AntiSpyware 2009, a known rogue application, has an interesting viewpoint on how their building looks. They probably are wearing rose-coloured glasses. :thumbsup:

Thanks to paperghost for the tweet that led me there...

How would the people in the warehouse feel if they received hate mail from AntiVirus 2009 users?

They are. They're using the warehouse's address.

I would be interested to know if it is the real address.

I would imagine some angry users would pay them a visit.



Thanks for sharing the info

That's fun to do with those scam pharmacies that send so much spam:

http://spamtrackers.eu/wiki/index.php/Inte...idence_of_fraud
http://spamtrackers.eu/wiki/index.php/Cana...ll#Fake_Offices

Actually, Antispyware 2009 is a glaring omission in the spamwiki, if anyone wishes to contribute an article.

It says 590-B... It's probably around back. Maybe by, or in, the dumpsters...

There's your clue. If you search that address in Google, you find a number of businesses, some of which use Suite letters/numbers:

Port City Computer Service
All About Sewing Incorporated 590-D
Personal Training & Nutrition
Fame Dance Center
TA Asphalt & Contractors
Chem Dry by the Bay 590-B PMB 6
AMD Contracting 590-B
Monogram Designs 590-C
The Paper Place Scrapbooking Company LLC 590-A
Scrap n' Shoppe 590-A
FoneZoneUSA.com 590-A
Seven Hills Fire District Volunteer Fire Dept. 590-B
Blaines Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning. 590-B S # 11
Rev. Steve Durkac Home Weddings 590-B S#95
The Don Moen Company Ministries 590-B Suite 3
2Squared Software Inc. 590-B Suite 10
Real Honest Guy, LLC Real estate solutions you can trust! 590-B S #29

Most or all are explained by this business at that address:

The Mail Room
590 B SCHILLINGER ROAD S
MOBILE, AL 36695
Phone: (251) 633-3068

This blogger noticed the address, but didn't pick up the fake photo of the building:
http://swatrant.blogspot.com/2009/01/antis...spywarebot.html

Whether anyone from AntiSpyware 2009 has actually rented a mailbox or shows up to pick up his mail is another matter. It's a good choice in case his domain registration is challenged - ICANN doesn't require physical addresses for registrants (or registrars, for that matter), so someone who sees a maildrop address is likely not to investigate any further.
