ScienceDomain International and/or IK Press

Something calling itself “ScienceDomain International Ltd”, apparently of Third Floor, 207 Regent Street, London, W1B 3HH, continues to turn up in spamtraps. They have existed as an UK company twice, but both registrations have been dissolved (Reg. No 07794635 – Dissolved on 14 January 2014; Reg. No 08988029 – Dissolved on 24 November 2015).

RESOLVED: ESCALATION LISTING: Benchmark Email and iBioTool

Following Benchmark Email’s refusal to terminate the scientific spammer ibiotool.com / biotool.com, Scientific Spam have decided to create an escalation listing a week or two ago.

  • 216.4.238.0/24

is listed because of spam sent by Benchmark Email on behalf of ibiotool.com/biotool.com. The X-campaignid: is 3982832.

As of today,

  • bmsend.com

is also listed on our RHSBL. It is fully expected that this will cause false positives, so if ScientificSpam.net RHSBL users expect to receive mail sent by Benchmark Email, please whitelist accordingly.
