WolfBlog

Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

New Swedish spammer: Unibet

Published: Thursday 2011-01-20.

Today I received a spam e-mail from a company I actually thought was above such, namely Unibet. I mean, if you are trying to challenge Svenska Spel’s monopoly (read: earn money on illegal gambling) and has such an advanced system for circumventing Swedish law, they oughtn’t fall for the temptation of breaking the Swedish Marketing law. Or?

Abuse complaints sent through SpamCop and the Swedish Consumer Agency as usual.

Their e-mail claim that I have chosen to subscribe to such spam mail. I wonder where they have got such a stupid idea from? No, this is from an address list stolen from the net somewhere.

Jag har fått samma elände flera gånger. Kontaktade unibet som givetvis säger att de inte har något med det att göra, att det är någon annan som har skickat (vad skulle någon annan tjäna på det?). Mailboxarna med möjlighet att skicka abuse respektive unsubscribe är fulla och tömmas nog aldrig. Jag hade ingen info om någon Peter Softwolves däremot info om att jag prenumererat via ip-nummer 64.71.84.217 . Detta ipnummer går Humboldt, Iowa i USA. Förra gången var det ett ip-nummer till en firma i Kalifornien. Troligen fake även det.
