Main Information

Nicolas Cantaro is a long-time spammer from Argentina who sells spam lists and other databases. He sends primitive, old-school spam, often for his own spamming services. He often uses two-stage spam, where the first spam message requires the recipient to reply before he sends a message with his website in it. Many spam victims identify him as the "Bases De Datos" spammer, since most of his spam is in Spanish and that string appears in most of it.

Cantaro uses free webmail accounts and unidentified or generic IP addresses, often in Argentina, for his spam sources. For responses to his spam, he uses free webmail drop-boxes and spamvertised web sites on free hosts, to avoid exposing his actual web site and IPs.

He sends relatively low spam volumes, but has continued spamming for many years despite repeated terminations for spamming.
