William Stanley is apparently back

If he ever went away, that is.

I’ve seen spam to several of the domains I have registered.
All to the address info@domain.tld.
I wonder if Google is happy about the from address “no-reply at gmail” being used.

Something along this in common:

From: “You Need Reviews” <No-reply[atdomain]gmail.com
Subject: Got Bad Reviews? Need good Reviews?
To: “info”<info@domain.tld>

He also falsifies headers by trying to spoof yahoo.com as the sender.

Email addresses used:
myprogramskills@gmail.com
postingshowcase@gmail.com

Short info from the domain registration:

Domain Name: REVIEWSHOWCASE.COM
Registrar: MONIKER

Registrant [1426977]:
        William Laurence reliablechat@gmail.com
        2120 hwy 361
        port aransas
        TX
        78373
        US

Late april reviewshowcase.com was hosted at 207.189.109.125, ViaWest.
Now it lives at 103.11.189.31, something called VERTICAL ENTERPRISE LLP in Singapore.

As usual there is quite a lot of domains involved, a few of them (some are most likely already dead):

  • bestreviewservice.com
  • blametaker.com
  • cdrplacementgroup.com
  • crushyourcompetition.com
  • complaintcontrol.com
  • deluxereputation.com
  • findfaxnumbers.com
  • freespeechhost.com
  • postgoodreviews.com
  • postingpositivereviews.com
  • postingshowcase.com
  • programskills.com
  • referenceguy.com
  • reputationmoniker.com
  • reputationpromo.com
  • reputationtracker.info
  • supportgator.com
  • yourbestreputation.com‎
  • youneedreviews.com

And one not fitting the pattern above, but rather more along the russian bride scamming business:
safebride.com‎ – seems to be gone.

Another one is acewigsblog.com, which also seems to be gone.
But why not get into the business of wigs, he has tried a lot before, like diapers.

I wonder how he managed to get out of Spamhaus’ ROKSO list.
Or maybe more correct; Why he isn’t back on ROKSO.

The iPad app Email Marketing Pro – an emailharvester

Email Marketing is a powerful and easy tool for building email list targeted to a specific market area. It is as simple to use as a search engine, You only need to specify the keywords and Email Marketing will bring thousand of emails addresses parsed from the search results.

How to get the emails of potential customers in three simple steps:

1) Select the search criteria. This is the most important decision to get an accurate email list. We recommend you to try the keywords in a web search engine and refine the keywords until you get the more adequate pages for your market target. You can also especify the number of domains to search. Based in our experience you will get from 5 to 10 emails for each domain.
2) Start the search. Email Marketing uses an advanced multy threading system to get high throughput. You will be permanently informed about the number of domains and pages already explored, emails extracted and you can get an idea of the remaining time taking a look at the top progress bar. You can stop the search at any time without losing the information collected so far: You always have an access to results of the search.
3) Export the email list to your system. You can export emails in CSV format, which is adequate for import in databases and Outlook Contacts, or select the VCF format which is the standard virtual card format for contact interchange and therefore for GMail, Apple Agenda and many other email systems.

Grab the emails of your potential customers in less than a hour.

The above is taken from http://www.3y3.net/email_marketing/index.php .
The app is called Email Marketing Pro in Apples app store.

Sending email to addresses harvested like this is pure spam.
Where is the opt-in?

Update
I fired off an email to the maker of the program and got the following answer from a Javier Nieto at 3y3.net:

Hi,
The list created will always contains the email and the page where the
email appears. So you only harvest public emails. It is perfectly
legal to send an email to a public email and if anyone ask you where
do you get his email, you will always reply with the URL where the
email appears. You only need to add an ‘unsubscribe’ link to all your
mailings,
Best regards

So his definition is something along the lines of “legal spam”.
One simple word is enough: Spam.

Note to self: Pirro

Probably behind the massive SEO-spam.
Has been going on for quite a while now, spamming info@ addresses.
I wonder why his ROKSO-listing disappeared.

Note to self: Carner/Greenwood

The Viral Spiral idiot, Carner, is apparently an affiliate of the ROKSO listed spammer Greenwood.

Sent via server.roompalace.com, 213.175.210.18.
The spam also contained a webbug from roompalace.com.

It was of course spam, but something else plagued me a little bit about the content itself.
I have too many sites to remember, so I had to check which site of mine that was so informative that this spammer had “came across”.
And her it is, a nice screenshot:

No site, but still informative  for the visitors or cheapestroomslondon.co.uk?

Ah, that one. Only email set up, but no web.
Happy to see that Mr. Mark Jain still finds it informative for his visitors.
But he has of course not seen “the site” at all, he just spams.

So would you trust a spammer? Give him your emailaddress?
Your creditcard number? And so on.

Of course you would not.

But here he has got his “reciprocal” link, whatever it is, I have no idea.
I hope it isn’t useful to him.

financial relief from your home loan lender. Complete the form
to get a free financial evaluation to determine if you qualify
for payment relief.&nbsp;  I look forward to working with you

With a link to bratchaeal. com.

All typical fingerprints of James Carner, formerly known as the “Viral Spiral” idiot. Well, on this blog, that is.
Unless it is a copycat. Or a catfight between Carner and Pirro. Or maybe they are still in bed. Or he could be cooperating with Gregory Williams.
I don’t have a clue. Someone is spamming, whoever it is.

This guy ( scamspam.org ) is better than me to document his spam:
