Please see updated post for CompanyV Contact with ConstantContact

For years we have recommended Constant Contact to our customers because they had proven themselves to hold to a policy of ZERO SPAM TOLERANCE.

Recently we have had complaints regarding a sender using Constant Contact that has not only ignored unsubscribe requests, but sends unwanted spam EVERY DAY.

It is our policy with blocking mail from senders who misbehave to attempt to work with ISPs by sending abuse complaints and by providing clear and concise information to assist in tracking down and stopping offenders.

Complaints had been sent to ConstantContact at abuse@constantcontact.com

The IP address of the send server:
ip=208.75.123.225 rdns=ccm29.constantcontact.com helo=ccm29.constantcontact.com

The recipient had unsubscribed and continues to get spam….
List-Unsubscribe: http://visitor.constantcontact.com/do?p=un&m=001Jf_L2PK-omNc-yE7um0TSQ%3D%3D&se=001Koqj5cDv4VE_IDSlJK9eUQ%3D%3D&t=001EkZLEx15CcE%3D&llr=vu4swwqab

The company qakadeals that is abusing ConstantContact is located in Sweden.
Bots have identified 100 sites that may have the same owners/developers as qakadeals.com

Finally I contacted ConstantContact via their facebook page and was asked to send information to a different email address for followup.

The response I received today indicates that it can take up to a week to investigate…
hmmm… and yet they say…
