  1. WOW!!! Quick SUCCESS on squashing one of the three domains. Never realized it was so easy. This is totally FUN!!! I am awaiting word on the initial spamvertised domain WorkFor375.com, as well as the end domain where the business is actually done (TrustedSurveys.com). The middle domain that the first one redirects to (TrustedSSurveys.com) is the one I just now got shut down. Like I said earlier, I should have reported the end domain first. Oh, well.) What I did on this, was go around the WhoisGuard'ed domain names and go to ARIN to find out who had the IP addresses and was able to find out who hosted the sites that way. Works REALLY great! At the end, I sent a gloating email to the email address mentioned on the end website that actually does the spamvertised business. I couldn't help myself. Why not? Steve ==================== Hello, Thank you for notifying us. I have suspended the website trustedssurveys.com.

The following is information regarding someone who is spamming a work-at-home scam using the domain workfor375.com, which redirects to trustedssurveys.com The domain trustedssurveys.com (note there is a doubled 's') has been obfuscated because the person is using Namecheap.com's Whoisguard service. HOWEVER, the IP address that trustedssurveys.com points to is According to ARIN, that IP address is in your CIDR block. Can you please look into de-allocating/de-registering that IP address? I will forward the spam to you with all headers right after this email, but the domain name referred to is clearly in the spam and it redirects to the domain having the IP address in your CIDR block.

  2. OK, very good. I'll abide by the rules. I registered with knujon.com, am trying to register with complainterator.com (although their site seems to be timing out when I attempt) and I sent an email to see about having the latter two domains added to Bill Stearn's blacklist. WorkFor375.com I noticed is already on the WS list, but that doesn't stop the problem like squashing the domains will. Think I hit all the bases possible.
  3. Very EXCELLENT reply Steve (my name is Steve as well). How would I go about 'dummying' the submission to add the spamvertised website? I will check out the tools you mentioned, so that may take out the necessity of doing it that way and make my question moot. The other thing I was thinking about, is that there is probably a better strategy of reporting spamvertised websites in the case of a redirected domain and a link to a domain. I should probably go after the domain at the end of the line and work my way up, because if the domains farther out get reported last, they may not see the connection to the domain that I had to get to before that one if it was shut down already. I didn't think about that initially and reported workfor375.com first (yesterday), then the redirected domain trustedssurveys.com right afterward, and then the link from the redirected domain (trustedsurveys.com) was reported today. Shoulda did it the other way. Oops!
