Hanco Posted October 14, 2019 Share Posted October 14, 2019 Has this happened before? Look at that green “spam submitted” line in the screenshot I attached. Normally spam submitted leads to a higher volume of reports. October though? We see a significant amount of spam reported with reports not sent. If my experience is anything to go by, there was a major increase from one group of spammers (phishing activity actually, but not the overt fake Apple sites, Amazon, Walmart, Netflix etc login pages) And it was mostly email coming from Amazon IP addressees, which I always see SpamCop track but not send reports. Instead, I send the reports directly myself. But is that what this month’s driver was? The group behind these daily deals of loan offers, warranty offers, cures for bizarre conditions etc.? They seemed to be quiet, then boom, daily 12-25 emails. Mostly sites with domain names from Namecheap (they said to someone in response to a domain abuse report, that they have a “huge volume” of support requests at the moment) It seems like volume is down now (or the jerks behind the flow do not work weekends) and Amazon are “caught up” on the backlog of reports. Maybe the green line will go back below the blue... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
