Scumbags

This page is to list all confirmed email addresses that are guilty of sending me SPAM.  The sole purpose of this list is to make these addresses available to the spiders that SPAMmers use to harvest email addresses for SPAM.

In other words, every email address on this list is guilty of sending SPAM, and will find itself on every SPAM list out there.  Poetice justice, I think.

Obviously, if the owner of an address on this list can explain why they sent me the SPAM, or prove that they didn’t, I will remove them from the list.


  • Luis@eur-consulting.com – domain name newly registered, this guy sent me an email from my own email address. Sadly, though, he wants me to email him back…
  • info@JuliaNewYork76.com – the registered owner of the eur-consulting.com domain.

  • lisa@thinkpinkcartridges.co.uk – I’ve never bought from this company, never even heard of them before, yet they are emailing me because they ‘value my loyalty.’ They have obviously harvested my address from somewhere, and are blind-emailing me. This is – for me – the essence of spam: they can’t even claim that I’ve ‘subscribed’ and they don’t offer an unsubscribe link. (Not that I’d use it.)
    Congratulations, I hope you enjoy your spam.

  • A nice chap called Kenneth (at sales@justsearchmedia.com) has made it onto the list today.  He very kindly addressed me as ‘dear customer’ even though I never have been and never will be a customer  of theirs.  He offered to perform SEO services for my website.  What was on offer? Better placing on Google, a search engine I tell people to avoid; ‘free’  pages on YouTube, facebook and twitter, which are free anyway and I tell people to avoid; and a monthly report on how things are going – all for the reasonable fee of £220.  Plus VAT.  Every month.  Not only is this SPAM, it’s stupid and full of grammatical errors and very poor spelling.

  • Nick, email address seomarketingluck@sify.com, is also offering to improve my sites ratings. SEO & Link building service, they call it – and then boast of how they ‘follow only ethical practices.’ Sorry, but sending marketing emails to total strangers is SPAM – and SPAM is not ethical, in my book. Welcome to the SPAM list, dumbo.

  • I’ve been offered a job by johnh0953@live.com or mcgahai@anchorblock.com. It’s hard to be sure, as the email came from one address but wants me to reply to the other. So I’m putting both on the list.

  • I’ve won some money!  I’ve won £700,000 in a Microsoft lottery!  Thank you so much to garricknewman@gmail.com for telling me about this.  Funny, though… how could I win a lottery I never entered?

  • A guy called Peter Brown – pbrown@contracts4commerce.com – seems to think that he can sell ‘Terms and Conditions’ to me, that are ‘for use specifically by businesses in your market sector.’  Funny that, I don’t have a market sector, which means he knows nothing about me or my business – so this is SPAM.

  • Tony Brindley (tony@bwfinance.co.uk) is offering to buy all my outstanding invoices.  Very kind of him.  He also puts a ‘click here to unsubscribe’ link at the bottom of his email.  Why?  I didn’t do anything to subscribe, so I aint doing nothing to unsubscribe.  Instead, I’ve subscribed you to my SPAM list.  Just click here to unsubscribe…

  • I keep getting emails from an online gambling club.  I never have – and never will – had any interest in gambling online, and I have certainly not shown any interest in their product.  They have no grounds whatsoever for thinking I may be interested, and the fact that my email is just one out of dozens they send the email to – the same email I have received at least a dozen times in a couple of days – means that what they are sending is SPAM.  The address they send it from is not monitored, though – because they don’t want SPAM back.  Send it to support@premierplayersclub.com instead.

  • sales@cctvalarmshop.co.uk have sent me an email promoting their security systems.  Why, I’m not quite sure – but that’s beside the point.  They include a ‘click here to unsubscribe’ link, but… how did I subscribe?  I never visited their website, never gave them my email address, never expressed an interest in their product in any way, shape or form – so they have no legitimate reason (even by the extremely lax rules they are supposed to follow) to put me on their mailing list.  Their email is now in my spam folder, and their address is here for all the spambots to find.

  • An interesting one here.  Sent from tosendinfo@tosendinfo.com, it’s an advert for a firm that specialises in swimming pools.  They make them, repair them, maintain them…  in Spain.  Now, I’ve never been to Spain, and I have never had a swimming pool, yet – in their email – they tell me that they are complying with a law regarding spam, and that I’m only getting the email because I asked for it!  Sorry, but I never have and never will ask to be put on a mailing list, and when others offer to put me on one, I say no.  The company’s email address is spaciotermal@spaciotermal.com,  just so the spambots can get them, too.  If you want to be removed from my list, simply tell me when, where and how I asked to be included in your mailing list.

