NETWORK SOLUTIONS – Spammers from HELL!

Some 2 years ago, I was helping my tech-phobic girlfriend launch her online store and I begged her to switch from NS as registrar, largely because of their obnoxious pricing, but also due to their rep’.

Alas, at the time, I added my email address as her admin/contact, and, of course, we’ve long since gone our separate ways, except for NS, which, much like herpes, just keeps coming back.

I originally unsubscribed over a year ago, and it seemed to work, but for the last 2 months, they’ve been swarming my inbox with their ‘Congratulations! You’ve been selected..’, followed by their ‘Special Domain Sale’, their ‘Don’t Miss Out Sale’, a whole bunch of ‘Hurray, we’re extending the sale-sale’, and their ‘Last Chance — End of Year Domain Sale!’.

Please note, in accordance with our Privacy Policy, we will continue to send you notices and other important information affecting your account or services in order to fulfill our service obligations to you

So aside from several attempts to unsubscribe, I filed a complaint on their site, and when that got me nowhere, I got my ex to call them, again, to no avail..

I realize I can set gmail to dump all NS emails into my junkmail folder, but I check my junkmail occasionally, and I don’t want to encounter their name therein, anymore than be reminded of my ex, thus I’d much rather have them respect my right to never -ever- address me again.

So. if anyone knows of some agency/authority that can come down hard on them, please let me know, I’m under the impression that BBB won’t do much in this regard, but maybe I’m wrong, and then again, perhaps there’s a better option than BBB.

Try changing the registered email address and just create a dumy one for this spam.

Usually the system is setup in a way that once an email is added to the subscription list, changing the registered email address won’t matter. Besides, OP has tried to manually unsubscribe but in vain.

If you’re so serious about receiving mails from them, why don’t you report to Google? Besides, you could always add filters in your mail to bounce back that email or to prevent you from reading it ever again. Good Luck avenging the spamming of your inbox!

I have/had the same problem. In my case, it has gone on for nearly 15 years – since the 1990s.

In the past, I attempted to unsubscribe through 10’s to 100’s of unsubscribe requests, Support, Engineering Support, Executive Support (twice), FTC complaints (twice), FCC complaint, and BBB complaints (twice or thrice). I have clearly specified I don’t agree to any of their terms or conditions; and that I don’t want to be contacted.

I’m currently suing them: Maryland s Commercial Electronic Mail Act �14-3001 et seq; and Maryland s Consumer Protection Act �13-301(1) et seq. I’m trying to get my attorney to add Maryland’s Stalking and Harassment and Spam deterrence �3-805(1) (I’m not sure if I can bring action at this point). I could not bring suit under the federal CAN-SPAM Act because natural persons are not entitled to bring action (you basically have to be an ISP).

Let me know if you take them to court – I would be happy to lend you a hand to put another stake in those m****r f****s hearts. I work in information technology as a security architect, so I have intimate knowledge of the tricks these a**holes play to bypass spam filters (re: false and misleading subject/header/routing information to bypass detection and classification).

If you do sue them, I would recommend small claims court. My expenses for state court is about $15,000, so make sure you are ready for the battle. We are due in court in November 2013. Hindsight being 20/20, I should have used small claims court and retained a lawyer to guide me since there’s no difference in penalties/awards other than a cap in small claims court. Also make sure you get injunctive relief – make sure they are ordered not to contact you.

If you need an attorney in the MD/DC/VA area, try Eric Menhart. He’s got experience in UCE/spam cases dating back to 2004 or so. He’s also testified about UCE/spam before legislative bodies.
