No emails promoting sites are sent from this domain.
Nor are attachments sent to people I do not know.
Con artists are providing a spam generator that is using fake from email addresses to make it look like they are coming from my site and I assume others. Do not go to, much less give any money to, any sites they are promoting. The sites I have seen promoted so far could be called shady at best and most likely will just steal your money, get you added to a confirmed victim spam list and might even infect your computer. This includes trying to unsubscribe from them. Doing so will, at best, just confirm your address as a valid victim.
Since I have received bounce backs from the idiots using this spam generator at a rate of up to 10 per hour, I now a have program in place to make sure all of these bounced back emails (with headers) are reported to SpamCop, but the more of them reported the quicker these guys will be shutdown. Plus since this spam generator is obviously being promoted as a work from home scam, there will need to be a lot of people shutdown before the word will get out that using this spam generator is a good way to loose your internet access. So please submit any of these emails you receive to SpamCop. It's free and easy.
Seems SpamCop no longer thinks you should report spam returned to you because of a forged from. They say it's not your spam. I would think spamming pretending to be me is even more of a problem for me than them spamming me. And is not the grey issue junk email can be at all. Anyway I have added an option to my tool to send the reports directly instead of through SpamCop. It is posted at SpamRescue for anyone to use for free. Current detailed stats can be found at SpamRescue Stats
Also I'd like to note here that almost all of these scam spams I have received the week of 3/11/2004 were for sites that appeared to be down. (188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206 are something like 80% of them) I guess that even the spammers are getting scammed by this spam generator.
Lately many of the links seem to point host names made from random characters which don't actually exist. I can't be sure of course but from the accompanying text it looks like the people trying to use this generator have gotten even less technological. As in HTML would seem to be too complicated for them. Some of the text in the emails look like instructions on how to use the generator and some is just parts of random sentences. Hopefully this means the smart ones have moved on and we are reaching the bottom of the barrel.
Here are some of the sites being promoted through this scam spam as of 3/11/2004
