See who hates spam!
Thank you for visiting the Deadbeats' Hall of Lame. We'd enjoy it if you would add to your anti-spam sentiments to this page
I agree with you on spammers like Dana Jones. I own a golf ball business myself, but I DO NOT SPAM. I have gotten many emails from Dana Jones and have replied not to send me anymore, but they still come. I really can not believe this person has the
"balls" to spam me, the competitor .

I really can't add much to your eloquent diatribe on spam and spammers without being as redundant as the 'tard spammers. Suffice it to say, I echo and support your views in totality. And I thank you for the substantial investment you have made with
your time and efforts in making the 'net a better place...
With best wishes for continued success in all your endeavours,

Please tell me what I can do to help eliminate spam. Every time I view my mail and there is spam there I want to reack through the computer and strangle someone. I have ruined lots of monitors this way. *twitch, twitch*
A number of people want legislation against spam, insisting that the US government do something.. Be careful what you wish for, the first internet censure bill to pass in to law will be the first of many!
Legislation can achieve nothing, the sites will simply move off shore and be routed through numerous other routes. Much better to address the situation the way you are here, explain to people how to find the guilty party and bill them!
Then, without the requirement for new laws, justice is served.
The internet is the last great fronteer, and can only be harmed by people that have a very poor understanding of technology (the government in any country qualifies here)
Lets keep our own house in order.. We can control the flow of information and censor information to suit our tastes without any help from the lawmakers!
Excellent resource, you've been bookmarked!
I stepped forward with my anti-spamming actions today, as i got my fifth spam from these jerks (see header). I downloaded the program from http://www.cix.co.uk/~net-services/spam and let it burn. I used "whois" to find out any domain + administrative cont
acts along the route. I'm now waiting for the consequenciens of the action, intend to report them later.
Here is the header of the spam:

YES! It's about TIME someone stands up to these ASSHOLES who clog up the Information Superhighway with roadkill! So far, I've been one of the lucky ones -- haven't posted much to Newsgroups, haven't gotten much e-mail. But I do READ newsgroups, and
I'm sick of downloading 1200 messages, 96% of which are complete and utter BULL. A clever newsreader can weed out a lot of this crap (Anawave Gravity!!) but some always manages to leak through. Not only that, but I have to download all the spam before I
can vaporize it. We have to take BACK our supposedly free Internet from the commercializing bastards who did this. (Oh, btw, check out Cantor and Siegel's new book on how to make money off the Internet... and burn it)

