ocn.ad.jp spam

13 posts in this topic

Lately I don't get a huge amount of spam but it seems like almost all the spam I do get ends up being reported to abuse[at]ocn.ad.jp.    There seems to be no letup in the quantity though, so am wondering if ocn.ad.jp is actually a known spammer friendly provider of some kind?

I don't know about ocn.ad.jp but it would seem so.

If you would go back to one of the spam you have reported and looking at the reports sent you will find their IP address (SpamCop tracks IP addresses not domains) you could then go to https://www.spamcop.net/w3m?action=map and find the reputation of their IP address.

apparently this provider is a major spam gateway, seems like sending spam reports to them is an exercise in futility

Submitting spam does feed the blocklist though.

Would help if you gave a trking url?
even a IP address.
In the mean time have no idea what you are on about?

I get too many spams latelly from ocn.ad.jp Can we do anything to this provider? Just block all of their clients. That should make them think once their normal clients start complaining for non delivered emails.

Also it is kind of funny. Gmail delivers email from this forum into spam box. Just FYI

As you can tell from this year long thread, some spammers don't change.  Reporting all spam from ocn.ad.jp and their clients that use IP addresses controlled by them, will help keep their IPs on the SpamCop block list.

Yes, many ISP's use rather dumb filters, based on domain names - not IP addresses, to filter incoming email.  Why someone would think a spammer would include the word 'spam' in their domain name and use that to filter email, I do not know.  I believe you should be able to add SpamCop.net to your white list to over-ride the basic filtering.

I also find that a major portion of my spams are coming from their servers and I don't think abuse@ goes anywhere but into their trash. 

The address that I received emails from when I contacted them directly regarding spams is 'abuse_support@ocn.ad.jp' of which the address is listed as the "OCN Internet Security Team".

It's pretty clear this ISP is itself a criminal organization: I've reported an IP address of theirs for sending 419 scam message over 140 times during the past year and it still continues, 3-4 times a day.

As a follow up on my post above, I've now filed 300+ reports on 419 scam messages sent from the ocn.ad.jp system.  The content of the messages varies but it's clearly coming from one spammer.  ocn.ad.jp does nothing about it--I get 1-4 scam messages from them every day.  And if you check the Spamcop statistics for the top targets of spam reports, ocn.ad.jp is almost always in the top ten.

 

There are only two logical explanations: either it is an utterly incompetent ISP or it is actively collaborating with 419 scam criminals.

I've begged ocn.ad.jp to block any outgoing mail to my Gmail account but they don't respond.  I've requested that Gmail blacklist them but didn't get a response to that either.  I have a Gmail filter to automatically send any incoming mail from ocn.ad.jp  to the trash but the irresponsibility of this slimeball ISP still annoys me.

It is never a good idea or productive to ask a spammer to removed you address from their emailing list.  They view any contact from you as conformation that a real person does read their email and that is success for  them. See Spammer Rules, Rule #1, Finnell's Corollary.

A more direct way to keep these spam out of your inbox is have your ISP block them or use your email app to direct them to a spam folder.  I assume you are reporting your spam to SC.  This may not help you directly, depending on how your ISP handles incoming email, but it does help others filter their email.

send a report to your email address then use the SECRET link contained in it

User-targeted report, see notes, if any.

this will show you replies to your reports if any
