419 email report abuse@ocn.ad.jp auto responder ?

Recommended Posts

I apologize in advance if this is not the correct forum or if this idea is wrong or not in line with the forums guidelines ( i tried searching but could not find anything )

 

here is the basic idea : of late i have been receiving 419 scam email from the ip address  which the under the control of abuse@ocn.ad.jp  and every time i report i get a auto responded from them reproduced below 

Dear Sir/Madam,

Thank you very much for your e-mail.

We will deal with this situation once we figure out who the user is.

We are very sorry for any inconvenience this matter has caused you.


Thank you again for reaching out to us.
Respectfully,

 

now this comes with a Tracking number in the header,

 

Will it make sense to send the a report to additionally report to

  info@jpcert.or.jp, abuse@ocn.ad.jp, sec@jnsa.org, info@jc3.or.jp

to compel ocn.ad.jp to find the customer responsible and terminate the connection or deal according to the AUP ?  i know this goes against spamcop's policy not to send email to people not related to the incident but this problem has not been addressed long and all the email addresses are related to cyber security incidents in japan. and I am thinking that open relay SMTP is a cyber security problem also.

would this work ?

Hello HeatherReid43,

  • Re "selecting SCF category for posts"

Never let concerns about where to post stop you from posting, there's very good & helpful SCF people who'll move any "misplaced" post to the correct location.

  • Re "escalating ongoing spam that is not being addressed"

Sometimes rules are meant to be broken, oftentimes fighting spam makes rule breaking mandatory😎

  • Specific to "419 scam email"

Are you able to post us a Spamcop Report URL please?  {He means a Tracking URL}

It'll look similar to: 

https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z-very long-number-z😊  at the top of your submitted SC report.

Cheers!

Hello HeatherReid43,

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

  • Reading the 5pg post, I'm not sure ocn.ad.jp, can be/will be compelled to do anything, however, me personally, I'd forward any unattentioned spam to all of the addresses you've listed, include in the forwarded email: the offending ip/s & a note, e.g. "X is being used by criminals to distribute unsolicited phishing spam".

Please let us know if you have any success.

Cheers!

 .

Success: i don't know what happened but following up on every case it seems that suddenly all the 419 emails from ocn have stopped 

 

previously i was getting 10 emails per day now it down to 1 email every 5 days or so. even that is an exception rather than norm.
