    Exclamation Grand Prive Spammer

    Couldn't help noticing some CAP members complaints over this spammer. It appears quite apparent Grand Prive is reluctant to adequatley deal with this.

    A bit tired but I found this domain very interesting found in source code.

    Yeah, Gordon is really pissing me off. He has done NOTHING about it and won't even respond about this heavy-duty spammer anymore.

    I have spent a LOT of my own time lately tracking down spammers who are spamming for:

    Casino Coins
    Grand Prive
    Fortune Affiliates
    Referback


    Nick - Casino Coins is the ONLY one being pro-active on this if you ask me. I think these guys are starting to feel the USA crunch and are turning to these spamming outfits to gain traffic. Otherwise why NOT use their OWN T&C's to take the revenue from these creeps and shut them down??

    Hey kwblue I am unable to pursue this matter further. But I am 100% confident you have the acquired skill sets to catch this person.

    Usually the proper protocol most people use is contacting the affiliate program, in this case Grand Prive and perhaps some others. Although it is good advice, it fails miserable in taking care of the problem. The spammer lives on to fight another day. Gordon’s avoidance of the situation in my opinion is indirectly an admission of quilt.

    This particular spammer is a real nuisance. The fellow I believe may operate out of Russia and China so complaining will do very little. However the transmission from there to the U.S can still be stopped at the port of entry. Any server that resides in U.S that propagates the transmission has an abuse department. Contact a few of them nobody likes email spam.

    Nobody likes to receive spam email and yet many companies endorse this sort of practice. There are plenty of ways of taking care of this. I must agree an ad agency is involved located within the U.S. I believe Grand Prive has taken the dirty road and should be perused with vigour.

    Some tips:

    1. Most spammers avoid paying taxes. The U.S Government would be more than happy to have these email forwarded to them net-abuse@nocs.insp.irs.gov

    2. Forward the emails to the DOJ Cyber Forensic Unit.

    3. Unsolicited spam emails are indirectly targeting children.

    4. Spamhaus project become a member. Attempt to have all servers blacklisted if they do not comply.

    In the meantime while I work very hard on my site Grand Prive is officially rouged. In the near future if permission is granted from a hacker’s perspective tell all section. The topic email spam: how, why, prevention (binary filtering), encryption, tracking methods, con artists, retrieving data, 3rd party tracking cookies, commercial forensic tools, uncovering the proxy, zombies, privacy violation, etc… This will hopefully be in the private section. I am going to get totally unplugged for this one.

    Thanks for hearing me out.

    Thanks for the info

    Yeah, this is a major spammer... I have tried getting the affy accounts shut down for a number of affy programs, but most of them just don't seem to care. The only one who cared was Casino Coins it seems out of the 5 programs this individual is spamming for.

    And, BTW, this spammer spams without affy tags for other properties which means this is a bought and paid for spammer as well. That's what is frustrating.

    Any luck with this spammer? If not here's my fav link xww.nags.org just trying to point everyone in the right direction I hope. I have not received none from the Grand Prive spammer.

    The spamming problems exists today and and it will exist tomorrow.

    I appreciate everyones efforts on this, but realitically nothing is being resolved. My inbox still reaks of the same spam as it did 2 years ago.

    Peter/Greek39 PM please - much can be discussed.

    Grand Prive is doing nothing... I have made the request at CAP for any spamming relating to Grand Prive to be sent to:

    grievances *at* affiliateguarddog.com


    We are working up a specific email to Microgaming to see if we can have them put a leash on their licensees since Grand Prive will not stop this 'affiliate'.

    I must agree email spam will always be a huge problem. Most people have become so numb to the situation and therefore do anything about it. This is perhaps one issue the spammer counts on, doing nothing.

    Time, patience and little tech know is all that is needed. Email spammers are jailed almost everyday. Why? Because they are eventually caught by someone.

    Side note:

    China’s Internet Policy:

    No unit or individual may use the Internet to create, replicate, retrieve, or tansmit the following kinds of information:

    Section 6 – promoting feudal superstitions, sexually suggestive material, gambling, violence, murder;

    Most countries have some sort of policy regarding their citizen’s use of the Internet. The problem lies with enforcement. In most cases the information is provided by outside sources enabling Governments to act. Believe me when it comes to taxes thet certanily do.

    I would further argue if Grand Prive were indeed ignoring our requests they are facilitating in a criminal act.

    From my perspective I would rather catch the person.

    Just a thought