  4. The reporting tool is missing the spamvertised website mentioned in the headers and the body of the spam below (my email and others obfuscated for privacy reasons). The name of the domain is workfor375.com. I had to do the legwork myself and reported that domain, the domain it redirects to (trustedssurveys.com) and the domain that webpage contains a link to (trustedsurveys.com) as well as all three IP addresses to their respective hosting/allocating companies. When I used spamcop on the spam below, all it reported to was Yahoo. ============================================================ Return-path: <thezeroplan128[at]yahoo.com> Envelope-to: <OBFUSCATED FOR PRIVACY REASONS> Delivery-date: Sun, 06 May 2012 03:34:52 -0500 Received: from nm16-vm1.bullet.mail.bf1.yahoo.com ([]) by server509.webhostingpad.com with smtp (Exim 4.69) (envelope-from <thezeroplan128[at]yahoo.com>) id 1SQwvY-0047HO-EC for <OBFUSCATED FOR PRIVACY REASONS>; Sun, 06 May 2012 03:34:52 -0500 Received: from [] by nm16.bullet.mail.bf1.yahoo.com with NNFMP; 06 May 2012 08:34:47 -0000 Received: from [] by tm8.bullet.mail.bf1.yahoo.com with NNFMP; 06 May 2012 08:34:47 -0000 Received: from [] by omp1049.mail.bf1.yahoo.com with NNFMP; 06 May 2012 08:34:47 -0000 X-Yahoo-Newman-Property: ymail-5 X-Yahoo-Newman-Id: 248258.25919.bm[at]omp1049.mail.bf1.yahoo.com Received: (qmail 95838 invoked by uid 60001); 6 May 2012 08:34:47 -0000 DKIM-Signature: v=1; a=rsa-sha256; c=relaxed/relaxed; d=yahoo.com; s=s1024; t=1336293287; bh=iLdWCppUyJWwtTtwpaXIbQtCd9bWuEy8P1VLHBZrY58=; h=X-YMail-OSG:Received:X-Mailer:Message-ID:Date:From:Reply-To:Subject:To:Cc:MIME-Version:Content-Type; b=pOe5jE9noygec3LcP2Sjhym3zN39aNMDzO3lttjyLv4ZXtBfhSuAEXTLCSYnAGyeF1rOEPwYPpX/zgufkDjB9I1OX/TmpB7QA9ABKWwbAeC6uT6VgkzBlBY8CAdyhPwc2zxLGSErr9xUIu90fQDJZ0uMpQe9NnWnu+EbxLUYgXQ= DomainKey-Signature:a=rsa-sha1; q=dns; c=nofws; s=s1024; d=yahoo.com; h=X-YMail-OSG:Received:X-Mailer:Message-ID:Date:From:Reply-To:Subject:To:Cc:MIME-Version:Content-Type; b=TQtMk7TgXQUstyeoWuy4IpDHpe+J0e5rmgOjP2I/N6nxZwzXquRJTisZbxZmaTYM4d+ilUxpuaavJRvK7IUQLbz2M//u0U2W1uiGGGDX0pvZrnuKM8jX6ih4wwIvhRTCpA0SSpX0QJX5tCW1F7L7IJjnGwADG7SaBQR/2J6nKDk=; X-YMail-OSG: hkaRdlgVM1nA_VtrXS9FUDyXbNIPiQWwpyk9_qhcYl91fZx VT1v0yTlsHH.VWiJ52buboOrlac6qHn6Fe27BqOODJn4zVHpUgTRl3gnCuzq laRah9rIxXvfaymszNJgt1VbR28ikBURSt1vU10qnvMjS1.8omc7ubB6V0_a 3U5dFqmypzclf0XLA_ViVk7NNvgM.uExTBVVX2nsppmaZQMo8veRRGuYjAWi OhdDO8HXOMtn4jEXDOu9p6VG1iCJ1Cddz9_71lJZuNCpgQ7ApubIRmb3yptO 6fXZaQbNGRlbIEe_OCTmGmfgfsoPj8o3sHe.r_Dit4ngxjegnh6_lyfIz85c L40gRPiZj1FWPpROvutCUgPZeieeR5y1IyAtpZNuOXatv4pGxAy5PZuX3.uw PkURDkjX3wq8hhUSdPO5dUA36jBdNYRQIzHYv8nhp6KfoEEuU.ymszV7vetj htwBD4eh07UKioGBvrbiJ465XCcGfIFGjfOE.YD8xCnZKiaKSxX.fhlBM3_B NqFcztSaPfspD4EafY4IO4v_mnMp9x9IJ6ALhyFn0JORf2HRyZjYBtdnMVXW pWWpJ0cQ2ykCeVbe0_40MQUhpKRku3YU- Received: from [] by web161802.mail.bf1.yahoo.com via HTTP; Sun, 06 May 2012 01:34:47 PDT X-Mailer: YahooMailWebService/ Message-ID: <1336293287.86220.YahooMailRC[at]web161802.mail.bf1.yahoo.com> Date: Sun, 6 May 2012 01:34:47 -0700 (PDT) From: Jake Bufton <thezeroplan128[at]yahoo.com> Reply-To: Jake Bufton <thezeroplan128[at]yahoo.com> Subject: hey, i have a question about your ad To: mikaisme at hotmail dot com [NOTE: probably a test address or a mailing list address] Cc: <OBFUSCATED FOR PRIVACY REASONS> MIME-Version: 1.0 Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii X-spam-Status: No, score=1.7 X-spam-Score: 17 X-spam-Bar: + X-Ham-Report: spam detection software, running on the system "server509.webhostingpad.com", has identified this incoming email as possible spam.
