This is funny.

Professional spammers and blackhat profiteers openly boast that they own  KeyCAPTCHA.com antispam protection.


It was an open secret for a very long time  that its support@keycaptcha.com is in list of known spammers (difficult or impossible to unsubscribe from a service once subscribed) as well as there were reports that KeyCAPTCHA.com’s antispam protection collects Emails.. .


I’ve got a 3d-party Email confirming this (I leave contacts as they are publicly available on the internet)

Dear Gloria,
We are pleased to inform you that now the KeyCAPTCHA Service will protect your website(s) against spam as well as it will provide you with the opportunity to earn money by ad displaying in KeyCAPTCHA at your website(s).
Please, get to know with the updated Terms of Service at www.keycaptcha.com

For more information on amount of your income, click here .

Ad displaying in KeyCAPTCHA at your website(s) will launch on September 12, 2011.
An advertisement in KeyCAPTCHA will be displayed if we have advertisers who are willing to advertise in KeyCAPTCHA at websites whose subject matter suits your website’s subject.

If for some reason you are reluctant to earn money by our service, and you are unwilling to display ads in KeyCAPTCHA at your website, you have to go to your website’s additional settings atwww.keycaptcha.com and turn off ad displaying in KeyCAPTCHA at your website.

We anticipate a long-term and fruitful collaboration.

Best regards,

    Ouch… Real Spam

    I am always amazed at the extremely poor use of English by spammers. Clearly a high percentage of spammers do not have English as their native (first) language.

    When I see these spam mails, I get a visual impression of a sweatshop style operation based in Mumbai or Delhi with hundreds of poorly paid exploited workers tapping away at their keyboards sending rubbish mails to everyone their mail bots found on the net.

    And in the office next door a spam telephone call centre operation with hundreds of poorly paid exploited workers with headsets generating rubbish phone calls trying to sell unwanted services and products…

    Apologies for the spam comment, now to find the can opener for a spam sandwich