I hate spammers. One of those is www.webvirgins.com who is the most f. up adult site with augly looking girls. These guys constantly use the newsgroups to advertise their site. How could we stop them??
I HATE SPAMMERS!!! THIS PAGE KICKS ASS, BECAUSE I WANT TO KILL ALL SPAMMERS!!!
I'm FURIOUS !
You've seen the Golf Ball Spam (from Dana Jones, the "Ballman") - well today I got the 4-5th one in the past few days and wrote back to STOP. In about 3-4 hours I picked up my email and had 1490 emails! In another hour I had 1200 more, in another hour I h
ad 1500 more - I'm over 8000 now!
This JERK is using MY DOMAIN name to send us his obnoxious spam sales pitch. The mail looks as if it's coming from my domain with random "usernames" put in front of the domain name. This must be an automatic program doing this?
I'm getting all the bounces and refused email from AOL, CIS and other ISPs plus the (naturally) pissed off people getting the email who think it's from me!
I did a search on his name (which is how I found this interesting site) AND I found his phone number in Texas on the net-abuse group. SO I CALLED him tonight and left a message on his answering machine! (He said "this is Dana"....)
I told him to STOP. Don't know if it'll help or not.
Any ideas of what I could have done?
What a work of art.......keep it up ;^))
Bill <pleasedontspamme firstname.lastname@example.org>
You are doing good work; thank you. The smell of flaming spam is pleasing to the gods.
Wow, wonderful site! I hate spamming with a passion too. I hate spending my valuable time blocking it and forwarding it an all the other bs that goes with it. So I felt a special comfort in seeing your website and your passion for anti-spam. Keep u
p the great work!
I am currently on a list which seems to have no beginning. I can't find out where it came from.
Everyone on the list keeps sending mails to everyone else on the list saying "GET ME OFF THIS THING" - which of course nobody can do because they don't know where it initiated.
So, I went on the WEB to find out what could be done, and found your page - YOU BLESSED PERSON!!!
However, I still don't really know what to do. I tried putting the list into the INBOX ASSISTANT "from" and "CC" so that any of the people on the list will go directly to "hell" - I hope.
Any other advice?
i liked your views on spammers.. do you know where i can get a mail bomb email program?? i am sick and tired of getting this JUNK....
jerry mclaughlin <email@example.com>
This is really getting out of hand. The government will obviously not get involved (probably more due to the fact that they don't understand the problem than their usual laziness), and I'm not sure that we really want them to anyway. They will certainl
y slap some kind of self-serving anti-encryption laws onto whatever internet legislation gets passed...
Here is my appeal: To any self-respecting lawyers out there who feel like acting in the public's best interest (yeah, I'm talking to both of you), you should challenge these spammers in federal court using the following piece of the USC.
Legal Notice Regarding Junk E-mail/Spam
-- -- -- -- -- -- --
Unsolicited and/or commercial email is not permitted at this address; immediately remove the address from which this email was sent from any mailing lists you may be using.Your address has been recorded automatically and any future mailings to this acc
ount will result in your being billed for message transmission and storage services at a flat rate of $100.00 per message received.
Your receipt of this email communication constitutes legal notice and acceptance of this policy. This is the only notice you will receive.
Bills left unpaid after 30 days will be forwarded to your service provider and assessed a 50% late fee. After 60 days unpaid bills will be referred to applicable credit reporting and collection agencies.
A second unsolicited email to this account will also result in action against you under the terms of applicable U.S. law, including Title 47, Sec.227(b)(1)(C) of the U.S. Code, as follows:
US Code Title 47, Sec.227(b)(1)(C):
"It shall be unlawful for any person within the United States to
use any telephone facsimile machine, computer, or other device
to send an unsolicited advertisement to a telephone facsimile
A "telephone facsimile machine" is defined in Sec.227(a)(2)(B) as:
"equipment which has the capacity to transcribe text or images
(or both) from an electronic signal received over a regular
telephone line onto paper."
Under this definition, an e-mail account, modem, computer and printer together constitute a fax machine.
The rights of action are as follows. Under Sec.227(b)(3)(B):
"A person or entity may, if otherwise permitted by the laws or
rules of court of a State, bring in an appropriate court of
that State --
(A) an action based on a violation of this subsection or the
regulations prescribed under this subsection to enjoin
(B) an action to recover for actual monetary loss from such a
violation, or to receive $500 in damages for each such
violation, whichever is greater, or
(C) both such actions. If the court finds that the defendant
willfully or knowingly violated this subsection or the
regulations prescribed under this subsection, the court
may, in its discretion, increase the amount of the award
to an amount equal to not more than 3 times the amount
available under subparagraph (B) of this paragraph."
-- -- -- -- -- -- spam/junk e-mail follows -- -- -- -- -- --
That, by the way, is what I use to respond to each and every individual who spams me, along with each and every postmaster and abuse address for each "hop" I get when I do a traceroute back to the offending host. I find that it wakes people up more often
than the usual "****" you message. Feel free to copy this and use it if you'd like. BTW, if your response triggers an autoresponder to spam you again, start adding up the charges! I am currently investigating ways to report my debtors to credit agencies
such as Equifax and the like (Sanford Wallace already owes me $1000.00). It's not that hard, but it may require some initial capital. If I get it set up, be sure that I will make the information available to all. There's nothing I'd love more than to be a
ble to damage CyberPromo or Hotmail's credit ratings...
Hang in there, and good luck in the fight!

