It has been entirely too long since my last Fanbox (SPAMBox) posting. I have received 125 SPAM emails from Fanbox. One of the emails actually ended up in my Junk box, but everything else went right into the Inbox. Perhaps Yahoo! has their filter backwards.
I’ve noticed some interesting ploys by Fanbox these days. For instance, of the 125 SPAM emails I received, they were sent by 17 different addresses:
- BuddyPoke (1) – Similar to the Poking you can do on legit social networking websites like Facebook
- Daily Babe (1) – Similar to the classic hot or not phenomenon. I guess Fanbox figured that hot chicks might help get people clicking.
- Daily Dog (2) – As if Cute Overload and ICHCB didn’t have enough cuteness, you can get a dose of Fanbox Animal SPAM with their daily dog feature
- Daily DONT (1) – Shouldn’t this just include not opening Fanbox SPAM emails?
- Do you think (1) – Fanbox is SPAM? YES!
- FanBox Fan (87) – These are the classic Fanbox Fan Requests
- Fans1@fanboxnotes.com (1) – One of the various SPAM note addressed used
- Fans3@fanboxnotes.com (2)
- Fans4@fanboxnotes.com (1)
- Flower Fans (1) – I just saw a message about this SPAM message on my Gadget Panel website. There is an interesting story about Gadget Panel. There was a sudden swell of bogus registrations on the website, all taking place within a matter of minutes. I’m not suggesting that Fanbox was attacking my system or anything. I’m just saying that it was rather interesting that there was a sudden influx of bogus registrations on the Gadget Panel website and a search on Google returns the article about Fanbox SPAM from gadgetpanel.com as the third link.
- Hot a Meter (1) – Yet Another Hot or Not Knockoff
- Kiss (1)
- Kitten Club (1) – Like the daily dog
- KittyPix (1) – More SPAMinal garbage from Fanbox. Can you believe that someone has actually registered the domain spaminal.com?
- PuppyPix (1)
- Question_It (4)
- SuperPing (1) – They are even trying to go after the super geeks!
So much SPAM to keep up with from Fanbox.
