Spam: "Sallyann Whitaker" / Toucan Data / toucandata.co.uk / toucanmarketinguk.co.uk / toucanmarketing.co.uk

Another spam from Sally Gaskell and Darren Gaskell, pushing their crappy mailing lists again. The Gaskells have been going out of business since 2012. Once recent spam run for this outfit claimed that Darren Gaskell has leukemia. Given the deceptive nature of the Gaskell's business (including this court case), then I would not necessarily believe it.

There is no active company in the UK called either Toucan Marketing or Toucan Data. There is a legitimate but unconnected business called Toucan Telemarketing Ltd which is nothing to do with the spam.

At the moment the toucanmarketing.co.uk seems to be down, but the toucandata.co.uk is up and looks like this:

If you think that word cloud looks awfully generic, then it is. The WHOIS details for toucandata.co.uk is anonymised, but the for the other domain it is:

Domain name:

        Sallyann Whitaker

    Registrant type:

    Registrant's address:
        Friar Gate
        DE1 1DF
        United Kingdom

Incidentally, the domain toucanmarketing.co.uk has exactly the same registrant details.
Friar Gate in Derby is quite a long street. There is no building number or name, and given that this isn't a real company then we can assume that any post sent to this address would not be delivered. Either the address is missing data or it is fake. The same address is listed on the website.

We know the spam is from Sally Gaskell if we look at the mail headers:

Are Sallyann Whitaker and Sally Gaskell the same person? Well, I know from the following CCJs against here that her middle name is "Ann", and in the past some people have suggested to be that "Whitaker" is her maiden name.

Incidentally, CCJs are public records. The value of these roughly equates to some of the prices charged for these crappy mailing lists.

Given that this spam is sent to non-opt-in addresses and the Gaskell's previous problems with selling mailing lists that they don't have a right to, I would give this pair of spammers an extremely wide berth in my personal opinion.

I fell for this and bought the lists.

of course they are useless. I asked for a full refund as per the email and obviously have received no reply.

luckily I bought using a credit card and If I do not get a reply today I will be mailing the card co with all of the details as well as their payment facility provider.

I I were them I would just make the refund.

Just sending my fourteenth request to sally@toucan-datauk.com to stop sending this nonsense. As someone who really did lose a loved one to leukaemia, I am truly disgusted by her approach.

I have told this company to stop sending me emails but they keep changing the domain name. I have had them from :-

Every time I block their domain name they create another to hassle me.

One day I received their email promoting their database 4 times. In fact this was when I emailed them to ask them to stop mailing me, so they sent it to me 3 more times.

I have no idea how to stop this company harassing me.

i keep getting their spam, and even reported them to Scamwarners, who have helped me by finding out stuff about them.

Thank you for this blog, there should be more info on these spammers/scammers.