I want to add a new entry to your "nail these guys" -list.
This one sends junk continuously, despite my attempts to get him out of my inbox. I haven't seen this on your lists, so here are the higlights of his spams:
> My name is Tim Smith, the owner of Selective Marketing.
> Selective Marketing has spent two year developing a data base of
> e-mail addresses that produce results. We now
> have over 37 million e-mail addresses available on CD Rom or Zip drive.
> We are accepting orders by phone only. You must call (904) 779-1721 to place
> your order.
No use to add headers here, as they have turned out to be too well forged (for me, anyway). Anyone interested in those, please e-mail to my address, and I attach them in reply.

Hey right on man!!!!!I got more of the junk stuff~~ also can't even get a reply
(mail comes back to the recipient as no address)
GOOD LUCK and USE "AGENT" and be free !!!!

Thank Fate for people like you!
Keep up the good work!!!!!!!!
I really like your page, and empathize entirely with your sentiment. However, I really would like to see how I can find out who the spammer is. Most of the time, spammers these days use pretty clever ways of faking their identity. Is it possible to
create a web page with a full header (faked of course) and let the user (me) know how to read it? I know the usual stuff, I'm talking about advanced faking that's becoming more and more common.
Also, I've got another question - what do you do when you complain to your own ISP and they say, "oh, SPAM is just like junk mail, just delete it! :)" It makes me want to strangle someone when I can't do anything about it.
Please reply via e-mail. Thanks.

Just wanted to let you know I'm on your side! I get hundreds of Spam on Genie, which I cannot filter :/ Unfortunately, a lot of the subjects are 'I need help' or 'help me' which means I have to at least skim them (I'm staff and have a vendor account)
. Needless to say 99.9999% of these are 'help me (the spammer) make money" :/
The true cruelty of spamming, in addition to the obvious annoyance factor, bandwidth wasting and so on, is the human factor. With unemployment the way it is, new welfare laws, downsizing and so on, people are desparate for a way to make money. This soun
ds better to them than $5.15/hour for a 10 hour week at McDonald's (or add any other fast-food name there) or a waitress job. The 'no experience necessary' really sounds attractive as well. I almost many years ago, bit on a few of the scams (not from th
e internet, but from mag advertisements), since I was a welfare recipient and homebound with a chronically ill daughter. These are the people these ads are aimed at...the elderly, the desperate. Yeah, the greedy, too, but I don't think the greedy are as
likely to ANSWER an ad as to initiate one. Most of the ones answering these ads are ones who for one reason or another cannot leave the home (handicapped, or tied down by a family member), cannot find work that pays enough to pay auto expenses (commutin
g) and daycare expenses. These are the least likely to be able to recover, as well, from being a victim, and sadly, are the least likely to complain - either from lack of knowledge HOW to complain, or fear or resources. Spammers are nothing but vultures
, with their main goal in mind to screw as much of the population as possible, picking on the most vunlerable facet of society to accomplish they're goal.
Ken Lucke (I can't remember the URL now - although I think it's at pacific.com or pacific.net) is a great worker in the anti-spam war. Keep up the good work yourself!

Brilliant concept for anti-spamming. I found it while trying to track some shit
that my wife has been getting from those scum buckets at
LogonLasVegas (LLV.COM). They are sending her email promoting
their site of TEEN PORNO, yes you read it right! Welcome to the US of A
(yes, that's A as in assholes). We should start forwarding some, no, ALL of this
crap to our attorney general's email addresses. Like they really care.
They probably don't even read their own email, those pompous lowlifes.
That's it, I'm too stewed to expound further and don't want too get
so pissed off that I through these systems through the window.

Seems marketcom likes my hotmail account...
I got a pair of emails from them linking to their site (which was down btw... maybe someone did the world a service and trashed their site? *grin*)
Anyway, the anti-spamming bill you were talking about, will it allow me to bill them from Sweden or is it just from within the US?
Is there any way to email bomb these suckers???

