    Report History of my IP address

    Thanks guys. I've already been in contact with the TIO regarding this (as have a few others who have been hit with these charges) and if it's not resolved by them I'll be contacting the Department of Fair Trading. I was just posting here to get some more information so that when I talk to the TIO again I can explain exactly what the situation is. The ISP has been very reluctant to provide any detailed information so I have been forced to do all the leg work myself. Thanks once again. PS: Ijust wanted to make it clear that the ISP in question is not Nextep, as detailed in the abuse[at] email address. They are simply the wholesale provider. The ISP issuing these bills is a totally separate entity.

    Report History of my IP address

    Thanks. So what that means in the case of my ISP and their policy on SpamCop reports is that if someone reports any of my messages as spam, regardless of whether it actually is spam or not, I am out of pocket $25. Nice...... (not blaming Spamcop)

    Report History of my IP address

    Thanks Derek. One further question - I understand from http://spamcop.net/fom-serve/cache/297.html that a single user report should not result in an IP address being blacklisted (which is not a concern anyway as I'm not running a server) but should a single report result in a notification email being sent to the relevant 'abuse[at]nnnnnnn' address?

    Report History of my IP address

    That's what I've been trying to tell my ISP. They claim the charge ($25 per incident) is to cover the costs they incur in investigating the report from SpamCop, but have refused to provide the results of their supposed investigation. My own investigation at this end has come up with a grand total of nothing, so I'd like to see what my ISP is seeing at their end. I've had it for about 6 months - since I joined this particular ISP. Is it possible that one of these infected machines in my netblock is spoofing my IP address? And that's the one I'm interested in. (even though I have been charged for the same thing twice....) Thanks for the help. I've sent a message to the deputies asking for more information. (is the correct address still 'deputies at spamcop dot net' ?)
  5. Hi guys. I’ve got a query that I’m hoping someone here can help me out with. I was recently charged $50 by my ISP for allegedly sending spam from my account. They have provided no logs or any other details, but instead have provided me with 2 SpamCop reference numbers, which are 1985607600 and 1985607607. My IP address is I am disputing the charges with them and would like to see the details of these spam reports so that I can see for myself precisely what I am being accused of. Is it an open relay (unlikely as I'm not running a mail server), trojan/worm ( AV is up to date, running Windows defender and PC is actually a virtual machine that is restored weekly) or something else all together? http://members.spamcop.net/mcgi?slice=repo...ion=showhistory shows that there was a report made in late October, but doesn't provide a whole lot of information. I was wondering if anyone knows if it's possible for me to get any more information than this. It's a bit hard to fix a problem if you don't know what it is. Thanks in advance.
