Abuse contact for 162.208.32.165 should be hostmaster[at]arin.net

4 posts in this topic

Reasoning: It currently is going to postmaster[at]wayfair.com, the offender itself,  The company has registered their own IP addresses with ARIN.

Per ARIN Web site ( , abuses such as spam need to go to:

postmaster[at]arin.net

 

I am currently getting unsolicited/unconfirmed commercial spam from them on a daily basis now.

I see the reporting address has been changed to arin-notice[at]wayfair.com.

 

What is the significance of this?

arin-notice@wayfair.com is the contact address shown in the WHOIS records (see https://whois.arin.net/rest/nets;q=162.208.32.165?showDetails=true&showARIN=false&showNonArinTopLevelNet=false&ext=netref2), which will be why that's being used as the reporting address.  If wayfair.com are the spammer themselves, then this isn't a case of SpamCop not finding the correct reporting address (i.e. a routing issue), it's a case of reports needing to be DevNulled.  ARIN are an address registry - they and the other Regional Internet Registries (ARIN covers North America, RIPE for Europe & Middle East, APNIC for Asia/Pacific, LACNIC for Latin America & Caribbean, & AFRINIC for Africa) ensure that IP address assignments are globally unique, but don't control what people do with the IP addresses that have been assigned by them.

I am aware what ARIN does, but if they are using it to abuse email, then I think they would have the authority to revoke those addresses.

 

And instead of DevNull why not just send to spam[at]uce.gov?
