This organisation flags high volume transmissions and my IP got noticed after I sent out asems. It took a while to get cleared by castlecops and this org. They do a great job but don't get flagged!!!
On Wednesday, December 9, 2009 at 06:20 (GMT), Project Honey Pot achieved a
milestone: receiving its 1 billionth spam message. The billionth message was
an United States Internal Revenue Service phishing scam sent to an email
address that had been harvested more than two years ago. More than just a
single spam email, the billionth message represents the collective work of
you and tens of thousands of other web and email administrators like you in
more than 170 countries around the world. Together we have built Project
Honey Pot into the largest community tracking online fraud and abuse.
To celebrate this milestone, we sifted through five years of data to learn
more about spam and the spammers who send it. As a small token of thanks for
your help, we wanted to share some of our more interesting preliminary
findings. Click the following link for the Full Report:
- Monday is the busiest day of the week for email spam, Saturday is the
- 12:00 (GMT) is the busiest hour of the day for spam, 23:00 (GMT) is the
- Malicious bots have increased at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of
378% since Project Honey Pot started
- Over the last five years, you'd have been 9 times more likely to get a
phishing message for Chase Bank than Bank of America, however Facebook is
rapidly becoming the most phished organization online << SURPRISE?
- Finland has some of the best computer security in the world, China some
of the worst
- It takes the average spammer 2 and a half weeks from when they first
harvest your email address to when they send you your first spam message,
but that's twice as fast as they were five years ago
- Every time your email address is harvested from a website, you can expect
to receive more than 850 spam messages
- Spammers take holidays too: spam volumes drop nearly 21% on Christmas Day
and 32% on New Year's Day
- And much more.....
We have published it under the Creative Commons Attribution license, so
don't hesitate to share anything you find interesting. In the end, we
couldn't have gathered this data without you.
Thank you for all your help over the last five years. Here's to wishing you
happy holidays and a relatively spam-free New Year.
The Project Honey Pot Team

We have found that speed is tied to the content of the message. "Product" spammers -- those selling an actual product of some kind, whether it be fake pharmaceuticals, college degrees, or mortgage loans -- tend to operate on a slower cycle, spending approximately a month gathering email addresses and then targeting those addresses with a set of spam campaigns. Product spammers tend to hold on to email addresses longer and send on average several messages a week to each address on their list.
On the other hand "Fraud" spammers -- those committing phishing or so-called "419" advanced fee scams -- tend to send to and discard harvested addresses almost immediately. The increased average speed of spammers appears to be mostly attributable to the rise in spam as a vehicle for fraud rather than an increasing efficiency among traditional product spammers.