Mustachi's at it again. Got a Floodgate spam yesterday with a NEW phone #:
He's got a new internet provider, methinks, but I can't read headers as well as other antispammers.

The Internet (supposedly the last fontier) is becoming nothing but a wasteland of spam, and banner advertising. Advertising is jammed down our throats at nearly every web page you visit. It is relentless. It makes me sick. Most of it is useless anyway
unless you are in the general region of where the advertising originates. For example, I don't need the services of a US based lawyer, or US based specific services if I don't live there. 99.99% of it seems to originate from the US. It seems that every id
iot these days considers themselves to be advertising gurus.
Think of the bandwidth that could be saved if advertising was outlawed. I know that people feel it is thier "right" to advertise, but everything has it's place. The upside is that everyone could enjoy faster access speeds because useless mail spam and web
page advertising wouldn't be wasting precious bandwidth. I fear that one day the Internet will become useless, because you'll have to fight your way through all the advertising to get that information your actually looking for.
Write to your political leaders. Most spam originates from the US, and there's nothing much we can do about it here in Australia.
A comment was previously made that it would probably only move them off-shore. Well, if they start doing it here, I would gladly take it to task. That's why it's important for your guys in America to do something about it. They are on your local turf. You
have the opportunity.
The trouble with spamming is that as soon as you figure out a filter for your mail server to reject unwanted domains etc, new methods are thought of by these spamming idiots. This has happened to us many times and it's frustrating.
We have a list of 100's of domains that will be rejected by our server.
However, here is one of the newest spamming methods:
The trouble here is that in the message header, there's a line:
Because the mail server see's this as a legitimate email address, the server accepts it, even though public.com and firstname.lastname@example.org is in our rejection list. At least for now, there is nothing we can do about this.
What I do now, is archive these spam messages so that when the time arises, I have proof of unsolicited mailing, and when the time comes to sue, I have all the ammo I need.
People must unite against spam and unwanted advertising!

I receive an average of 8 spams a day at my work email address (listed).
I use the "Get That Spammer" site to attempt to track down the scamming
scum and report them to wherever I can identify is the source server.
Not always easy.
I'm surprised "harris-marketing.com" and "ieammc.com" haven't made your
"hall of shame" yet!

I am a sysadmin for brigadoon.com and I hate spammers to pieces! If you got
the spam from firstname.lastname@example.org, (over 1,199,000 sent before I stopped
him), he has been terminated with extreme predjudice. He will also recieve a
hefty bill for storing 600 megabytes of bounced messages. Once we put up the
policy statement of charging per recipient for bulk email, spammers will also
pay per recipient in addition to having their accounts canceled. We think one
dollar per recipient, (regardless of whether it was a valid address, or
whether the recipient actually got it), will be a good deterent.

You know what I'd like to do with all them damn spammers? Well, first of all I would get me some 2,000 lbs. of that loveable mystery meat Spam, then I would make a giant Spam enema and wash out all thier rectums. Then, I would make a big Spam basebal
l bat and beat the ever livin' crap out of them. THEN, I would make them all deep throat the Spam baseball bat. AND STILL, I would write to some alien guys and ask them to abduct the Spammers and anal probe them. LASTLY, I would gather them and the cha
in letter people into one room and I would give all the Spam haters a can 'o' Spam, and we all could SPAM them to death. Well, thanks for letting me get that off my chest.

They did once use MY MAIL SERVER as a relay, in which I got a block on them.

Spam is definitely out of hand. I am not convinced that government interaction is the best solution, except to allow individuals and companies to bill the spammers and take them to court for violating the law. Also, I think fake headers should be out
lawed, and culprits should be fined and sent to jail. Let these creeps spend some time in a cell with a guy named Bubba. That may wake them up.
Other Anti-spamming actions we can take:
1) If they provide and 800#, everyone should make 20 calls to it every day for one month. The cost will add up, and might put them out of business.
2) If you can find their home phone number, put it on a central web site warning people that these people have some sort of sexual dysfunction, probably some kind of STD, and most likely AIDS.
3) Find where the community where they live, and warn their neighbors about these people's unsavory activities.
4) If anyone has a picture of these people, publish it on a national web site as a warning to all parents and children.
5) Any spammer who promotes porno should be equated as a childabuser and woman abuser, and their name should be linked to a national web site, sent to local police departments, and maybe even published in local newspapers in their community.
Whatever you do, make their lives as more uncomfortable for them as they have made for you!
Great job on this site! Keep up the good work.

