Annoying spammer

I'm getting daily spam on my admin address of lotusmatrix.net. It's coming from
[144.132.53.56] (helo=CPE-144-132-53-56.vic.bigpond.net.au)
which is owned by Aussie telecoms giant, Telstra. I've sent the details to their abuse address. Let's see if they do anything about it. They're forging my own admin address as the return which makes it particularly annoying.

nice...

I have, of course, broken the link, I'm not doing anything that aids spammers or businesses that employ them. According to the whois details, it's owned by a certain Liu Fei in China. However, according to their website they're:

If they're doing it through the contact form on the site, I've arranged a nasty surprise for them.

You're in luck. I live in Seattle and I am either going to their office, or sending them a letter. They are about 15 mins. from my home. Washington State has a tough law for spammers that won't cease their contact with people who have opted out. They will stop sending this to me at least. GRRRRRRR

How obnoxious can they get?

I have been researching this company and have not found any information with this exception. Any other comments on their services and reputation or charactor? They say have 24hr support but there is no phone number or email link.

Hi Les,

I happened upon your site today as I was searching for information regarding that exact same spam email from emailadvertisinginc.com. They're unbelievably annoying. I sometimes get as many as six a day. Have you had any success in stopping them? If you have, might I ask how you went about it? I'd dearly love to drive a stake through the heart of this one.

Many thanks.

John

Hi Les,

I'm curious to know how you broke the link to cease the spam from NPR -- I'm getting spammed by them as well, the same way you did. I'm also assuming that they're not a legitimate business?

Would you mind shooting me an email so I can take care of this? I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks - Gail
