  do not accept SpamCop reports
    They only accept reports from the email account that received them!

    There were a number of administrators that copied the spamcop blacklist settings but changed only the dns part to point to their own blacklist and they left the text as blaming spamcop.

    Yes if the IP shows as ever being blocked by SpamCop  it would lose it's GOOD TALOS reputation
    Not uncommon for SpamCops blocklist to be falsely blamed
    However this IP has a malware infection, But never been reported by SpamCop  abuse[at]gazprombank [dot]r u.

    Thanks all for answers!

    There aren't mail in abuse[at]gazprombank[dot]ru.

    This (attached file) message received our users from recipient.

    SpamCop blocklist can be activated by a large number of emails hitting "SpamCop's spamtraps" .

    These email addresses are not public but can be scraped by "bots" from poisoned Web-sites.
    Records of such attacks are not recorded will be blocked for 24 hours from last spam.

    Two reasons for this is someone is not using a Virus scanner and a computer/device has been compromised
    or best practice for marketing is not being done "double opt-in confirmation"
    Minimum is
    How easy is it to be put on a/your mail list? 
    Your competitors may well try to sabotage your mail list by loading it with poisoned email addresses?

    I probably should have posted something about Spamazon in the July/August timeframe after a mistake I made when preparing to send a report. I fat fingered the mouse and an empty message went to Spamazon (ec2-abuse@amazon.com). The bane of my existence at that time was Parsec Cloud (and still is - keep reading - I get *very* little spam from any other sources) as at times I was receiving their garbage every other hour on weekends (all weekend).  I received the standard response as an initial response almost immediately after I accidentally clicked [send]:

    I always forward my Amazon spam to abuse [AT] amazon [DOT] com which now has stopped from amazon 
    spammer has moved to India
    Creep is using a number of Indian IP's but same fingerprint as Amazon spam
    "contact[AT]gyaneshwarcomputer[DOT]com"  "abuse[AT]alphainfonet[DOT]com"  "admin[AT]mukeshtech[DOT]com"

    The "Show Original" option and then "Copy to clipboard" and then I paste into the submission field in SC and submit. Those emails are the only one I have problems with. All other emails go through fine.

    That's all I do with mine
    Seems though when spammer sends though gmail to gmail becomes a intranet SpamCop cannot parse
    Just report as phishing and gmail will deal with it
