It looks like DefendMyStreet.com may indeed be exploiting Denver suburbanite’s fears about sex offenders to collect their email addresses and spam them. Reader Loy, who fights spam for a living, sends us the result of his probes.
A search with Netcraft Toolbar reveals DefendMyStreet.com’s nameserver organization as Megamailservers.
Furthermore, their IP space appears to come from: InternetNamesForBusiness.com , a well-documented spam/scam outfit.
Loy says, “Megamailservers is the mail services agent for Telus Internet and has been blocked by several large IPs for spam and spam-support dating back to 2005 (in Internet terms, a long time).”
The owner of DefendMyStreet.com, Florian McCann, is right. We really do need to defend our streets… from the likes of him.
