    Spammers

    ok, this is another of my pet peeves

    i'm just checking my spamkiller logs and thinking.......
    my personal url email account = no spam
    my bt accounts = no spam
    my lineone/tiscali account = 95 spams in the last 5 days

    is anyone else finding they are getting a lot of spam through isp's that tiscali have bought out and are tiscali selling username lists to the spammers

    any way of finding out?

    i dont realy get them on hotmail much either, just this lineone/tiscali problem.

    do you reckon that tiscali sold all the lineone account details when they took over (as a way of getting some money back)?

    Could well be ABc - when I used Lineone as an isp it was fine - shortly after tiscali bought them the spam began to arrive in droves so it would make perfect sense.

    Not with lineone, but I have a very old cable+wireless account which gets spammed at least 5 times a day
    The content is normally save $$$$ on a mortgage, see me naked, pyramid selling schemes.

    yeah, i've had loads of them too

    and of course the classic i'm a hard up college student and i earn x billion dollars in my spare time.

    although i have to admit i was amused by a couple that said to be removed click here, then the hidden link was to a site called nouce.com (no use?) still i got them thrown off their isp (although they have moved cos a m8 got one from them a couple of weeks back still using the nouce as the remove addy.

    you should see the lineone/tiscali forums, they are full with people complaining about their mailboxes getting spammed, oh its up to 121 killed now
