Ask Slashdot: Dealing with Anti-Spam service extortion?

Anonymous Coward writes | about 2 years ago

The Internet 1

An anonymous reader writes "I work for a European ISP, and lately we're receiving quite a few complaints from customers about not being able to send emails because of UCEProtect's listings. After checking with their site, we found out that our whole AS (!) was blacklisted. Their "immediate removal policy" asks for money, around 90 euros Per IP for end users and 300 euros for ISPs, and their site has bold statements like "YOU ARE LOSING YOUR RIGHT TO EXPRESSDELIST YOUR IP IF YOU ARE STUPID AND CLAIMING THIS WOULD BE BLACKMAIL, EXTORTION, SCAM OR SIMILAR BULLSHIT."
Could this be considered extortion-blackmail ? Has anyone else in Slashdot dealt with this service before ?"

That is extortion. Have your lawyer send them a letter asking upon what grounds they are identifying your company being spammers. Total cost should be less than $100 for a simple letter. Make sure it is sent certified.

I am not your lawyer.
