Techcello: Spammer

I started receiving spam messages from Techcello in April 2010 and have not found a way to stop them. Many do not include a company address, which violates the U.S. CAN-SPAM Act. And they have failed to stop spamming me in response to my requests, another violation.

They initially used just one From: and Reply-To: header:

That apparently is Deva Hariharan. Another spam used: Another used: And another used: They have used these SMTP servers:
  1. mail.aspiresystems.com (124.30.96.203)
  2. o50315430.outbound-mail.sendgrid.net) (50.31.54.30)
  3. mail.cellodevelopers.net (124.30.96.206)
  4. smtp421.elabs10.com (74.116.234.21)
  5. n13.mxout.mta1.net (178.33.9.172)

Aspire Systems was initally (see Update below) of no help in stopping this spam emanating from their SMTP server. They are at least partly responsible for this spam; they forwarded one of my email messages to deva.h@techcello.net to techcell03@aspiresystems.com. (It bounced due to "File too large".)

The techcello.net, techcello.com, saasguideline.com, and enablesaas.com domains are registered to Asteor Corporation.

Update, August 2010: I finally did reach someone at Aspire Systems who was able to stop the spam to me. I have since heard from others who have been spammed by Techcello, so they're still at it. And email to techcell03@aspiresystems.com STILL bounces.

Update, September 2012: I am STILL getting spam from Aspire Systems. Their spam is not compliant with the U.S. CAN-SPAM Act, either. And their WHOIS information has an incorrect phone number.

Update, June 2012: I received another spam from Techcello..com.

Update, October 2013: I received another spam from Techcello..com. It was sent from an SMTP server named mail.cellodevelopers.net; the Internet address of that server (124.30.96.206) is allocated to Aspire Systems.

Update, October 2014: I received a spam from Christy Reed <christy@saasguideline.com>. Update, April 2015: I received a spam from Linda John <linda@enablesaas.com>.
