I get a lot of spam. Predictably much of it Russian bride related. However, these clowns are spamming one of our site addresses.
Not just the odd one either. I am getting several a day from all different addresses. But they all point to the same site: dateritme.ru
So, it narked me off deleting this crap (which passes the spam filters incidentally) and I spent 5 minutes researching them.
Here is another one I got just now:
Hello dear, do you remember how we communicated with you? Long ago you could not see, I am Marina – with Russia, do you remember me? “Come to my page – let’s talk, I’m waiting!dateritme.ru
Rocket science it isn’t. But, it is worth noting for the benefit of Googlers.
So here is the data:
Header Analysis Quick ReportOriginating IP: 220.127.116.11Originating ISP: Hostway Deutschland GmbHCity: n/aCountry of Origin: Germany
It appears to come from Germany, but in there also is this IP in the headers: 18.104.22.168 which originates in Iran. Neither IP shows a city, so I am thinking they are likely just spamming proxies.
The reply email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org – again German. The domain keller-verlag.de traces to this:

That is a commercial site pretending to be a private individual.
The site dateritme.ru is hosted in Turkey at 22.214.171.124
The name “audrawajmi” doesn’t sound either Russian or German. Turkish or Iranian? Maybe. So dateritme.ru is a Russian domain, with the owners ID falsely withheld, hosted in Turkey, likely operated from Germany by Turks or Iranians.
Not the best place to seek out a Russian wife methinks!
