We’ve gotten past CNN and MSNBC spam. The newest round of spam theme (speme) is pushing ADT home security systems. According to the From field of the messages, “Certified ADT Dealer” or “Authorized ADT Dealer” is now spamming to sell ADT memberships.
All of the messages received at planetmike thus far have had both of these postal addresses listed:
3549 North University Provo, Utah 84604
11915 126th ave Kpn | Gig Harbor, WA 98329
The Utah address is apparently a mail center of some sort, based on the wide range of suites at that address. The Washington state address is in the middle of nowhere, but has been used in other spam messages earlier this month, see Email Spam and Scams Stink! for details.
The ADT spam give two of these links for online unsub requests
These domains currently all resolve to 126.96.36.199.
ADT does not have a method to contact them from their web site that would not end up with my postal address, email and phone being besieged with marketing from ADT about their services. So hopefully they will learn of their rogue affiliate (or more likely, someone spamming and scamming in ADT’s name) when they get tons of complaints on Monday morning.
