AAA Trinity Audio - Foolish Spammer

okay, so not all spam is easy to fight.  Much of it comes from outside the United States, sent by professional spammers, advertising companies that operate outside of the United States and have no legitimate contact information and no real way to punish the spammer.

However, today i received a poorly formatted spam message alleging to be from someone at Microsoft.  The email itself was advertising a Shreveport company called AAA Trinity Audio.  A "legitimate" company with an online store powered by Yahoo.

Upon investigating the email headers, I saw that it was actually sent from a Mindspring/Earthlink personal DSL account:

Received: from user-1120nrg.dsl.mindspring.com ([66.32.95.112] helo=jlo333)
    by pop-tawny.atl.sa.earthlink.net with smtp (Exim 3.36 #10)
    id 1DuYOt-0007hd-00
    for rick@webworksllc.com; Mon, 18 Jul 2005 12:23:27 -0400

I also found out that the web site was hosted by Yahoo's web site hosting division.

Well both Yahoo and Earthlink have rigid anti-spam policies, so it was actually pretty simply to report this schmuck to his internet provider (Earthlink) and his web hosting provider, Yahoo. I don't imagine it will take long for his web site and online store to be disabled and for his internet access to be disabled.
