Remember this?, it referenced a domain that was a part of an HM Revenue & Customs phishing scam. As the domain was hosted by yahoo (the domain in question is failing to resolve as of a few minutes ago), I decided to fire them an abuse report. Alas however, their first response was laughable as it showed they'd clearly not read the abuse report;
What's actually more annoying than this, is that I received an automated response prior to receiving these, to let me know they'd received the report.
Frustrated with their response, I decided to reply with clarification that yes, I was aware that the e-mail had not originated from Yahoo, and that the domain in question (y'know, the damn thing I sent to their abuse dept!) WAS HOSTED BY YAHOO!. Given the netblock information for this particular IP space, only gives one Abuse e-mail address to send stuff too, it wasn't a case of my sending the abuse report to the wrong address.
Expecting to have someone actually bother to read my response, and then read the original damn report and respond to THAT, I was absolutely disgusted to have then received this, which came in a couple minutes ago;
Oh hell no - they didn't just reply to me with the same damn thing as last time did they? Yeppers - they did.
So I'd like to offer Yahoo some advice;
1. STOP using automated responses
2. STOP using form letters
3. READ THE DAMN REPORTS!!!!
Had they done #3, there would've been no need for #1 or #2.
