  1. It's working now, most of yesterdays spam is too old but ONE made it.... and as usual, GOOGLE and devnull which means it goes nowhere right? I don't know why I bother anymore. THESE are useless. abuse#sendgrid.com@devnull.spamcop.net google-cloud-compliance@google.com
  2. I keep getting this when I try to report spam. copy; [an error occurred while processing this directive] Tried two browsers, same thing. It's 12:20 am EST right now, on a mac 10.13.6 firefox.... (tried opera too) Guess the spammers get away with it tonight. Well lately (99% of it comes from google and now that goes to some devnull thing.)
  3. Well todays array of paypal phishing scams this time went through spamcop to googles abuse department just fine. Someone fixed something here. As for google? MY GOD they suck. I've been on the internet since the mid 90s. The ONLY email I ever actually had hacked was my first gmail account. And the ONLY "support" to be found is their forum board which you have to be logged in just to access. Great! Fast forward to today? My youtube account stopped functioning right. Youtube actually has support on twitter so been going around with them. After I got past the multiple replies to clear my cookies cache history change browsers spin clockwise and whistle dixie, I tried sending an email to the email account needed to have a youtube account. And viola. It's been blocked. So now support says it's been hacked. They had me set up a new mail address but did NOT move my channel to it so kinda useless. Told me it would take weeks for their hacked accounts department to figure this out. That was MONTHS ago now. Actually I found it rather odd they even have a "hacked accounts department." Must get hacked quite a bit huh? Google really needs their monopoly broken up some. They got way too big and too powerful.
  4. I get a LOT of phishing scams, supposedly from apple and/or paypal. I send them ALL through spamcop and those two I also forward to spoof at (insert which) Since these almost ALWAYS come from google, I have been also forwarding copies directly to them. Some time ago google started shooting back auto responders sending me in endless circles to fill out their form. Yea na. So I stopped trying, only send through spamcop and directly to those spoof departments. So today? WTF is this? copy; google_refuses_emailed_reports AT devnull.spamcop.net WHY is this even allowed? WE cannot refuse the garbage coming out of google. But reporting it can be refused now? Spamcop I really think you should NOT be allowing this at all. And just when will companies being used as scam bait actually prosecute? First holding the companies like google accountable to some degree, that alone would be incentive enough to get the company involved in locating the spammer and arresting anyone attempting to cheat other people. You cannot tell me GOOGLE can't detect just where spam is coming from. Meanwhile what is the point in even using spamcop for these two phishing scams now? It ALWAYS comes back with google as the source. So if google can flat out refuse the reports? Why bother reporting? (I still will send to apple and paypal.)
  5. Just dial *67 before dialing out. That will block your caller id. Keep in mind, some people can also block calls coming in from blocked caller ids.
  6. Oh wow that's incredible! Good to know too. Makes me feel like all the time I waste reporting spam might actually go somewhere and do some good. We need more like that guy. Now what about all the spam that comes out of other countries? (or at least seems to.) Our courts mean nothing to say China or Russia.
  7. Wow you spent more time on this than I ever would. I really wish I could personally meet a spammer. I'd come armed with rusty pliers and aim for the groin. Well I can dream can't I? Not to go too far off topic here, but this is REALLY funny. He does a few of these, I'll only post one. It's really a hoot. We need some laughs once in awhile right? how to deal with spam
  8. Yea well.... not sure you want a saga here, but I HAD email with my domain name. Probably still could if I wanted. And I tried using a form, captcha (which I hate btw) BOTH got hacked. Repeatedly. And I got in trouble after sending through spamcop because somehow it went to my domain host. Once that was made known to me I just let it go. Finally for my website what works, though I know is inconvenient, I just uploaded an image of my email address. People have to type it into their email. Yea it's a pain but it put a stop to spambots. I don't want to use my computers email since I am seldom on the same computer. Yahoo I can access anywhere. First email I ever had was on hotmail. (Still have it too.) But over the years they changed for the worst more and more... I check in about once a year just to keep it as a back up but I don't use it. One day, while I was communicating with a customer no less, hotmail went down. I quickly set up shop on yahoo. And like everything, every "up" grade is actually a downgrade. I use the oldest "classic" version I can. Keep it simple. Now you probably haven't used yahoo in a long time. They don't have the option to block emails anymore. Not that it ever did any good since spammers just make up new ones. All they have is a "mark it as spam" and it lands on a spam folder. That's it. And with their last "up yours grade" the spam folder no longer even shows me if new messages came in unless I go look. And I have to because good messages land in there all the time. BUT... so far, yahoo is still way better than hotmail (or mail.com, got one there too. They are the worst.) On a bad day I might get a dozen spam messages. Yesterday I only got one. So over all tolerable. This is kinda like summer. You'll never be rid of mosquitoes. Just keep swatting.
