After more than 5 years with a suspended mailbox in a big brazilian ISP, I decided to reactivate this mail box for research purposes.
One hour after that process, I started receiving messages again.
The first coming from XXX-89-177-XXX.jetstart.xtra.co.nz, trying to sell me Viagra. (Does anyone knows where in the world NZ is ?)
Today, one day after the activation, 15 new messages, including a phishign scan about a Brazilian Bank. (with 6/41 detection rate in VirusTotal)
Good mailbox names can guarantee you a better chance to be located by spammers. Important to know that this mailbox was never ever used, but as it’s a good mailbox name, this guarantee me to be in the lists.
Is there someone working in maintain those SPAM Lists ? Five years was enough time, to be removed from any list, due the amount of email bounces generated.
Ok, I know. Spammers don’t care.
