Hong Kong Spam
Recently, there has been a large increase in spam based on .hk domain names. It would appear that spammers and other related crooks have realised that the Hong Kong domain registration allows anybody to register anything.
But are the authorities fighting back.
In the last two days, I've had two Hong Kong domain-based scams; LB-Technology and United Cargo Solutions. In fact I've received well over a hundred e-mails from both.
All web sites associated with these scams appear to have been shut down in the last few hours. This morning, another Hong Kong based scam, Lux Capital, also seems to have been torpedoed.
So perhaps the fightback has begun against the spammers.
I have a lot more quantitative information on this and other spam matters if anyone is interested.
