The link in the email goes to lormaneducation.net and then forwards immediately to lorman.com, which is a typical technique that spammers use to try to avoid getting blacklisted.

lormaneducation.net is hosted on 64.77.120.67 (Peer 1, US) along with these following domains which look similarly spammy:

The WHOIS details on the lormaneducation.net spamvertised domain are:

    Admin Name: Webmaster
    Admin Organization: Lorman Education Group, Inc.
    Admin Street: PO Box 509
    Admin City: Eau Claire
    Admin State/Province: WI
    Admin Postal Code: 54702-0509

Spam originates from 184.175.164.1 (US Signal) in a range suballocated to Lorman that you might want to block traffic from of 184.175.164.0/26.

If this company thinks that promoting its seminars through spam is a legitimate way of promoting a business then I would personally give their "seminars" a very wide berth.

Good morning,

We have been making major adjustments to not allowing mishaps of email marketing to offend users like this. Can you please contact me regarding this matter. I would like to discuss reconciling this and getting into your good graces.

Thank you,

Before you consider taking down this post at Loman's request, you should know that this comment by Ben Halverson is total BS.

They still spam people without asking, and they still don't have a removal link in their emails. I received something like 2 emails a day for two weeks, as recently as this month.

FYI, Still spamming, using a different email domain each time. Thank you for posting the list of domains.

For Mr. Halverson: If you didn't want to "offend users like this" then why do you have so many domains?

I started receiving spam emails from this group about two weeks ago. I do not know how they got my email address. Sometimes I get 4-5 emails a day. It is VERY annoying.
