Domain Registration SEO/Web Development Spam from LogoJeeves
Following a whois contact mishap on a recently registered domain, I noticed some spam making it through the Firewall today. I also received spam through text message as posted here.
It looks like it is coming from Godaddy but is not coming from Godaddy or their network. The company behind it seems to be a North American firm called logojeeves. The spam that is getting through is coming from a local datacenter here in Toronto: Peer 1 Dedicated Hosting
We have contacted the Peer 1 team via abuse email and Twitter, but yet to get a reply.
Spam offending domains:
99monsters.us logojeeves.com godesigndaddy.com logojeevescoupon.com website-design-guru.com submissionforsearch.com 99monsters.us 101logodesigns.com buildbrandstoday.com logonoir.com studioxcess.net
The domains are registered with NameCheap and Name.com. We have contacted both abuse teams here but they will take further action as the mail is not hosted with them.
We also saw spam from the same group come from Google, Microsoft and Yandex which was mostly blocked. It is the Peer 1 IP below that was making it through.
