How fucking arrogant

| 2 Comments

can one get? I received a spam mail from a Belgian registry service a few hours ago. I hate spam, so I filed complaints with spamcop, and his provider. In addition, I also checked out his website and tracked down the person behind it all.

It turns out he's running a few commercial sites, all claiming to be legit companies, yet none of them carry the mandatory VAT number, nor their number assigned to them by the Chamber of Commerce. Both these things are extremely important when proving you are an official/legal business operator. Either he doesn't carry them because he doesn't have those, or he's a big fraud.

Checking the online listings of the Ministry of Economics (or whatever it's called in English) didn't show up any listing, for any of his businesses. Well, the list is not complete and could not contain all data, but still... it gave me an indication.

Anyway, I told him to stop spamming me - especially based on old whois/DNS information - and warned him that unless he wanted a little visit from the economic inspection in regards to his missing VAT and Chamber of Commerce registry numbers, he'd better get his act together. You wanna know what his reply was?

"Dear sir, I don't want to receive any more mail from you."

Doesn't this break all rules of common courtesy? He's the spammer, I tell him to shove it up his ass, and then he reacts like that. Either he thinks he's being funny, or he picked a bad way of telling me how I should have asked him to stop the unsollicited mail.

I don't care... I'm looking into this tomorrow thursday. In the mean time, if you're living in Belgium, and also received the spam regarding co.be, com.be, sa.be registrations from iCenter.be, please get in touch with me. If this moron thinks he's the smartest kid on the block, I'll gladly scatter his illusion.

Spammers Die.

I've had that happen to me too, but then on messenger. People suddenly send me an IM and I ask them to leave me alone because I'm busy (I usually start asking politely) and then somehow they twist and turn things so I end up the bad guy and they tell me to leave them alone, whereas THEY started the whole stupid thing... only one solution for idiots like that: a nice button called "IGNORE"

i get similar on msn too people i dont know keep adding me to their list and then when i refuse it thier like hey why are YOU(me) adding ME(them) its so annoying. But in this case with you j ide have done the same thing! go for it
