Free iPod/Nokia spam IPs


January 14, 2008

I’ve just visited a mobile phone forum I’ve had on the backburner and yet to properly develop, only to find over 100 threads posted over the past 2 months - by Nigerian spammers posing as fake companies to scam readers out of their cash.

My anti-spam plugins prevented them from being published, and it also gave me the chance to get a record of the IP’s being used by them - all now blocked.

In case you’d like a reference, here are the spam IP’s used to post spam for free iPod/Nokia spam:

41.219.192.54
41.204.224.13

72.3.137.82
77.220.0.64

81.199.49.171

82.128.5.187
82.128.6.251
82.128.9.31
82.128.13.154
82.128.18.116
82.128.18.211
82.128.23.132

83.138.172.72

Happy IP blocking. :)

    It’s a fraud - send no money, as there is no lottery win, and organised gangs are simply trying to scam general internet users.

    They put their phone number there I mean why can’t the U.N. or some policing agency get these bastards.
    Set them up , like they try to set us up. These scams are taking their toll on me, I’ve got the nerve to go to Nigeria myself and take these pricks out.
