Thread: Spammer

  1. #1

    Spammer

    I had a new registration today. A spammer.

    I was able to catch him easily because of a suspicious nature that I developed a few weeks ago.

    So I received the registration - an odd one. http://richard.com

    He listed his name and address as New Jersey, yet his IP shows as Amsterdam.

    So I go have a look and the only things uploaded were a php emailer script, a long list of names, and a message text - sending out one of those bogus paypal emails.

    I immediately deleted the account and notified paypal, then here to let you folks know. If this is not the right forum, my apologies.

    Have a great day!

    Could you possibly PM me the Second name this guy signed up with?

    We had a signup from an Amsterdam IP today with a NJ address, after asking politely about it, we got a long winded story and later received an email that he needed the account "Urgently"

    Just making sure it aint the same guy, although it scarily has the same type characteristics.

    Is there any "blacklist" site where you can record bad signups?

    I'm almost sure you probably have the same guy. He uses the domain http://richard.com and is signing up from IP 81.86.195.245
