Suspicious inquiry from
Hi guys,

today we received the following inquiry from which looks pretty similar to the ones we already received from the well known bad guys Predictlabs, DataBright, Equinoxservers and co:


My name is Jamal A Manning and I am the server provisioning head of Advisory Digital.
We usually are in need of dedicated servers to host several projects of our valuable
This time around too we have some projects which need a dedicated server with max. Uptime
and with good Bandwidth.
I would also like to inform you that we will be needing 5 usable IPs too with the server.

If you have anything matching my above basic requirements then please do get back to me to
discuss further about the specifications to which we will be needing the server.


What do you guys think about it?
To me it looks very suspicious and I guess the server would be used for spamming as well.



According to the mail headers of the inquiry, it originated at " ([])".
When googling for, I found report number 9c579a0b86f06e1d (unfortunately I can not directly post the link) at Fraudrecord, which is related to predictlabs/equinoxservers.

Most likely is another domain of these guys.


The web site is nothing more than a front. You can't actually order anything from it.

These guys are definitely spammers. Make sure to add them to FraudRecord.


LOL, today we got a new inquiry with the exact same text, but from the "server provisioning Manager" of "Atlantic
Communications" ( Now we're absolutely sure that this is a big group of spammers.


Sherman Tyrone is part of a larger spamming network based in Marocco and operates under many names and pseudonyms.

This client originally purchased a VPS from us and passed MaxMind Fraud checks. Turned out to be a spammer. After cancelling the service with this Sherman Tyrone he/she has been persistent in trying to reset his cancelled account even though we have sent 3 emails notifying that account has been closed. Seems to be using a referal company of I kindly advise to avoid like a plague.