  • info@photomagix.in offers ‘image editing’ services. Why they think I might be interested is never mentioned in their email, nor is there an ‘unsubcribe’ link.  It’s just an advert.  Pity they sent it to me, really.

  • A company called ‘Barclay Weston Ltd’ has emailed me about  commercial insurance.  I don’t know why – I have none, want none, and have never enquired about any.  They have no grounds at all for claiming that I have ‘shown an interest’ which means this email doesn’t even fit into the very slack confines set up by the direct marketing association.  Their email address is admin@ukbuildnet.co.uk and I would love them to ask me to unsubscribe them from my spam list.

  • Spent a while considering this next one.  On the face of it, it’s a ‘genuine’ email offering their services…  But, and this is why I’ve included it here, they’re offering their services for a website I created nearly ten years ago, and have had nothing to do with since!
    The website includes contact details, and there are many many ways for people to get in touch with the right person – but my email address is included in the pages coding.  To me, that very clearly says that the email was sent by a program, and not by a real person in person, as it were.
    Add to that the fact that this is totally an unsolicited fishing (not phishing) email, trying to drum up business, without even a pretense of knowing anything about my ‘business’, and I decided that they should go on my SPAM list.
    The email came from lucy.windsor@sw.emailingwizard.co.uk but the email address they give is lucy.windsor@sitewizard.co.uk.
    As always, I’m willing to listen to any good argument as to why this address should not be included here.

  • A chap called Rod Major runs a thing called ‘Network Central’ – which claims to be all about putting businesses in touch with each other.  That’s all well and good, but if that really is true, why is he emailing me about it?  I’m not a business, and I have never heard of him before.  Yes, he put an unsubscribe link, so, as always, if he can explain to my satisfaction why he subscribed me, I’ll remove rod@networkcentral.me from this page.

  • Tony Brindley, admin@barclayweston.net, has very kindly offered to ‘review’ my insurance policies for me.  Now, this is a ‘genuine’ business offer, as far as I can tell, and it is fairly innocuous as it stands.  It is included here for one reason, and one reason only: because they put an ‘unsubscribe’ link in the email.

  • sales@rhinoco.co.uk have emailed me with their latest offers.  Every offer is for some form of CCTV.  I’ve never had CCTV, never bought any, and never ever told this company my email address.  Yet they think I’m interested in getting SPAM about it.  Idiots.

  • rod@networkcentral.me sent me an email telling me that ‘the next network central event’ was happening soon.  I have no idea what he’s talking about, and less interest.  There is a ‘click here to unsubscribe’ link, just as there is a ‘click here to be removed from this page link.  Email me, tell me why you were right to put me on your mailing list and I was wrong to put you on mine, and I’ll remove you.
    Simples.

  • Got an email offering to promote my business to over 2 million business email addresses…  Now, if MY address is on that list, what good are the others?  I’m not a business, and I hate spam like this – but I’m on their list.  That makes their list worse than useless, because they will be sending spam to people like me who make it our business to eliminate spam…. Idiots.  Email admin@promotemefree.com, please, frequently.
    (That’s not the address they sent it from, but that address will identify me, and thereby confirm that their email was recieved and read.  I won’t give them that.)

  • Somebody calling themselves Deepak (preciousbudydeepak5@gmail.com) has sent me a very nice email offering to redesign my website. Apparantly, he has ‘analyzed’ it, and believes that he can benefit me by ‘better sales’…  Very hard to call him a liar on this, as just one sale would be an improvement on a site that has nothing to sell.
    As my site is simply a blog, which sells nothing beyond my opinion, I have a very strong suspicion that this is nothing more than a shotgun email – in which case he is lying when he says he has visited and analysed my website.  Or he’s too stupid to realise it’s impossible to improve sales when nothing is sold.  Either way, this is SPAM.

