Chen Yu (AKA Sprincy) Index


Country: China
State: Jiangsu
Changshu-based Chen Yu (陈宇) mostly sends digital image retouching and refinishing ("Photo Retouching Services", "Video Editing", etc) spam, but "Application Development" and Textile products spam have also been observed, and some mailings directly advertise spamming services.

Before July 2014 (and since at least Spring 2010) he operated without Internet assets of his own except dropboxes, relying on throwaway webmail accounts, open proxies and open relay sending sources. He hijacked several thousand servers all over the world to have his spam delivered, becoming one of the most serious problem on the Internet and inflicting massive costs to thousands of companies across the world.

After July 2014 he switched to a standard snowshoe distribution method and started to purchase low-cost VPSes from ISPs across the world.

However, several people over the years got informations by emailing them and getting back responses. In some cases, these responses contained links to websites, and whois lookups on the domains were made. Most or all of these domains are no longer active.

Incidentally - in spite of advertising themselves as a web design company - they were often seen just stealing someone else's site, irritating people who one day found their site cloned.

Summary in http://www.spamnation.info/go/domain/sprincy.com :

----------------------------------------------------------
Sprincy Information Technology

sprincy.com
Results

Unsolicited email apparently advertising the domain 'sprincy.com' has been received at one or more test addresses.
Name Sprincy Information Technology
Domain sprincy.com
Type consulting and outsourcing
Count 428
First sent 04.03.2009
Last sent 01.03.2011

Unsolicited emails promoting businesses associated with Sprincy do not mention the company by name. Usually, the only point of contact provided is an email address at Chinese webmail providers such as 'yeah.net', and the message may claim to come from one of a number of probably fictitious companies with names such as TMAK Information Technologies, TOESK Information Technologies, ATKED Information Technologies etc. etc

The messages advertise a wide variety of services. In the past, the sender has claimed to be a web design company, a graphic design company, a translation services provider, software developers, SEO experts, AI programmers, 'imaging professionals', mobile website developers and 3D animation experts. They have also offered bulkmail services.

Messages typically begin with a phrase such as ""We are a China based Imaging Professionals"", ""We are a China based studio providing innovative and cost effective CAD drafting"", or ""We are a China based software development provider"". The message may instruct recipients to look at the portfolio on their website (difficult to do, as the message does not include any URLs or other information identifying a website). Messages typically end with one of the many contact email addresses that they use (ibaniexpert@yeah.net, ibseoservice@yeah.net, dontechit@yeah.net, ibtechdon@yeah.net etc) and a fictional company name. The email addresses and company names typically change with each new spam run.

Responding to the addresses given in the messages usually produces a response from someone called 'Daniel', and may include links to one of several websites associated with Sprincy.com.

The constantly-changing names and addresses and the attempts to conceal the real name of the business suggest that the senders are quite well aware that they are sending spam. The improbably wide range of services offered and the deceptive nature of the emails suggests that they may also be scammers. At least one scam report has already been filed in relation to this company at My Web of Trust.

From http://resources.alibaba.com/topic/344887/Sprincey_Web_Design.htm :

Be aware of Sprincey web design company in China who deal under this name to get your deposit for developing your website and and soon after never reply to you after getting your initial deposit.

1) They are using tactics to send you emails under several different company names. Below is one of the emails received under a third company name from the same Sprincey we design Co. in China.

2) Company names they use are

-Sprincey web design

- Sprincey web design company Ltd

- heilong web design

3) Dan is the person who contacts you for the deposit

4) After you send the deposit you will never hear a word from this person.

5) Their phone numbers dont work and also their fax numbers

6) If you tell them to unsubscribe you from their list, they will still keep sending you emails and say that ....'You are receiving this email because we wish you to use Sprincey web design'.

BEWARE AND DO NOT SEND YOUR MONEY OR DEAL WITH THIS COMPANY. YOUR EMAIL BOX WILL BE FILLED WITH SPAM EVERY DAY AS WELL FROM THEM EVEN THOUGH YOU DONT WANT TO RECEIVE THEIR EMAIL.

For the best interest of the business community,

Sprincy Web Design: Spammers

Over the past ten years, I've gotten a large number of unsolicited e-mails from somebody calling themselves Sprincy Web Design in China.

Their apparent message is simple: they wish me to use their business.
I've come to a startling conclusion.

They are not web designers.
They are in the business of spamming.

And they are using their web design spam to advertise their ability to defeat anti-spam measures and force recipients to cover their costs.

They've renamed themselves Sprincay Web Design, Sprinncay Web design, Spregweb Design, Spregwebtech, SprWebTechSA, DaniTechWeb, Sprevicay Web Design, UK-web---design, Sprinceyweb2, Sprinceyweb3, Sprinceyweb4, daniel13365, daniel3365, danielcyweb, webdanremove, Websitecy, SPRCY Web design, SPR.CY, geist-und-kultur, sprinnceymbr, Sprincycs, webdan789, cywebtech, sprinncaycn49m, sprwebtech27, fhermes, Sprianncay, heinlongweb7, danisprwebcs162, danitechcs, websouspram, danisprwebcs90, sprwebdanitech159, Spriaencay Web Design, webtechdanispr20, endeavorcy, hatishbi, sprwebtechcsa, Spreeeiicay Web Design, unsubscribespr, endeavorkax4lin, geidel-bremerh, Saprok Web Design, and sprevicay Web Design.
