bobbear Posted August 9, 2005 Share Posted August 9, 2005 Received the usual run of the mill bogus lottery criminal fraud spam with a 'winners' response address of prize_winners[at]promotionaluk-info.com No problem deciding it is an MSN personal email address registered by the criminal, (try http://promotionaluk-info.com/) Spamcop parses it as: host promotionaluk-info.com (checking ip) = 188.8.131.52 host 184.108.40.206 = pamx1.hotmail.com (cached) Routing details for 220.127.116.11 [refresh/show] Cached whois for 18.104.22.168 : abuse[at]hotmail.com Using abuse net on abuse[at]hotmail.com abuse net hotmail.com = abuse[at]hotmail.com Using best contacts abuse[at]hotmail.com Using rdns to route to correct Microsoft department host 22.214.171.124 = pamx1.hotmail.com (cached) abuse net pamx1.hotmail.com = abuse[at]hotmail.com Great, so I have a choice of abuse[at]msn.com (the obvious one I'd normally use), or abuse[at]hotmail.com as suggested by SpamCop for the Mx, or even abuse[at]microsoft.com for the IP address (from ARIN) abuse[at]hotmail.com automatically bounce the report - "not hotmail address" abuse[at]msn.com manually bounce the report - "not msn address" abuse[at]microsoft.com simply don't respond...... I have this trouble time and time again with getting these these MSN personal email address accounts closed - the abuse teams don't seem to be across it at all even though you spell it out for them - anyone else come across this problem? Any suggestions?.... EDIT: Finally got a reporting address for these out of MSN. It's: abuse_personaladdress[at]css.one.microsoft.com Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