  • knowledge@caesarwinner.com sent me an email that started ‘dear member’, and told me that I had ‘won’ money and their gambling site.  All I had to do to collect it was register, and deposit money…
    Hang on – h0w can I be a member if I need to register?  And how can me giving them money equate to a win for me?
    Still, they did include an ‘unsubscribe’ link, so in the interest of fairness I have done exactly the same as they did: put their address on a SPAM list, and offered to take it off again if they tell me why I should.

  • I got an email from beverley.butler@clickformick.com telling me I had a £2222 ‘welcome’ waiting for me if I registered on their roulette site.  Now, this one is particularly interesting: when I tried to look them up, I found that the site was registered in such a way that the owner was hidden.
    The only reasons for that are fraud, or a desire for privacy.  And what legitimate business wants to keep it’s identity private?
    I won’t be using their unsubscribe link, and I doubt that they will use mine, either.

  • I’ve been invited to take part in an international photo competition by istoselida@gmail.com (also uses info@cps-iodpc.com.cy ) which is very nice of them.  There’s just one problem, they lifted the email address without my permission and added it to a mailing list.
    The competition looks like a scam to me, anyway.  Any ‘competition’ that invites total strangers to pay an entry fee has to be a scam.
    There are legitimate competitions that send out regular invitations (I get them every year from at least one) – but they only send them to people that have entered in the past, or who have asked to get them.

  • Today I got two emails, from different sources, with different email addresses to reply to.  How strange then, that both emails were identical in every other way!
    They are offering me a job!  A well-paid job, at that.  It’s just a pity that they have a poor grasp on english spelling and grammer, or I might have been taken in. (Not really, folks.)
    Should any of you be interested in this job, or want to add yourself to their mailing list, the email addresses to use are: paul.jackobs.sr@gmx.com & timothy.j.clark@gmx.com.
    As always, should the owners of these addresses wish to have them removed from this page, they can email me with their reasons.

  • Got an email from artists@picsastock.com today.  Something about a free app I think. (I dunno, really, because I never looked.)
    At the bottom of the email, it told me I had received the email because I ‘had subscribed to the PicsaStock newsletter.’  I must have done it in my sleep, then, because I’ve never heard of it, I have no interest in it, and I never subscribe to newsletters.
    Welcome to the wonderful world of Spambots.

  • sales@tinydeal.com is the latest addition to the list.  It’s possible that they may be one of the businesses I’ve bought things from on ebay, though I cannot find that business name on any of the deals – but that is actually beside the point.
    Yes, there is an ‘unsubscribe’ link.  But they make a point of telling you that the email address they sent the email from is unmonitored – which means they expect it to get a lot of ‘drop dead’ replies.
    What really makes this one annoying is the fact that they put my full name in the subject line: obviously, they want me to think that it’s not SPAM because they know my name – I think it IS SPAM because I didn’t ask for it.  I didn’t ask, and ‘ask’ is another word for ‘solicit’, and SPAM is ‘unsolicited emails’…
    As always, if anybody wants me to remove this email address from the page, all they have to do is convince me that what I’m doing is different to what they are doing.

  • A lovely lady called Charlotte (charlotte@webwindows.co.uk) has sent me two emails, a day apart. The first one offers me a banner ad on the daily mail website, the second one wonders if I’ve read the first.
    I have to say, this is a genuine business, that operates fully within the law and industry guidelines – so why are they on this page? Simple, I’m operating under the exact same guidelines!
    They have shown an interest in my product, by visiting my site and emailing me to tell me so, which is far more than they can say about my interest in their site or business.  A visit to a page on their site tells me that my email address got on their database because one of their employees visited my site and thought I might be interested in their product.  That makes no sense to me at all, because anybody who visited this site would know that I am NOT interested, in any way, shape or form, with any advertising or marketing of any sort.
    In keeping with the rules, this address will be removed on request..

  • An email from marketing@canvasbay.co.uk offers me 20% off my next purchase, which is nice of them.  They also tell me that I got the email because I ‘opted in’ when I purchased from them.
    Trouble is, I can’t remember buying from them!  I have no idea what they sell, and no interest in finding out.  I did NOT ‘opt in’ in any way, shape, or form – I never have, and I never will.  Unless, of course, they mean that failing to shout at them very loudly that you OPT OUT is opting in…
    I refuse to make a special effort to find out where the ‘no I DO NOT want your spam’ box is – I refuse to deal with any business that operates on the ‘we can do it till you tell us no’ basis.

