c0ldfire Posted December 22, 2006 Share Posted December 22, 2006 Hi, First of all, Thanks for the Great Service..I consider this the leading authentic spam fighting and reporting resources over the whole Internet, I hope this service kept free and run for a very long time. Yesterday night i reported a couple of spam messages arrived to my hotmail account inbox which were annoying me many times a while ago using spamcop reporting form and everything went well.. Knowing that i'm sure that those messages are spam, but this spammer is a bit smart and played a simple trick and inserted a couple of lines at the end of each message making it appear as a legitimate mailing list subscription e-mail. the lines on both messages are the following: PLEASE NOTE! This is not spam You recived this messege because you are a member at yahoogroups You can send any messege to the group address %RECIPIENTEMAIL%! friend!To unsubscribe from this group, send an email to: nnn777_33_3-unsubscribe[at]yahoogroups.com mail delivery system!!! Auto-generated e-mail, please, do not reply!!! PLEASE NOTE! This is a legitimate email -You are recieveing this email from a friend on your MSN Hotmail Email Account mail delivery system!!! Auto-generated e-mail, please, do not reply!!! Note the %RECIPIENTEMAIL% ! I'm not sure if the yahoo group unsubscription e-mail address is valid or not, But i never subscribed to such thing, I'm sure, and even if it's opt-out it's still spam! and I don't even know the group name who got my e-mail address this spammer is pretending that i subscribed to in case if someone reported him. I thought of removing those lines before reporting but i didn't want to do this to leave the original spam message body *Intact*. This morning i got 2 responses from an admin of the hosting company "BlueHost" which the spam was originated from their servers , with the following response: Appears to be valid subscribed mailling list, offering a way to unsubscribe. Now, What is the next right step, and what should i do now when i'm sure they are both spam, should i contact the same admin back? and what should i say or do to prove that those are blatant spam and i never subscribed to such group which (ironicly) i don't even know the group name or url?, or should i take some other action to solve this?
