i have never been a customer of JiffyLube but somehow I got on their list. Every day I get spam e-mail from them and I have been unable to stop it. The domain in the "from" changes every time so I can't simply ban a domain. The message today was from [email protected]yz

In the BoxTrapper configuration, i have added to the Ignore List these lines:

from contains Jiffy
subject contains Jiffy

Even with those lines in my Ignore List, I still get email from them. What can I do to stop them?

Better yet if it is indeed Jiffy lube sending the mail they should be can spam compliant.

1. take meticulous records saving the spam
2. use the snail mail request and send them a remove request via registered mail.
3. wait 72 hours after singing
4. if you receive 1 more spam Sue them.

Even if its just small claims court you can do it over and over when you start costing them money they will stop :)

Not the first time Jiffy lube has had some shady Spam practices

I like the idea of sueing. :)
I have scalabledns spamming me, and no matter what they will not stop.
In the end, I googled them, found a list of IP's they use and added them to my CSF deny list.
I've not seen a spam email from them now for about a week.