  • Another volunteer for this list is a business going by the name of ’boutique’.  I got an email from them, saying that I was on their mailing list ‘because I signed up or purchased from boutique.’
    Most strange, because I’ve never heard of them, and the list of items they have for sale didn’t include anything I have bought recently, or was ever likely to buy.
    I’ve added the addresses of promo@jubes.qxzmak.com and promo@cubs.qxzmak.com to the list for exactly the same reasons as they put me on their list: because they’ve shown an interest by emailing me.

  • A firm of London Painters & Decorators has just sent me an email welcoming me to their SPAM list. Apparently, I visited their site and signed up. Quite why I would be interested in Painters who would charge more in travel time than I could afford for the whole job is beyond me. I mean, what IS the point of sending SPAM around the world when you only work in ONE city?
  • hello@the-builder.co.uk is their email address, and I’ve emailed them to say thanks for adding me to your spam list, and welcome to mine…

  • Helen@smartpaychecks.net has emailed me to offer her services – doing the payroll for a business I have nothing to do with.  My email address was lifted from a website I designed around fifteen years ago, a website I have not been involved with for around ten years, for a business that has just one worker and that’s the owner!
    No, this is SPAM of the worst type, and they deserve their place on this page.

  • I’ve been offered a great deal on advertising space in the Independent on Sunday by heather.moore@webwindows.co.uk, which is very kind of her.  Small print at the bottom claims that the email is ‘confidential and may be legally privileged’… How can SPAM be confidential?  SPAM is sent out to anybody whose email address they can get.
    There is an unsubscribe link, and you know my views on those, but… If Heather wishes to to unsubscribe from this page, I’ll be happy to consider it.

  • Isabella Jones (Isabella@gofleetgps.biz) has offered the services of her company to track my employees on the road.  What employees is she talking about?
    They cannot claim that I have shown an interest in their product, because I’ve never heard of it before, and now that I have heard of it, I’m not interested – so they fail on that direct marketing excuse.
    Oh, and their email address may not work, either, because their website gives info@gofleetgps.info as their contact address.  How silly of them to get it wrong, and how nice of me to give you the correct address.

  • I’ve been offered image editing services by songedit@tom.com (although he sent the email from tolarxiz@yandex.com to try and avoid SPAM).  No unsubscribe link offered, because he no doubt beleives he doesn’t need one.  After all, he did buy a list of email addresses supposed to be of relevance to his business.
    They’re not, though, because my address was lifted off another website by a robot, and I have no interest in paying somebody to edit images for me.  (Truth be told, the owner of the website wouldn’t be interested, either.)
    As always, I will be happy to remove this entry on receipt of an explanation as to why I was put on their mailing list.

  • I’ve blogged about this one here.  An email from Grace@GetFuelCards.com is offering to quote me for providing a service to a company that isn’t a company, and that I have no connection with.
    Usual rules apply – I’ll remove the entry on request.

  • Another blog post about Bark.com this time.  They have sent it from a ‘no- reply’ address, because they don’t want a lot of abusive replies – but they DO want potential clients to email them on team@bark.com so use that one. 🙂

 

More will be added as they promote theirselves.

Just a reminder: ‘unsubscribe’ links in emails are known methods of compiling lists of valid email addresses – which are then sold to spammers…
If you unsubscribe, you are telling them that the email address in question is genuine, and emails sent to it are read by a real person.
Spammers would rather send emails to valid addresses, because it means a higher chance of success: send a million emails to addresses you’ve made up, and you’ll be lucky if one of them gets read – as ‘success’ for a spammer is measured in terms of one in every 10,000 emails that gets read achieves the desired result, then they’d have to send 10,000,000,000 emails to get one success.  If they send a million emails to ‘valid’ addresses, then they will get 100 results – or, to put it another way, they increase their success rate vastly.

Don’t tell them the address is valid!

If you recieve a marketing email you did not knowingly subscribe to (and that means you are certain, beyond any doubt, that you asked them to include you) then you have been ‘opted in’ by default.
What I would ask you to do, as an absolute minimum, is to mark the email as SPAM, add the sender to your block list, and never, ever, buy from them again.
If you’re feeling particularly annoyed, you could email them, and tell them exactly what you have done, and why – you get some interesting replies, I can tell you!  The problem with this approach is that by emailing them, you are confirming the email address is valid…
