Lebanese Spammers - update

Postby zeez » Tue Jun 13, 2006 11:14 am

Lebanese spam seems quiet lately... Most of them stopped... The return on investment is very bad i guess... And some of us spent so much time attacking them, calling ISP and clients... So the "stupid" clients and the "stupid" ISP are harder to find now... They are getting smarter or better informed...

(1) One source of Lebanese spam is still "working", but they took a server a in China. Using more or less the same "cheap" techniques used for cybercriminals and dangerous scammers, as well as illegal software offers, penis enlargement, viagra & sex pills etc.

(2) Also, the 1st Lebanon Group, who have specialized in (very heavy and abusive) search engine optimization and extremely vulgar e-marketing... are now spamming! They call it "bizmail"... And they send it through France [wanadoo, IP: 90.0.1.28]. Their domains are: firstnetlb.com, 1stbusinesslebanon.com. They are hosted by Alabanza in the US (they are Alabanza web hosting resellers).

If you receive spam from Lebanese sources, please post a message here or contact the site admins directly.

EADINT

Postby admin » Thu Jun 29, 2006 8:13 pm

Good news!

Rami El-Zein (whom Murex reported earlier in this thread) has contacted us directly a few days ago to clarify things. He was very cool, professional and not a spammer himself, and not really aware of the details: his company is hosting the main websites of EADINT, the spammers...

So Hayssam Mokammal is just one of his web hosting client and they are not "partners" in any way... Rami was just 'tolerating' it, I suppose... as long as the guy wasn't using his company's SMTP, it was OK... (the spammer always used a remote SMTP, he only kept his websites on hostrix's server)

Rami promised that the following domain names will be removed from his company's servers and from his company's registrar account:

eadint.com / eplusme.com / eadmail-lb.com


Isn't that nice...?

(Murex, please edit your message and remove his personal email addresses etc.)

But will Mr. Mokammal find a cleaner ways to advertize his cute little business, or will he look for another host to start all over again... the future will tell... 8)

Terranet and EADINT!

Postby murex » Wed Jul 05, 2006 1:34 pm

This is completly NUTS... Not only they used Medialeb... But Terranet just advertised (triple email 3 times a day) through EADINT! The peace of human shit called Hayssam Mokammal is alive and quicking... Someone shoot his face - with a creamy cake... - PLEASE.

Terranet, a serious Lebanese ISP "until further notice", decided to launch a blind massive 100% SPAM campaign to advertise for... their new ANTI-SPAM product!!! What the hell is this suppose to be??? What the fuck is going on at Terranet? Is this a very high degree of cynism...? Or a BIT FAT serious mistake... Terranet always showed a perfect anti-spam attitude... That is completly nuts...! We're inquiring HARD...

Is Joe Haddad a criminal?

Postby admin » Fri Jul 07, 2006 2:17 pm

HOT NEWS :-)

One of our forum members contacted the spammer Joe Haddad a few days ago. He did not really mean to. We was calling Thai Clinic, to try to convince them to stop spamming and they forwarded the call to Joe Haddad (it is probably his business or maybe he just works there). The guy denied everything and played it as if he didn't know what was Silhouette (the name of his spam business) and so on.

This morning, Joe Haddad called our forum member back. He insulted him and treatened him physically, repeating hysterically: "you don't know who I am!"...

This has just been reported to our lawyer, and he said that we shouldn't do anything for the moment. (Man, if the dude calls you back, please let us know as soon as possible!)

Joe Haddad is a DIRTY LITTLE RAT.

Postby zeez » Sun Jul 09, 2006 10:55 am

Just to confirm here that Joe Haddad is a DIRTY LITTLE RAT. He called me back to insult and threatened me. I told him to come now, so I can show him what I can do for him :) He got nervous and said "yes i will come now" :D I wish spammers started to attack me physically! It would be so much easier to fight spam! At last, I'd have the perfect 100% LEGAL reason to litteraly smash faces :twisted:

This Joe Haddad guy is the worst type of SPAMMER. He spams EVERY DAY for his Thai Clinic beauty "services"... I think he will never stop unless he dies, and unfortunately he is only 43. From his profile it is easy to tell that even if an anti-spam laws come out in Lebanon, he'll try to continue his shit as much as he can (his SMTP server is China like most cybercriminals & viagra spammers).

His Thai Clinic - his personal business located in Sassine, Ashrafieh - sounds like some kind of whore house... and he lives & works there, watching over the girls, the money, and the spam... He represents the archetype of the cheap thirld world pimp.

Last but not least, Joe Haddad pretends to be a "freemason" and runs the site alharamclub.com. If he really belongs to some kind of Freemason fraternity, someone should inform them as soon as possible, so they know what kind of guy he really is.

Chicken, Eggs and Cockroaches

Postby admin » Sun Jul 09, 2006 12:20 pm

Keep cool Mr. zeez :D

I say peace and love... Even for pimps... You know there are cheap pimps in every corner of the world! It's like drug dealers. They are here because local businesses pay them for the stuff. The only way to go is to educated the businesses. And even better in fact, to educate the consumers: that means the Lebanese people in general. Because the only way to educate a profitable businesses is the educated its clients!

