We really don’t understand why

is allowed to stay on. Their lists, which are guaranteed to have been harvested from the PubMed, do not meet ExactTarget’s professed anti-spam policy in any way. They’ve been there at least since April 2017.

Interesting read in Bloomberg

Internal Medicine Review, Dylan Fazel, Reni Koen, “Lisseth Tovar”, “Kateryna Bielka”, ke-i.org, internalmedicinereview.org, zel.li

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). Nonetheless, they process personal data without having ever registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office, which in itself is a criminal act in the United Kingdom.
A blog entry on Nobleresearch.org (predatory publisher recognized by the Beall’s List for three years already) was prompted by a comment on our “who are these people” page by Aleksandrs V, representative of the Latvian ESP Mailigen.com who are currently providing services to this spammer.
LISTED: Scientific Research Publishing Inc. (SCIRP)
SCIRP is listed anew, on 220.127.116.11, after having hit our traps (again).
