littleblubunnie Posted November 29, 2005 Share Posted November 29, 2005 My yellow brick road has seems to have come to a dead end. At 3:00 pm Wednesday November 23rd One of my customers called to inform me he was receiving unsolicited spam from a realty company every 15 minutes. After several minutes (he's on a 56k connection) he was finally able to download all of his mail. All 736, 732 of which were duplicates of the same e-mail from the realty company. My husband and I own a small dial-up internet company with a ZERO tolerance for spammers. That being said we called the realty company only to be informed that their e-mail server had been hacked and someone (hacker) was redirecting their mail, and that I should contact their main office. Their main office responded by telling me the computer in question had been unplugged and directed me to their IT Director. I had to give the director the full header of the e-mail in question to show where it was coming from and that it was still being received. The ITD told me it was a problem with the mail server (duh!) and said he needed to get in touch with their ISP. This was 2 days ago. I have contacted the ISP in question and still have not received any response. Through my search over the internet I have found nothing in reference to how to deal with an ISP that is allowing Spamming on their network. Or how to get their attention so they will see this as a serious situation. If anyone has any advice I would immensely appreciate it. Moderator Edit: Please refraim from using the term "spam" in all caps. This is a registered trade mark belonging to Hormel Foods identifying their canned meat product. Internet spam should never be spelled in all caps (usage has been edited in this post and title). Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
