"Write to Us"

For four months we had several mailto links on our site. When you clicked on one of the "Make Contact" buttons, it called up a pre-addressed e-mail window making it easy and convenient for interested people to write to us. We later discovered that SPAMMERS have software that searches the internet for mailto links, and then distributes these addresses widely to other SPAMMERS. After four months we were getting hundreds of SPAMS each day. We started using Outlook's Junk Senders List to automatically delete SPAM e-mail. It turns out that only 30-50 SPAMS daily are from repeat addresses. The majority are from new addresses not yet on the junk senders list. It was now taking several minutes daily to add new SPAMMERS addresses to the junk senders list, and then delete the SPAM. Now the junk senders list has many hundreds of addresses, and this is slowing down the downloading of e-mail. Then we found out that Microsoft Outlook only checks the first several letters of addresses to identify SPAM. This means that when legitimate e-mail starts with the same characters as SPAM addresses on the junk senders list, it is being automatically deleted also. Why Microsoft would make outlook check only the first few characters instead of checking the whole address for an exact match is beyond comprehension. (But then so is the unreliability and vulnerability of the Windows operating system). We were forced to remove all the mailto links from the site. This didn't help reduce SPAM. We were forced to change our address. This of course wastes lots of time and energy, especially telling important contacts about the change.
This gave us an idea for attacking SPAMMERS. What if we have mailto links on our site addressed to SPAMMERS ? This should result in hundreds of SPAMS being sent to SPAMMERS by SPAMMERS. The idea is that, even if SPAMMERS don't actually receive the SPAM because they use fictitious addresses, it will clog up their domains and service providers to the point that they will have to be shut down, or at least cause the sending of SPAM to be slowed down. This will also cause the sending SPAMMERS to receive huge amounts of non-existing address notices, further jamming up their domains. We hate to do anything that might slow down the internet, but since the SPAMMERS are attacking us already, and since no one is doing anything about this problem, it is our only recourse. War IS War !
The mailto links below are all addressed to SPAMMERS. You may wonder why there aren't thousands of these. The reason is that Outlook will not allow us to copy/paste the addresses from the blocked sender list, or save them to a text file. Therefore we have to copy the addresses manually one at a time, which is highly time consuming, and is causing carpal tunnel syndrome, as is adding mail to the junk senders list, and deleting it. Will SPAMMERS pay my medical bills ? Many of the SPAMMERS addresses are so long that we can't see the entire address, and the window in Outlook that displays the junk senders list is very small and has no scroll capability so we can't copy these. Because it is so time consuming, we have stopped adding the many spam addresses we get spam from. If anyone out there knows how to copy the junk senders list to a text file, please write us and tell us how to do it. Unfortunately it's impossible to contact or get technical support from Microsoft.

Recently we have continued to receive telemarketing calls at home even though it is now illegal. These calls are identified by coming from distant area codes, at night or in the early morning, and weekends, and no message is left. Upon calling these numbers back they are mostly busy, and no one answers when you do get through. If these were legitimate calls a message would be left, they would not come at night or on weekends, and someone would answer when we call back. For those who may be interested in investigating these mysterious numbers, they are listed here:

          817-786-1074       4:34 PM Friday     12-5-2003
          A helpful person told us that this number belongs to Warrentech Direct, a direct mail and telemarketing firm in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area that tele markets extended warrantees..

          These last two calls were Circuit City trying to talk us into buying an extended warrantee for a monitor we purchased 2 weeks earlier. At the time we told them we didn't want an extended warrantee. That's the last time we shop Circuit City !
          216-377-6240       7:02 PM Monday   4-12-02 A week ago I called Direct TV to inquire about service. This call was from Power Direct who sells Direct TV, waking me from a nap to try to sell Direct TV. I didn't like their deal anyway. Direct TV has a very limited selection of channels compared to the big dish. Their Fax number is 216-377-6241 Their web site contact page is

          During the last week of the current political campaign we have been flooded with political telemarketing calls. Dob Dole called us and a friend on her cellular telephone. Of course we don't listen to telemarketing calls from anyone as we have no respect for anyone who ignore the national no-call list. Needless to say, we will NEVER vote for Bob Dole, ever. We NEVER vote for anyone who telemarkets.

          These next calls came from Wachovia Bank. They called at night and left no message. When I called back to see what jerk telemarketer had waken me, I found it was my bank. They wanted me to make a deposit to my instant cash reserve account. I told them I would make the deposit, and that they were never again to call me before 11 AM or after 5 PM. I explained to them that they must leave a message when they call or they will never get in touch with me. They agreed. I deposited more than I had promised, when I said I would. But the next day more calls started pouring in. When I called back to see who it was calling at night without leaving a message, waking me, I found it was Wachovia again. They could not find why they had called. They said they had a note about leaving a message (because I screen calls), but that they would not stop calling me unless I wrote them a letter. I got very mad at them. Now I know why everyone calls these jerks "Walk-All-Over-You" This list is incomplete because they call so much that they keep wiping out the old records of their calls from caller ID memory.

          606-833-0105       8:32 AM Wednesday 2-8-2006 I found this number on my caller ID and called to ask why they called at this early hour and failed to leave a message. I recognized the recorded message and the name of the contact, Melissa Pearson (606-877-0102 ext. 7017), as someone I have talked to before and told her never to call me again. But here, a few months later, she has called me again and again failed to leave a message. The company is located in Branford Connecticut. They claim not to be a telemarketing firm and that they follow all state and federal laws. Yet they repeatedly call people on the national no call list, even after saying they would stop doing so. As best as I can make it out from their recorded message, the company name is Wester, Inc.
          616-833-2855       8:42 PM Monday 2-13-2006  "Is the lady of the house is ?" They woke me from a nap.
          800-253-2638       7:00 PM Thursday 2-23-2006 When I called back to find out who disturbed me during dinner and asked why they aren't using the national no-call list: "We don't have to use the no-call list because we're not telemarketers" They were begging for money for the fire department. I now regret being part of a foundation that gave $10,000 to the local fire department 2 years ago...never again !

          I got a call from the Democratic party. I forgot to record the number. This is the second time Democrats have telemarked me in the last year. Needless to say, I will not be voting for Democrats.
          250-649-7428     6:22 PM Saturday 10-14-06 This was a company called Synovate. I was watcxhing a movie with a friend. The caller started talking at high speed and wouldn't let me get a word in edgewise. I  hung up on them without getting a chance to tell them never to call me again, or asking why they are so special that they can ignor the national no-call list.

          I see it has been a long time since I added numbers to this list. This is not because these criminally originated annoying calls have stopped or even declined. It is because I don't always have the time or energy to do it. Quite often I am awaken from a nap and am too upset to think clearly.
          732-451-1583     7:19 PM 12-5-2007 When I answered the phone, no one was there. I waited because I was in the mood to tell them off. No one ever answered. I now have a device that will block and added numbers from ever being able to ring my phone again. It is called a "Person to Person". This is the first number I have added to it.

I told him it is not allright for them to call me in the early moring,and not allright to not leave a message. The asshole rudly told me that "North Carolina State law says they can call as early as 7 AM and that they can't leave a message...and you know what ?...We're going to keep calling. I would change banks if I could, but I have been doing business with First Union for 22 years and everyone inthe local office knows me. It's too much trouble. I need to contact a lawyer.

If someone out there can tell us who to report these crimes to so these criminals will be prosecuted, please let us know. Surely there is a class action lawsuit I can join !
