I have been receiving e-mails also from this address and would like them to stop. I always click on stop these e-mails and it seems to not help. Please stop e-mailing me.....

When doing a lookup for the DNS in the (SPAM) e-mail it is registered to a Milt Sanders. Upon doing a google search for a "Milt Sanders" has a link to a Provo, Utah based technology company named SirsiDynix. Listed as a 500+ employee company. Based on this information, IF the "SPAM" were from this company we would have a legitimate claim to complain to a government agency as there are laws against this amount of spam.

The physical address matches up to a company called Red Mountain media at redmtnmedia.com . Trying to find their phone number to call them to take me off their email list. So far no luck.

Does somebody live in Provo who could go by there and see who is behind this bs? I will be traveling out west this summer and I plan on going in there and take care of some business......I can't believe the local TV station hasnt done a story on who is behind this. I get about 10 spams a day from this address.

I began receiving dozens of unsolicited spams from these people at the address you all cite sometime beginning in January this year, I believe. I now receive several dozen of the PER DAY. This has got to represent the worst single offender I have ever encountered . . . even beyond the porn and Viagra-types that once forced me to close one previous e-mail account. At least (so far) these are merely repetitive and annoying, and not particularly offensive and/or crude. But, please -- somebody who has the time, will or inclination -- get some gov't watchdog/regulatory agency to put the lid on this operation. It's absolutely ridiculous.

I, too, am receiving tons of e-mails from these miscreants. I have been deleting on a daily basis and can't seem to stop them. What alternatives do we have to get rid of them?

I started receiving spam 2 weeks ago, and sent each one back with "unsubscribe" and now get 100 to 150 a day from many companies, all with the 223 Bulldog Ave., Suite 551, Provo, UT address. Many are duplicates, but it takes time to wade through them to find the few legitimate e-mails caught in my spam folder. I gather writing them does no good. On another website, someone reported writing to them, filing an FTC complaint and complaints with the spammer's advertisers to no avail. Does anyone live in Provo who can go check out these miscreants? They probably aren't in the suite they claim.

I am having the same problem, I get 10 e-mails a day from them and click the link to unsubscribe but they still don't remove me! If anyone has found a number to reach them at I would love to give them a piece of my mind! I have searched but did not find a contact number.

I picked up on another website that the address given is a UPS store that rents mailboxes. So there's no point in going there.

I think the newest ones are coming from doctored domains, which all have rattlesnake +3alpha characters.com .

If you have yahoo, a filter on the sender 'rattlesnake' might divert them to the trash.

Clearly the attorney general has no inclination to prosecute them.

I askd yahoo if a wildcard rattlesnake***com would block them, but haven't had yet.

Most of the spam email is generated by a relatively few individuals. You cannot unsubscribe. If you pay attention to the address of the unsubscribe link (lower left hand corner of your monitor), it's the same as the sender's address. The only way to rid yourself of the spam is to block the email address of the sender. This was fairly easy to do in my Yahoo account, don't know what the procedure is like in other email programs. I blocked 23 addresses, and all of my spam disappeared. The 23 addresses were owned by 4 individuals, possibly less.

The Taos address listed above is actually the "real" Red Mountain Media. It is NOT the one spamming me and thousands of others. I did contact the real RMM and they informed me they have to wade through hundreds of emails about this bogus company that is using their name in their email banner. They responded immediately and included URLs and email addys for FTC, FCC and Attorney General and requested that complaints be sent to all of them in hopes that enough complaints would get their attention and start a official investigation. The RMM that is spamming me also includes a Utah address but it is not Provo it is 1524 West Kodiak Creek Ct. South Jordan, UT 84095. I have been clicking Unsubscribe for 3 weeks now. At the time these started I had just completed online transactions with CellPhoneShop, EMTC (also a supplier of cell phone products) and the PageBrite website. I strongly suspect the PageBrite site as the one that gave my email information out that ended up in Red Mountain Media's hands but since I had completed transactions with all three of the above listed sites on the same day I cannot be sure it was PageBrite. If anyone else being spammed has completed transactions on any of these 3 sites we may be able to narrow down the culprit that started all of this by selling/transferring email information. Just a thought.

ADDITION TO PREVIOUS POST-sorry I forgot to put this first

After getting 0ver 800 spams by noon, I had enough! I traced all the spams from these sources back to contradistinguishing.info
I searched out the domain and came up with this person as being this:(yes, it's long but that's what is there and I didn't want to leave anything out-Good Luck!
