Despite filing a complaint to PRIVACYPROTECT.ORG about the SPAM I received below, and providing evidence that others were victimized with unsolicited SPAM, PRIVACYPROTECT.ORG failed to remove the privacy of WEBDESIGNINGNETWORK.COM.
Here’s the response i received from Privacy Protect:
Privacy Protect is just a service enabled on the domain name “XXXXXXXXXXXX.com”.
Please note that the issue you brought to our notice needs to be filed with the Registrar of the domain name. Find the registrar’s details of the domain name at http://domainwhitepages.com/
Have a nice day.!!
Sending SPAM is a United States Felony Criminal Offense violation of Code Title 47, Section 227(a)(2) (B) CAN SPAM Laws, Punishable by up to 5 Years in Prison and $250,000 fines PER offense.
Therefore, PRIVACYPROTECT.ORG is not only hiding and protecting the identity of spammers, but is also hiding and protecting the identity of CRIMINALS.
Here’s more complaints:
http://www.webutations.org/go/review/privacyprotect.org – This Complaint states:
“This company’s service, in my experience, hides the identity of thousands of SPAMMERS. I, personally, have reported at least eighty SPAMMERs to them and not one single time have they taken action. They claim that they will take action on subsequent complaints but, even when I have supplied multiple instances of SPAM from a domain they protect over the course of a year or two, they take no action. This company is clearly either unethical, ineffective, inefficient or just plain “in bed” with the criminal SPAMMERs”
If you have been victimized by SPAMMERS who’s identity was hidden by PRIVACYPROTECT.ORG and they refused to remove the spammers privacy after you reported them please contact us and send your a copy of our evidence including the spam you received, a copy of your complaint and the date your complaint was submitted
