Turkish ISP without a clue... :SIGH:

It is rare to get a response from an ISP to a spam report so my hopes were high when I heard from these guys. But it seems that their view is that spam is OK if it comes from a good customer who is only trying to do business... :(

The original Email talked about proving me with 'gift accounts' and becoming a 'franchise partner'. Still smells like spam to me... Needless to say I'm not withdrawing the report.

The message that you have received is sent by one of our customers "Lonak

Trade Network. It is the biggest and respected Logistics B2B network in

Middle East. We called them and they told us, they have received some e-mail

addresses from government's related department and an advise list to develop

business relations between Turkey and EU. They do not think these are spam

mails, also the mail has been sent only once, we do not understand how

people can be disturbed by one e-mail and for such an offer. There is not

anything illegal in e-mail body. It's one of our customers and we have

another customers at the same server. Companies also can invite their

colleagues from the website, when a company wants to be removed from

newsletter or invitation program, they can do that.

Membership for that website is for hundred dollars, they send freight offers

by e-mail, more than 100K e-mails per day. And none of ISP was disturbed

because of this, when they but the mails to their spam lists, their

customers request them correct it because they pay to receive the mails.

I request from you to remove your complaint, we warned them to remove the

user's e-mail from their newsletter or whatever they used.

Sounds like the crap responses I get from American ISP's when I contact them directly with a report that an IP has a "Typhoid Mary" on it :angry:

Good luck!

They have no right to send unsolicited offers to private addresses under UK and EU regulations. But the words don't matter - actions do. You *might* need to use their 'unsubscribe' link if they persist, if only to demonstrate your compliance with the 'cease and desist' (by whatever name) provisions should they continue even past that and you have to institute PECR action through ICO - http://www.ico.gov.uk/what_we_cover/privac...unications.aspx

If Turkey wants to progress its EU candidacy then its businesses had better start learning to play by the rules.
