EXCLUSIVE: DefendMyStreet.Com Substantively Linked To Spammers

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.