When people don't like to receive spam, they filter it, and do not even see it. In "internet aware" countries, if someone gets a spam, the reaction is ALWAYS negative. It has not always been like that, but in 2006, it is true that a spam always has the opposite effect. It has been prooved that the brand that is spamvertised automatically looses popularity instead!

For a "noble product", it is well known now that "unsolicited emails" - even if they are presented very nicely - have a strong counter-advertising effect. The only spam that still works these days, are regional little businesses (often half-legal), or real scams or illegal products: viagra and sex pills, penis enlargement, fake lotteries, serious financial scams etc.

That's why you'll NEVER receive a spam from a REPUTABLE BRAND. And Lebanese spam will always be limited to Lebano-lebanese little businesses who do not care about their international reputation. I suppose because the country is very late internet-wise, the Lebanese people are not very used to "internet ethics". But when the targeted people (not clients or spammers) stop responding to the spams and start filtering their mails properly, the local businesses can only realize that they are loosing their money. That's when they stop asking for it, and it disappears alone!

After all, instead of wasting time smashing cockroaches (and cleaning their discusting guts on your floor), it is MUCH smarter to keep a clean kitchen so they don't come. And if other people in your building do the same, then you have a clean building without ever having to smash anything.

TERRANET / Wassim Abou Rjaily - sales engineer?

Postby murex » Tue Jul 11, 2006 5:08 pm

I called Terranet almost the next day. They transfered me to Wassim Abou Rjaily. I told him: "Shou? You are spamming like crazy for your new anti-spam filter, don't you find that a bit ironic?"... Mr. Wassim Abou Rjaily said that yes they sent this "spam", and that if I knew of better "companies" who do the same thing (email advertising) but that are "cleaner", I should email him their names... I told him I'll see. And he sent me his email address.

I sent at least 2 emails to Wassim Abu Rjaily and to all public emails at Terranet. I told him/them that all of us here were very pissed off, because by showing the bad example, they will encourage other businesses to spam also... And it spoils all our little anti-spam efforts here... Terranet are one of the main Lebanon Internet Providers for God's sake! They are suppose to act as a model on the Web! They never ever replied...

I think this SPAM they did can't be a mistake otherwise they'd have replied right away. And at the same time it is almost unbelievable... It was obvious Wassim Abou Rjaily decided to spam, he just wanted the crime to be done as clean as possible... In this forum, we've always said good things about Terranet. Their people used to respond very well to spam alerts. So what happened? Why did they decide to do that? Again, if it was a mistake, then another department would have replied to us right aways with details about this affair. We contacted all emails at Terranet and no one dared to reply anything.

HEY, ALL SPAMMERS & CYBERCRIMINALS OF THE WORLD, COME TO LEBANON! YOU WILL BE HAPPY HERE! (THE FOOD IS NICER THAN IN NIGERIA.)

Just for the records. Here is the quick profile of Mr. Wassim Abou Rjaily. Terranet forwarded me to him when I called because he was in charge of ordering the spam and he sounded very aware of what he did:

Wassim Abou Rjeily (Abou Rjaily)
Network Engineer
Corporate Sales Department
Terranet s.a.l Achrafieh - Lebanon
phone :+961 1 577511
Fax: +961 1 577533
Mobile :+961 3 364096

w.arjaili@terra.net.lb
warjeili@terra.net.lb
wassimar@yahoo.com
shadenys@yahoo.com

Wassim Georges Abou Rjeili (Abou Rjaily) was born on September 16, 1975. Although is born Orthodox, he is the main coordinator for the International Young Catholic Students (Middle-East section). He seems like a very cool person. Modern. Anti-racist. Anti-drugs. Used to be in Zahlé, now in Ashrafieh.

This guy presents himself as a "Sales Engineer". WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? Please someone tell me if you know what this means! On his signature it says: "Network Engineer" and then "Sales Department". Frankly I don't get it... What kind of networks does he "engineer" inside the Sales Department...? Maybe this terminology is just another way to say he's some kind of MARKETING SALES EMPLOYEE.

WHAT EVER THIS BOY IS QUALIFIED FOR. I BEG HIM TO SPEND SOME TIME TO COMPLETE HIS FORMATION AND LEARN HOW TO ADVERTISE ONLINE ACCORDING THE BASIC MINIMUM DECENCY... PLEASE MAN, TRY TO GO WORK ABROAD FOR A FEW MONTH AND LEARN THE RULES.

And what about Terranet? Well, they confirmed that Wassim Abou Rjaily did the good thing and they don't feel that SPAMMING is a mistake at all!

And what about Lebanon Internet users? Well, who wants to use the services of an Internet company who sends spam to advertise its new anti-spam filter? As a very wise person said in this forum: "All Lebanese ISP are Trash". It should be written on the first pages of all tourist guides to Lebanon...
