Is colocentral.com a Spam Haven?


Recommended Posts

I noticed a few weeks ago a new domain that spam was originating from as well as hosting the sites advertized.

Now they seem to really have the ball rolling there in terms of volume and wondering how such a site/isp/server (whatever the h_ll they are) can operate with seeming impunity? Also what constitutes a "spam haven"? When you look at their site does it look like this?

At least they haven't gotten to any of my other addresses....yet.

It seems to me that colocentral.com IS a spam haven as they seem to have no other uses or function judging by their site. Also, if you leave out the www in their address, it goes right to colocentral squirrel mail login!

I haven't been able to have much of a look at them. They are denounced in several places as being a spam haven. They seem to have a lot of resource. Hopefully someone can delve a little for you.

That's interesting because via my own searches I haven't found anything about them except the usual mentions about their data services or voip and one mention regarding spam here, and also here. The last site getting very specific about them which I hadn't seen before.

It's interesting to me that they can sleaze by with hardly any mention via the web or at least from my googling. I continue to do my part and forward their garbage to SC, Knujon, and also spam[at]uce.gov in one fwd. Take that colocentral! :lol:

  • 3 weeks later...

I checked the phone number that shows for the register of the site(s) the emails come from on whitepages.com and it comes back as being for colocentral. Doesn't that mean any complaints to colocentral are meaningless, or do they realy do anything other than send spam.

What we need to do is complain to the FTC and NY attorney general about this company. If enough of us complain this company will be investigated, hopefully.

Has anyone been able to dig deeper than this?

All my spam that I report is sent simultaniously to spamcop, knujon and spam[at]uce.gov so hopefully that covers all the bases, but yes, maybe adding FTC to my list would be good too, or maybe I have to do an individual mailing kinda thing. That would end up being too much work.

I would FWD my spam to yahoo (from both my free and ATT accounts) but those dingleberries only accept spam submitted as text so again, it becomes too much work to fwd each spam in 2 different formats just to accommodate them.

One of the reasons I posted here is so that the words spam, spamhaven and colocentral.com are forever linked and therefore searchable and the more people that know, the better.

I suppose it is pointless, them being off shore from US, associating powercomm.com, kisa.or.kr, hanaro.com, cnc-noc.net, fibertel.com.ar, reduno.com.mx, telecomitalia.it, telesp.net.br, et al, with the tons of spam that come from their networks but it's good to point it out anyway. :)

colocentral.com - spammer hosting (escalation)

Hosting spammers for revenue is really a no-no in this century, but some places still feel they must. Sad.

Unless Colocentral.com are the spammers, then it's just business as usual.

Word is they are now heavily blog spamming too.


I also found this range blocked in our firewall!