  9. I have heard of spamassassin. Ok, NOT being a computer tech here, how would I use spamassassin with yahoo email on a mac computer. If that's even possible? I think it's not. Tried looking up spamassassin's site but all I can see is using some "gloc app" or something like that. Again, COMPUTER. I NEVER do email on my phone. Aren't "apps" for the phone? See? NOT a techno geek here. Please explain this like your talking to your grandma ok?
  10. I get them EVERY DAY. Sometimes, like today only one. Other times 9 or more. Disturbingly it seems quite a pick up in either paypal or apple phishing scams too. THOSE I forward directly to their spoof at address as well as spamcop. Until the next batch rolls in. I really wish someone would come up with a way of bouncing spam right back to who ever sent it. And if it's not bounceable? say some wanky forged return address? Then it's not deliverable either. Never would get any if this were the case.
  11. No, got a keto note today. Only one though. So perhaps something got shut down. I really wish instead of just deleting the users account someone would go after them legally. Among all the sales crap I regularly get paypal or apple phishing scams. THOSE I send directly to paypal or apple spoof at. These spammers really need to be rotting in jail for attempting to rob people.
  12. Not mine. Not a bit. Got ONE yesterday that was not from google. NINE that were. I don't think google even looks at spamcop complaints. But... I will keep reporting anyway.
  13. My spam has been increasing. From yesterday to today, doubled! And so far ALL coming from google.
  14. I report it all assuming I check within 2 days of it showing up. That account in question I don't always. But yea, report it all. If everyone did this it would stop so much faster. Thanks again for spamcop. best service out there.
  15. First off, I do NOT use Gmail. Oh I have an account but only to use youtube. I do almost all my email on yahoo. And this is fairly recent, the uptick in spam coming from google. If I forward it directly to google, IF I get a reply at all, it's usually some long winded techno thing on how it didn't come from them, they are only a service... yada yada. My point here is why all of a sudden? Yahoo (even my spam bait account) was down to only a few spam messages a week. And usually from any number of sources. Now? ALL GOOGLE and some 9 or more a day. Almost all with similar messages. Something medical. Burn fat, keto diet, pills.... like that. I got on someones spam list and that spammer just happens to be abusing google. I would hope after they got enough complaints they might track it down. Or not. Frankly I think google got too big to care about anyone.
  16. hi all, Ok, I have several email accounts but one in particular I use specifically for things likely to harvest me and spam me to death. It's always been my "disposable" account (on yahoo) but so far Yahoo has done a pretty fair job of separating junk from email, AND I haven't had much spam. A few a day, if that. BUT lately, just about EVERY piece after running through spamcop shows up as google as the source. Does google even care about spamcop complaints? Cause they sure don't care about user complaints directly, (about ANYTHING.) If filing spamcop complaints does any good at all I will continue. But if there is no point, perhaps just deleting would be easier. If this won't stop, or slow it down, what's the point?
  17. petzl I seem to remember that bt.com coming up in the past. When I see an email address I sometimes DO forward copies directly. Pretty sure that one only sends back some long winded BS auto responder which I don't even bother reading. I don't know if they care or not. RobiBue LOVE THIS... "Confirmation of Spammer's Rules Rule #3: Spammers are stupid, and Spinosa's Corollary: Spammers assume everybody is more stupid than themselves." So sad though that there are actually people even stupider than spammers. Must be or they would be out of business. Meanwhile.... today, in my out there for everyone junk email address I got NOT ONE spam message today. (so far.) So spamcop really does work. Seems even the ones that are dev/nul or where ever, must be doing something somehow huh? I got hammered right around Christmas, and barely mid Jan it's stopped. WOOHOOO!!!!!