I was just at your "spamhaters" page, following the link from the bizarre spam claiming to be from you. You know, the one urging us to "SEND YOUR CREDIT CARD INFO NOW!!!". I was on a spammer hunt. Good luck getting that one; I know what it's like be
ing targeted. On my first spammer kill I made the mistake of cc'ing the complaint I sent to the ISP to the spammer himself -- within a week my junk email had tripled. These people are scum! They must be tracked down and exterminated like vermin! Happy

Albeit, your methods seem harsh, I think it's about time! These "people" have been filling our boxes up with their unwanted junk for too long! When I get spam I try to find out where it comes from and e-mail my ISP and the spammer's ISP trying to get
them dropped. I'm sorry I deleted them after I took this action. One in particular was an entire corporate advertising site that did nothing but support spam. Anyway, keep up the good work and when I get more spam in the future, I'll drop by to add th
at name to your list.

I've been tired of those dozains of spam mails I receive during a single day.
I noticed that a lot of spam mails I receive got "Friend@public.com"
in the To: field of the headers. I tried an Altavista search on those
words and I found 13 docs. One of this was http://www.webwiz.com/freeweb/a-adpage/bizopp/ads.htm
(another page was one of yours !)
I searched for the text "Friend@public.com" in this page but it wasn't
displayed. I searched then in the HTML source of the page, and there
were a lot of tags that where directed to email adresses
that seemed weird to me, including Friend@public.com... I telneted www.webwiz.com on TCP port 25 just to see if I could there send a mail to
Friend@public.com but the SMTP server is REALLY weird... No banner, no standard
syntax... I couldn't send any mail, it seem that they rewrotte the way their
SMTP is dealing mails...
Everything seemed to be set so that their softs can access their SMTP server
their own and unique way and send thousands of bulk emails... So I wrote to
email@example.com to be removed off their lists. But I don't expect much of
it... Nevertheless, who knows ?
I set up my Eudora Light 3.05 to filter all the mails with Friend@public.com
in any of the headers and transfer them directly to trash !
And I'll continue my AntiSpam fight !!!
We'll beat them

I was thinking of writing a program that would automatically reply to spammers,
and ALSO look up their domain owners (via Internic), reply to them,
and ALSO look up their virtual domain hosts and reply to the owvers, postmaster, support, and abuse mailboxes.
If a few thousand people used the program just THINK how fast the ISP's would
get spammers off their servers, and maybe even limit # of e-mails per session!
PROBLEM: How to trace forged headers!!!!
DO you have some links to methods of tracing forged e-mail headers, or is it a hopeless mess?

I read your note on apnic. I have noticed that apnic (Australia) and Ripe (Europe) are becoming sources of spam. Could it be that Sanford has moved offshore? Most of his spam I get is MLM and junk that does not require a email response, rather faxin
g or mailing my credit card number.
I have become an advocate of blocking sites that tolerate spammers. If apnic and ripe tolerate this, then they will be blocked. This puts pressure on the spam tolerant isp's. If they are blocked, they are useless and then their own customers who send
valid email will threaten to leave the spam tolerant provider. Long story short, make spammers the Iraq of the internet.

I was looking for a spammers email, and your site came up on altavista. Excellent, bit over the top, but I guess you can't get too angry at spam, It drives me nuts!

