NeilMaybin Posted May 1, 2005 Share Posted May 1, 2005 I have reported spam for some time now, though anonymously. This evening I received a second message, apparently spam, which appears to be a malicious attempt to get me to incriminate my own ISP. http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z758760541z98...d3fc7114b5267cz In it, the spam arrives from 18.104.22.168 (the Spammer's real or forged SMTP server or relay), which is untrusted by Spamcop. Spamcop then picks up my receiving ISP's address 22.214.171.124 as the spammer. If I were to report several of these, the result would be that 126.96.36.199 would be blacklisted and so Spamcop would classify all legitimate e-mails for me as spam. (Not to mention the inconvenience for my receiving ISP). Have the Spammers really developed an "own-goal" spam bomb? Or is there another explanation?