  18. Ok, guys, I'm NOT a computer geek here. Beyond some very basic and dated HTML code, that's it. I do get dev/nul so ok, basically I've been wasting my time reporting these at all? They are going nowhere??? Then... TRYING to figure out what your telling me here, "described in https://www.cert-in.org.in/SecurityIncident.jsp" Well get "Requested URL not found." from https://dnslytics.com/ip/, I would add a report to the ASN abuse found through https://dnslytics.com/bgp/as132779 as well... that is, a report also to 'admin@rackbank.com' Not a clue what to do with this. "I would add a report to..." HOW? Through spamcop? Listen, I have used spamcop for years now. I've promoted using it to many others. Take the time to send spam through it. But that's about all the time I care to waste on this. Especially if the spammers found a way to send through some non address that is the same as dev/nul Spamcop must be doing SOMETHING though. It only took a matter of weeks until my sudden flood of spam dwindled down to one a day. (That one yesterday and an unrelated "fed ex can't deliver your atm card" bs that also seems to report to nowhere. Here in case your interested in this one. Seems I get that message on a regular basis. (Spammers really are a stupid lot aren't they? An ATM card? Fed Ex has to deliver something that could fit in an envelope? That I KNOW is not mine? Must be enough people even dumber to fall for this and probably have to send someone money first.) SpamCop v 4.9.0 © 2019 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.

Apple does, pay pal does, but they do not. Kinda drifted off topic but the point is I only got one piece of spam today. So this site really does work. Even if I don't understand just how. And the email I'm using is one I use everywhere I think it might be harvested. Survey sites I do, or if I want to bite on what I think is likely a scam, I'll use my trashable email. So it's out there. That I'm down to one spam in the morning is fantastic. Maybe I just have to wait until this particular spammer dies of old age before it stops then because I sure don't know what else to do. Thanks for trying though. But unless someone can post 1. Do this.. 2. do that... I'm out. Spamcop then delete. Move on. Life is too short.
  19. Ok, had to wait for the next one to arrive. here... SpamCop v 4.9.0 © 2019 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved. Here is your TRACKING URL - it may be saved for future reference: https://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z6512015168z11faf14ef668f295d00a184d7761a5a0z Skip to Reports
  20. Hi all, About a month or maybe two ago, seems my one email that I use in places that will likely be hyjacked got hammered. Spamcop really must work because I'm back down to the usual 2 or so a day. BUT almost every bit that is still coming shows a reporting address of some long name at gmail. SO WHY isn't google included in the list of reports sent to? Wouldn't google want to know someone using gmail is violating TOS? Or... does google even care? (Well they must, when I was being flooded almost all of them went to google network abuse. It's stopped so they must have done something.) Thanks.
  21. Some day I'll have to look up what "parsing" actually means. I have no clue what you mean by "top of the parser page." I can post what techno stuff I have. Might help some. Mac, using safari version 6.0.5 Yahoo I do NOT have their latest greatest mess. Every now and then I accidently click the "switch to newest yahoo" link. Then have to hunt and fish for how to get basic back. Their new version blows beans. Also yahoo does not put a space between header and body. I've known that for some time. Gotta find the point where the two should be separated. Stick a few spaces in there or you get a message "no body included." Or no header, I forgot now. Just stick in the spaces.
  22. HEY! I found a work around. NO clue WHY this works, but I just sent my load of spam in. IN yahoo, next to the full header thing, is "printable view." Which opens it up in a new page and automatically shows me my printer preview which I have to cancel. But.... HA. Copy the text off that page, paste it into spamcop, add a few spaces between header and body, and viola. Goes through like it use to. Extra steps but not that bad. I don't get so much spam that I can't take the time. Now I still wish I knew what yahoo did to mess things up. But at least I found a way to still send in reports to the right place.
  23. Well I don't know. It pasted in here as a single line jumbled mess but doesn't in spamcop. Again, it's worked fine this way for a very long time. Years. Is there a way in this forum to attach a screen shot? I could show you how it looks in spamcops field. Just as it does in yahoo. I could pop it on my own website as an image file if that helps. Just past the link. I wish I knew what changed. I can't very well contact yahoo and let them know if I don't know.
