kensey Posted December 8, 2005 Share Posted December 8, 2005 I own the domain orion-com.com. In the last few months I seem to have gotten on the bad side of ROKSO spammer Alex Blood/"Ryan Kelly": periodically a massive spam run advertising URLs traceable to him will use From: addresses that reference my domain. Since I have a blind forward on my domain, invalid-address bounces actually show up in my mailbox, though helpfully pre-sorted into the "spam" folder. Since the domain is itself my online identity in a way, is it worth tracking and reporting the various websites advertised to the host services (usually Chinanet or Kornet)? Is there any effective recourse for an American whose identity is in some degree being impersonated by a Ukrainian (moreover, a Ukrainian whose business is registered in Belize and whose hosting is in various places in eastern Asia)? Interestingly the first version of this was a series of messages (about one every day or two, for months) purporting to originate from orion[at]orion-com.com, sent to orion[at]orion-company.ru, which kept getting bounced back from orion-company.ru because of virus-infected attachments. I complained to the ISP of the originating machine (Communications Enterprises Ltd., in Guatemala), and when that initially had no results, to their upstream provider (Sprint). After the second complaint, the impersonation runs started. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
