Advertisement for an on-line stock and commodity trading exposition,
to be held in Anaheim,
California. The company promoting the exposition provide a postal
return address. They provide a web page for registration. Their
web site is
hosted by Hostway Corporation, Chicago, Illinois. Telephone numbers
are provided on the web page.
Spam touting a stock with the symbol IGTT
(trading on the Over the Counter Bulletin Board, of course).
The E-Mail appears to originate from a consulting
company in Texas. Looking at IGTT
on Yahoo shows that there is no company profile, no research,
and no news headlines. Both the outfit touting IGTT
and IGTT themselves appear to be completely
unknown and invisible. Smells like a stock
Pump and Dump scam to me.
A subscription solicitation for Worth
magazine (I am already a subscriber). Worth provides their street address,
telephone and FAX numbers, their
E-Mail, and their web site addresses. Worth obviously are not trying
to hide anything.
Spam Turnkey Solutions (maybe they
meant to write Turkey) to bulk E-Mail
software and Bullet-Proof Web Hosting
(this means they they won't shut down Spammers). In other words, this is
Spam touting products for sending Spam! Incest indeed! Their web site
contains zero contact informationno street address,
no telephone or FAX numbers, and
no E-Mail address. Only a form to fill in. Their web site is hosted
by Monolit Internet, Kiev, Ukraine.
The Spam has been heavily forged so that it appears to have
originated from a school in Korea, RoadRunner Internet,
and AOL, all at the same time.
Clearly, this outfit are up to something shady.
