Threats & Rants


The following email was sent by David Brett using his alias "Simon Green" to and a number of random UK police addresses. The purpose of sending to random UK police addresses would have been some hope of wasting police time anonymously, however "Simon Green" possibly did not realise that Gmail would show the real sender's account name in the 'From' field... ''.

In 2011 "David Brett" sent the following threat to Spamhaus. Of note, the threat comes "From" the name and address "Steve Linford" <>. Surprisingly Brett had registered a number of "spamhaus" domains and was fraudulently using the name of Spamhaus CEO Steve Linford as his "From" address. Spamhaus instantly placed all the bogus "spamhaus" domains registered by Brett on the Spamhaus Domain Block List.

A month earlier the same individual, calling himself "Simon Green", had sent Spamhaus the following threat:

From: "The UK Data Company" <>
Date: 24 August 2011 13:28:41 CEST
Subject: SBL114756 SR01
return-path: <>

Hello I am writing to you to get my block lifted in my ip address.

I will take legal action against your organisation if you continue to negativly impact my business.

You have no legal right to do what you are doing and entrapment is illegal in the UK and my clients include Police, NHS, Crimestoppers and other large organisations.

We are a legitimate business and just becuase you say we are spammer that is only your opinion based on your trap tactics which are unacceptable.

It does not have any weight as we are governed by Data Protection and DMA who are the regulators and not your organisation.

I want you to send me the email address of this trap as if we take you to court which we will do then you will have to divulge this to the judge as evidence.

All the best
