    Apparently it has nothing to do with Namedrive: IP address belongs to the broadband provider in India and spammer hides beyond anonymous e-mail.
    "Your Namedrive team" is a pathetic attempt to make it look little more legit I guess.

    Hi guys,

    The mail is from ND but the message is what the spammer put in his comments. DB, please can you confirm when you received this? As we have had a Captcha up on offer pages since a couple of days ago with a view to stopping this guy.
    They have a lot of IPs, so we can't just block the IP, sadly. DB, if you received it within the last 48 hours, please can you PM me the domain so I can look into it?

    Thanks.

    Ed

    Ah, this is spam via NameDrive's contact form... that's why it looks like it's been sent from them.

    it's quite easy to stop, by using captchas, "1+0=?" questions and many other methods. as per Ed's post ND is already working on it :)

    Hi DB,

    Did it happen in the last couple of days? If it did, then it seems they would have got around the captcha as well, which would be irritating, so I'm hoping it's an older "offer".
