geofan49 Posted September 26, 2006 Share Posted September 26, 2006 I get 5 or more similar spams per day from bezeqint.net, originating from several new, different email addresses each day, but an IP address for bezeqint.net is always involved. This spam is coming in via several internal company mailing lists or aliases. The spammers may have queried the mail server to harvest these addresses some time ago. This has been going on daily for many, many months. The spams contain no way to unsubscribe, no links, not even a valid email address. The originators are often from yahoo, hotmail, or other free email addresses or obscure ISPs. Sometimes headers are forged. Their purpose seems to be publishing stock tips. WHY would anyone be interested in anonymous (and suspicious) stock tips? Why do the spamers persist? It appears that the spammer makes a business of signing up for free email addresses, and sending out their volumes of spam. Then they quit using the addresses, and repeat that HIT-AND-RUN procedure several times a day, with new originating email addresses. The originating mail usually comes from: 18.104.22.168 or other IP addresses that all get reported to: abuse[at]bezeqint.net, an ISP loacated in Israel? There are always several new, different email originator addresses each day, but abuse[at]bezeqint.net is always on the reporting list in SPAMCOP. For about two weeks now, I have reported this spam on SPAMCOP.net, about once a day, for one or two of the originating email addresses, but to no avail. I have marked it as spam in GMAIL, also to no avail. Still getting five or six similar spams per day. Should I continue to report these to SPAMCOP.NET? How often? Daily? How many per day? (There are different originators, but bezeqint.net is always in the mix.) Should I report daily for each different originating address, or just once per day for bezeqint? What does it take to shut off this kind of spam? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
