These spammers never stop! At the moment people are being inundated with ‘job offers’ from Wilfred at eurojobscouk.com. We have nothing to do with these scammers. We do NOT send out email. Period.
At little bit of sleuthing reveals that Chinese spammers seem to be behind all this. They registered this scam domain when the complaints started flooding in on the 16th.
The site is registered through www.bizcn.com, who have a Xiamen Cyber Police button on their website. If you can read Chinese, log a complaint with either of them. The chance that they will act is minimal as there are scores of complaints about them as well. They don’t seem to respond to any complaints.
It looks like ICANN is the only organisation that can stop this malarky as bizcn.com is accredited by them. Send ICANN a strongly worded message about this as they are responsible for giving Bizcn.com their accreditation and have the power to revoke it.

You can also ask your email provider to implement the Sender Policy Framework, which should stop the majority of spam. This recognises if the sender realy is the one they claim to be. In this case the alleged sender is eurojobs.com, but based on the ip address the message came from, it’s not. If that is the case SPF will simply bin the message as spam.
If you can’t read Chines, set up a filter in your email program for the content of the spam message. Enter ‘eurojobscouk.com’ in the filter for the bodytext, set it to delete and forget about it.

Select Finish. If you were to choose Next, then you could add some additional restrictions to the filter. But right now, we don’t need to do that.
Select OK to finish. All incoming mail will now be subject to the new filter as long as the Outlook client is running and logged in. To filter the messages which have arrived when the client is off, you must manually execute the rule from within the rules wizard.
