SpamFly.EU panhandling by e-mail

Recommended Posts

I found it particularly amusing to find an e-mail in my junk mail folder from simfly.eu, urgently panhandling for donations for their server repairs.You know, the guys that somehow got all our e-mail addresses after they were lifted from the AVSIM database by the AVSIM hacker?Maybe the truth is that they really need that money to pay their LEGAL bills!!! bwaaaaaaahahahaha :( CheersBob ScottColonel, USAF (ret)ATP IMEL Gulfstream II-III-IV-VColorado Springs, CO

Help AVSIM continue to serve you!
Please donate today!

the message in my spam box this evening.i believe the 'undercurrent' of the spam is a dig at avsim. review the comments posted last month from the 'hacker' stating the sever was a 'planned failure' and avsim was looking for a way to 'make a buck'.to bad the US 'anti-spam' laws would realy do some good. it is SO CLEAR that the email data was taken from a specific location without permission.hope the avsim case is moving ahead ... as i'd love to see the 'hacker's' head on a pike.--

From the very same source that completely falsely accused Tom of soliciting donations - and suggested he was doing so to line his own pockets! You couldn't make this stuff up!Well they ain't getting a cent from me!

Here is a copy of the email I received for anyone who might not have received it. Dear Members,We have just had to perform some massive upgrades on the servers, this has blown our budget and we are in desperate need of funding to pay our invoices.This is a plea to anyone that can afford to spare a few pounds/euros/dollars or anything we really need to pay these bills.The upgrade performed were:- New Windows 2008 Machine Purchased (Old one failed)- Server Memory Upgraded (Hence the huge speed difference in site)- KVM access for data centre- An additional 16 IP addresses for use with AFTS3.This is an honest and genuine fee, we are looking to make approximately 300GBP to cover this months invoices which are due now.You do not have to choose a package from the shop we will automatically issuing vouchers to anyone who makes a paypal payment to billing@simfly.eu if the amounts do not conform to what you can afford.You can also visit our Voucher Shop via visiting www.simfly.eu/shop.phpThis is an urgent situation though, and if we do not pay our bills they will eventually cut off our GIGABIT cables until we do, which means the site will just go off.Many Thanks SimFly.EU Teamhttp://www.simfly.eu

I got my unsolicited spam from them today, which also shows what utter b.s. their friggin' "unsubscribe" feature is since I used it to humor Mr. Slimeball himself during the last round of spam a month or two ago. I guess they can solicit for money regardless, since they seem to mold the rules to whatever they wish.Bottom feeders. -John

Yeah, I had a giggle upon receiving said email. Maybe the spam will stop once they go under? We can only hope.

I was very interested when I received an email from them on my home email account. I have not used my home email account to register or do any flight simulation business in years!! In fact, there are only two sites that come to mind that I may have used my home email on and that is Avsim and a small Virtual Airline that I am still with.I have not registered with SimFly and I certainly did not supply them with my home email account. It is quite possible it was still in the Avsim database though.... :( Things that make you say hmmmm.... :( ChuckCYXU
