Gregory D. Evans, Spammer in Violation of the CAN-SPAM Act

Sat Dec 31 20:17:02 CST 2011


[Update: A week after the initial spam wave, Evans sent several additional waves advertising his LocatePC service (5th) as well as National Cyber Security Radio (6th, 9th, 10th, and 11th). Two are included at the bottom. The NCS Radio spam was sent each time as HTML and was over 500k, the copy below is text only (161k). Attempts to unsubscribe are met with "Too many connections" or "Invalid information".]


On December 29, 2011, Gregory Evans / Hi-Tech Crime Solutions sent out email to a long list of people. The list included people who signed up for his broken "amihackerproof.com" scanning service as well as hundreds of security professionals that never signed up for any of his services or had a business relationship with. This is one of many ways that the email campaign violated the Federal CAN-SPAM Act.

The email does not clearly state it is an advertisement, does not provide a mailing address for the company sending the email, and offers no method for removal from the mailing list. These are three distinct guidelines that Evans / Hi-Tech Crime Solutions violated in sending this email. Each mail he sent in violation of the CAN-SPAM Act is subject to penalties up to $16,000.
