Data Champions / Sloan Marketing Index


Country: India

Low-grade "e-marketing" type spammer Sam Surapaneni has been at it for years. Many names, domains, aliases, disposable phone numbers and PO Box drops for USA "offices". Typically connects from dynamic Indian IPs. Such a tangled web he weaves!

Main Info


Long-running spamhaus based in India. Does "e-marketing" of all sorts, unfortunately including unsolicited bulk e-mail, e-pending/appending address acquisition, list sales, mailshots and all that realm of abuse vectors. Spams to advertise its own marketing services. Uses fake names in the spam, but generally sends from its own dedicated IPs. Based in India but uses USA and UK mail drops. Uses many aliases, both business names and personal names. Sometimes tries to fool Spamhaus that he's not really Data Champions; we know he tries the same excuse with ISPs.

Use of data (lists) purchased from Data Champions has hurt the reputations of many small businesses which are ignorant of the bad practices and outright fraud so common in the mailing biz.

Data Champions owner Subhakar "Sam" Surapaneni appears to reside in the physical jurisdiction of India, probably Bangalore.

Data Champions uses many domains, but not as many as the Russian pillz spammers. Partial list includes:

They may be trying out the VOIP market, ipmomentum.com, or could that just be like other spammers, a front for botnet spamming?