  24. I'm going to take a chance here in hopes some of you more geeky people can figure out what's going on. Only pasting in the header (we all know what nigerian scams look like so I'll replace all that nonsense with the word body.) And I'm removing my email address, replacing with Xs. The rest is as it would be pasted into spamcop. Which has always worked. So.... hope this does not violate any forum rules. Again just want to see if any of you know what got ruined here as to why spamcop can't figure it out anymore. copy; Dear BeneficaryMonday, March 2, 2015 12:16 AM Mark as Unread X-Apparently-To: xxxxxxx[at]yahoo.com; Tue, 03 Mar 2015 18:22:33 +0000 Return-Path: <test[at]enertronix.com.cn> X-YahooFilteredBulk: Received-SPF: none (domain of enertronix.com.cn does not designate permitted sender hosts) X-YMailISG: YnmO.34WLDtw9wFZc2z8gemJvT6JO9JZ9LH2XAt1aUn5OUzi enzjKoMPEkCVrV2JlbItckBBmEKw0o9jkJJhx8gGJ7Yk1zp15K22WEFenjKx m.dK5AXGgwoLFsjLLtYAOVsBHCzpxiLmOELTGzBPD6kFIkj5gIMLVW0IT9VX EAcaK2MlaJHfMjOwQ1eZYc8F3WfXiobIielh60b1O6GPxkQkeDEaW64PEAnx ySiJ2FiQvSttVyux6t6sLm4nW53OgXI93lZNglrxVh3ZSNpSJWLGQ3xc1QA7 Xc2V8n9CVOrC4GCrrAuBWdg7XQlzuTFTDwYjBxB7t0Oq5yZ6nzcFEABGoLpN mzlc0QLhMVLVbSe0PoUNInnbnlXv3agwS_R2TEXW.ypq7IrMfLq_MlzLBnBk poDLz6ji3qx4jEbvmREm5ld5wXKUHKtb0eiGqFKhSedSa4FEwMC7IhBeydnn 0L9M4AC4l2Xe_EbLxvQbE5m9YtwCztqYQbG3P0hmoDLg66wtnnCoGGK9kcAk tJo5DMlSagU8fCkwweDkuNhFsq3bdCH5yIdbST3WUQClXArg1CRrp2oVHeck 9_mm8am0UqLYMYA1Y3N_WW8DUG4Jg6anbbQNxdbk7JRR0qjAUAFajyOjy47U W9h75Ze7FdhgPVdl9NZnjeQDaMxb9tcEBjPeMR8duHkSV1iEEO81F.wPR2qS wH2iZFi5fJfwiKZ9wOI3nsPfC3fkGI7YNXkztH0f1NqzRNi_Blqh3Yc3C9Oa gkdaCkO8a4FdOrzinaAJHllfCgdmk1sl9NUwKnEhSeaP22.GJQ1nKVOjHWjQ 8B8vo3bwB1Ns4AXjZVuxLS_aeODSORphiGH661UlbHl_FhuTpOqEFech8Mc1 q6bxuHGiUEPMWAElDm.eJ.82zvY7shyTLn2ilKfFhvcs2Ze.xBESmsrF2G1t 7GWOOvb_33tjHBT0cDzCg4AotzuSVqvCqzCv6WdBCaQ_xlPRXpI948LcgFPx IZvbDQf4YOrEd28pje6A219g4W_nSSERGBWlC_EGAvXSNr1EYWHBWH2zYAIH gmxz.EVvmQxiUpaLarMER4yWuRfIUMEqDouGguB2ZI_R00mtLAAtc4mZs7fM i8J5ZCS0hjF9Bpd4PYA8KaLaCTSXjv8h5L5k9nCfqsCyZRCpHLGo5Lqli3sL QCl7QxeEd6r80l2jhcA9NZIl3l8c.8OmncXTsFab.5_J8sU27wLlXSt69eqw OGhLtUTvEODWPpYzXAbM575lSRsR29g5OMs5pF65FYC9C3sq1UQM9YnsA4LE cGjq67yRUavgsgRuzm4ENY3WgOCV0iBF1BOnbbUH.agZkHLUJLle70aSCDtj utJQ4zgArlKgNcnziy5OG.69TDdeXnP7OZMRAIqgoUKnKO5XTKmvHqEP19HS