Main Info


Michael Price runs a company selling harvested email lists. They scrape addresses from various sources including websites and then "verify" that their addresses are deliverable by sending out so-called "seminar invitations" or "health warnings".

If someone complains about this activity online such as in a blog entry, Michael threatens to sue them AND their employer if the blog is not taken down.

"We are getting two to three of these a day as well. The thing we notice is that the email address always has a different name before the @. We sell movie posters, and have noticed that all of these spam emails we have been receiving are addressed to movie stars such as Robert De Niro, so the email address will read rdeniro[at]moviepostersetc.com or Marilyn Monroe, and the email address will be marilynmonroe[at]moviepostersetc.com.

It seems as if some robot is just pulling random names from our site, and creating email addresses for them using our domain as the stem. Unfortunately, our email account is catching all of these emails. The emails are coming from various domains, and don't seem to have any purpose whatsoever, unless they are phishing for valid email addresses and see what bounces back and what sticks."

The "CFO Summit, CIO Summit, CMO Summit" they are advertising in spam, all proven to be fake, using images stolen from other sites:
