Spam: Sally and Darren Gaskell / toucandatabase.com / toucanuk.co.uk

I've covered the Gaskells and their questionable operations since 2012. This latest email is just the same old pitch that they are closing up the business (which they never seem to do). I'm not going to repeat everything I've written about the Gaskells, but I suggest you start here if interested.

Subject: Full Data Portfolio

Hi there,

Due to our current circumstances I’ve decided to close the data business sales for a period of time and sell all my data as a complete portfolio for one fixed price.  The databases I have which will be included are:

Big Business File – 645,000 UK Businesses
CEO Contact File – 5,791 records
Academia Contacts File – 297 records
Corporate Companies 50+ Employees – 40,000 records
Directors Contact File – 188,895 records
Facilities Contacts File – 378 records
Finance Contacts File – 20,085 records
Fleet Contacts File – 782 records
HR Contacts File – 12,596 records
IT Contacts File – 10,000 records
Legal Contact File – 1,060 records
Management Contacts File – 85,747 records
Managing Director Contact File – 153,096 records
Marketing Contacts File – 9,574 records
Purchasing Decision Makers – 2,338 records
Training Contacts File – 862 records
UK Estate Agent File – 20,000 records
Residential Landlords File – 80,000 records

Data not listed on website but included:

High Net Worth Individuals – 307,502 records
Pension Transfer Leads – approx. 200,000 records
Personal Debt Leads – 10,000 records
PPI Leads – 44,641 records
Re-mortgage Leads – 400,000 records
Business Mobile Contract Renewals – 9,278 records
UK Hotels – 13,516 records
Manufacturing Companies – 48,884 records

The fixed price for the complete portfolio of databases was £600.  However if you purchase prior to Friday 8th January you can reduce this further to £300 by using the code Xmas when checking out.  Only ten copies of the Full Portfolio are being sold and therefore the offer may end early.

Your order is guaranteed for 30 days from your day of purchase.  Therefore should you not be happy for any reason during this time then a full refund will be issued immediately upon request.

To proceed go to toucanuk.co.uk and click on the Full Portfolio tab at the top.  Add the Full Portfolio to your cart and continue through the payment process.  Bacs details can be found in the product description if you would prefer to pay by bank transfer. 
All the data is supplied in excel format and is sent by download link to your email address immediately following your order.

Note the slightly different pitch. Here the business is closing for "a period of time" rather than permanently. How long is a period of time? An afternoon to pop to the shops?

The WHOIS details (as before) are a vague address in Derby which cannot be matched to an actual business:

As ever, the website is hosted by the Gaskell's partners-in-spam EKM Systems in Sheffield, this time on Mail routes through an smtpmark.com server but it originates from which is a Sky Logic satellite broadband connection.

Given the history of the Gaskells and this sort of enterprise, I would personally recommend giving them a wide berth.