B4AUJ8G61blwCnePyH6woZ.zT_QArxP9iKT0kTad0pX3uQSsKPexZ7utetZ5 J9nWr.CSRbdEWZiBBHg.4.S_p9stnpEevtDeueVYXuAHo2Oq15x5RClJ56T4 IosBc2F1YldY0Xc41oqVZjRxvAWrnhA9o2KqgZ.MqcpVaeBTiDBBWaEoVC7X jPYv_JeW9AGQhd16jzKUO3r0mH164jwJmA97jeFQycld.j09LQ5vktfZp0vh XdVqMtm1SXFjcqVaC7MdhR.SMMzobYqwQjcdDg5XniOJZw9a6NO6NomGzRx. eSrdLox7jY4tqWiYVwUHheCNo3KGjS39gYPM04ZU4rd6kkJzzDn_k8NxZ77x a6Mp2QOPAHWf1vmxXDZxP0_v6TMBh5cVzOrHFDWrvRJW4EIN3G3y9a865hbi LSVVvtOxZyucJxsmqE8YYTeFpUu0GfGecd.jLQW2Tx5g3ks4RYYZ_XT0deoH ab3OCGnS_XTKzioa7bCEasmHO367mTrSBcPZMforEyrTgifWAwDDFGwS_4Hk KniBt63.Rbm43vAbJdcVx.leJwRiqcMxZjRLkpmhQjjVDtdIvvKpWHrUWQuq 06tcFcU1QLlY2yAh5QTc_2nipWJ.K0R9swc4ex3sOqZqgTtdn4FxZuPTApAK KJQQ.eWpRweO17SWaAfRzSIBhZbKBVTHMJIW1cyBygsgAChEacaZ8.w5vuOJ mOlw4dNBrIVwpzdZzBNSy_TiB7c- X-Originating-IP: [] Authentication-Results: mta1303.mail.bf1.yahoo.com from=enertronix.com.tw; domainkeys=neutral (no sig); from=enertronix.com.tw; dkim=neutral (no sig) Received: from (EHLO mg.enertronix.com.tw) ( by mta1303.mail.bf1.yahoo.com with SMTP; Tue, 03 Mar 2015 18:22:32 +0000 Received: from localhost (localhost []) by mg.enertronix.com.tw (Postfix) with ESMTP id 34D1E337C5; Mon, 2 Mar 2015 23:03:58 +0800 (CST) X-spam-Flag: NO X-spam-Score: 4.524 X-spam-Level: **** X-spam-Status: No, score=4.524 tagged_above=2 required=6.2 tests=[ADVANCE_FEE_2=1.234, ALL_TRUSTED=-1.8, BAYES_00=-2.599, FORGED_MUA_OUTLOOK=3.116, FORGED_OUTLOOK_HTML=0.001, FORGED_OUTLOOK_TAGS=0.001, HTML_MESSAGE=0.001, MILLION_USD=1.528, MIME_HTML_ONLY=1.457, URG_BIZ=1.585] autolearn=unavailable Received: from mg.enertronix.com.tw ([]) by localhost (mg.enertronix.com.tw []) (amavisd-new, port 10024) with ESMTP id JxgqKaIYrMZa; Mon, 2 Mar 2015 23:03:57 +0800 (CST) Received: from TWDSMS01.enertronix.com.tw (twdsms01.enertronix.com.tw []) by mg.enertronix.com.tw (Postfix) with ESMTP id D5D3417560E; Mon, 2 Mar 2015 13:56:33 +0800 (CST) Received: from cnhzms01.enertronix.com.tw ([]) by TWDSMS01.enertronix.com.tw over TLS secured channel with Microsoft SMTPSVC(6.0.3790.4675); Mon, 2 Mar 2015 13:18:43 +0800 Received: from User ([]) by cnhzms01.enertronix.com.tw with Microsoft SMTPSVC(6.0.3790.4675); Mon, 2 Mar 2015 13:20:41 +0800 Reply-To: <fedex_mrcharliebill[at]hotmail.co.uk> From: "MR.
