If you google that mail address, you get all sorts of dubious stuff:

  • rentawomb (what? he has one?)
  • php programmer
  • "link builder"
  • personal assistant

If you look at the link it seems to be one of those outsourcing companies that hire 3rd world people to do all sorts of low paying jobs.

It is good for the 3rd world communities because they can earn money but not so good for the rest of us :(

Seems odd though. Imagine someone stopping you in the streets somewhere: "hey you. Can i interest you in this beautiful watch?.. no? ... How about a website or would you prefer a surrogate mom?"

Now  this guy gets all of our email adresses.

Besides that I will see what I can do.

I'm not an expert but I was going to set up a new email account to hit him with. Hopefully this will reduce his chances.

I think that the best solution would be to install and configure a local mailserver and send the mails from there.
All he will have is the current name and ip of the machine the mails got sent from, but since most home computers have dynamic addressing he will end up having nothing.
After sending the spams all that is needed is to disconnect and reconnect.

The only way he could be able to find out who is sending the mails is only throught the isp's records.
And that, at least in most countries I know of, needs a court order.

P.S.: I know it's a bit too advanced for most people
P.S.2: OddBot: your idea would work great too. A new email from gmail, yahoo, msn or on of the other free mailservers out there would do.

would probably work but that would just allow that guy to take more of our time.

and im on a static ip...

basile's picture

I think we already spend too much time on this guy.
And yes, having a static ip can be a problem with my method.

Great! from now on I'll forward all my Nigerian emails to this twat. I'm currently getting about 2-3 a day.

HAHA I hate people like this. I made a program on my computer that sent each one of the emails a message 300 times. Hows that for spamming? A taste of his own medicine. (:
