PhilS32767 Posted January 29, 2004 Share Posted January 29, 2004 Back before the new Invision board was set up, I started this thread on the spamcop.help newsgroup, and JeffG provided the (non-wacka'ed) responses. I have a few additional categories to request effective 3rd party followup suggestions for: * University diploma "mills" * "Find out secret information about anybody" gambits * Selling the "banned" CD that the government doesn't want you to have :-O * Too-good-to-be-true mortgage/loan offers (3rd parties other than uce at ftc.gov?) * See pay-per-view/cable TV for free gambits (3rd parties other than one's own ISP, which is usually not a directly interested 3rd party?) * Copy DVDs in your computer's CD burner gambits (3rd parties other than software at bsa.org?) * Pornography or sex sites/ads/propositions other than child pornography Any useful suggestions welcome. Perhaps a distillation of all of the suggestions could be made a pinned topic? -- Phil > I've seen the following short list of suggested 3rd party recipients > for spam reports on various posts here in the forums: > > Send your mlm plans and credit plans to uce at ftc.gov > Copy health aids & enhancement pill programs to otcfraud at > cder.fda.gov > African generals and ex-ministers please reply to 419.fcd at > usss.treas.gov > Enforcement at sec.gov is most interested in your secret stock tips. > > Webmaster at bsa.org has been suggested, in addition, for spam > selling software.