Thanks for your anti-spam work. Remember the words of Winston Churchill:
Never give in; never give in; never, never, never, never--in
nothing great or small, large or petty--never give in except
to convictions of honor and good sense. Never yield to
force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of
the enemy. Sir Winston Churchill, speech to students at
Harrow, his old preparatory school.
When I send complaints to spammers and their associates, I include this statement: "Because I know you are as interested as I am in preventing Internet e-mail abuse and join me in preventing it, I will be sending you copies of my future complaints to oth
ers. That way you will be able to add your voice to the chorus opposed to spam as each incident occurs. In other words, if you do not let me know otherwise, I will put you on my permanent notification list. Please note: I have filtered your regular bu
lk mail return address in full and element by element. To make your notification to me effective you must use a mail return address totally unlike the one you originally used to contact me."
If the spammer does not take the time to notify me otherwise, then he has given me legal implied consent for me to continue sending him mail every time I receive a new spam from any source. To stop me from sending him future mailings, he is force do stop
what he is doing and take time to specifically e-mail me his refusal.

Here's another way to hit back at spammers:
After giving appropriate notices of the "debt" to the spammer, you can file
a form UCC-1 with the Secretary of State of the state that he is in. All
of the credit reporting services and banks watch those notices. When he
applies for credit he will have to explain to the creditor the contract
with you and why the debt has never been paid.
Typical cost for filing UCC-1 is $5.
Also, take a look at forms UCC-4 (the equivalent of a notice of default and judgment) and UCC-3 (the equivalent of a writ of execution. It's been a long time since I've looked at the UCC-3 and -4, so if I screwed up, sorry guys. Hopefully memory serves
The idea of the forms is that you solidify your claim administratively and create a record of implied consent due to his failure to timely object. When you go to court you don't sue on proving the obligation. Instead, you sue on the obligation that he f
ailed to timely contest, and you show that the he has already made his admissions administratively before you arrived at the court. This is similar to the technique used by the IRS against people they don't like.

I really like your Anti-Spam page. A lot of good reading on it.
I hate getting spammed. Its getting worse and worse. I get about
3-5 spams per day. I am glad you try to track these jerks down and
make their info available. I certainly have seen a lot of familiar
spammers names on your www page. I will call the ones who have a
tollfree number and complain(cuss the jerks out!) Hey maybe posting
their tollfree number to some xxx newsgroups to tie their phone lines
up might help.
Good luck and keep up the anti-spamming!!

Lovely web site! i found it looking for 888-507-7566, the phone number
of a golf ball idiot. I could not locate the spam that you got
in december. It would be useful if you would add a search engine
or at least drop the frames - it makes getting around your site harder.

I love it!! you know thw only real problem here is that although the prospect of a physical confrontation is always something to look forward to, knowing spineless spammers as we do,those obsequious pussyfarts couldnt get enough spine up to slither awa
y, much less be a real physical threat. Like pouring salt on a slug, its fun but there is no resistance,no element of danger. If we could bring some of these spammmer-slugs to a public forum, i think i could scare up a good woody and publicly buttfuck the
m for their crimes against the internet. FUCK SPAMMERS and their offspring. Come get me you assholes, i[ll even publish my address.............jb999

So, you really, really hate spam, eh?
Apparently so! Good for you! Excellent page, keep up the good work, and all that.
You just got bookmarked in my browser, right between the Sam Spade site and the Lumber Cartel (tinlc) home page.
P.S. I couldn't understand about half of the voicemail threat. I'd love to see a transcript of it.

I have started to receive spams, and am amazed at their rudeness.
They forged email return receipts, refuse to answer my questions,
and even hang up on me over the phone. I want to see the following
people rot in jail for this:
Ori Canatex International Inc, PO Box 63503, Agincourt, Ontario, Canada, M1V 1V0
TCPS, INC., 4718 18th Ave. Suite 135, Brooklyn, NY 11204
718-287-3800- I encourage you to call and harass them, because they
refuse to even speak to me.

If you run into the idiot that made the threat, give hime my URL. I use my real name, I'm in the book and would enjoy such an entertaining message on my machine as well. :)
His phone number may well be on my page already.
Keep up the good work.
