More than 10 hours ago, an affiliate criminal circulated a spam comment around blogs and forums to advertise junk websites implicating Conseco Life Insurance. (See Screenshot 02-3.)

One of the junk websites sponsoring this profile spam operation is found at the domain of thetop10.com. The web server hosting this website is traced to the IP address of 208.237.254.7. The server location is Chicago, Illinois, USA. The organization named Emergency 24 may be responsible for the web server. And their website seems to be located at wwz.com. In fact, looking up the WhoIs registrations for both domains, they appear to share the exactly same contact address. (See Screenshot 06-7.) What a silly affiliate spam sponsor, huh!? Patrick Devereaux of 4179 W. Irving Park Rd., Chicago, Illinois… That’s one spam sponsor for webmasters to watch out.
