The originating IP is 188.8.131.52 [Point North Networks / XO Communications, US] pointing to two spamvertised sites, downlinegoldmine.com on 184.108.40.206 and yourfreeworld.com on 220.127.116.11 [both at Hostime, Orlando].
Almost all MLMs are some sort of scam, and these are two sites promoting MLMs. But these sites also promote "safe email sendlists", but clearly sending hundreds of spam emails to spamtraps is clearly a poor definition of "safelist".. it's almost as if this activity is deliberately designed to generate spam complaints..
..and here's the thing. There's no evidence linking 18.104.22.168 to the alleged sender, and sending massive amounts of the same email to SpamCop.net addresses is either a massively stupid move, or it could be a deliberate attack on these sites by an unknown party.
In my opinion, both yourfreeworld.com and downlinegoldmine.com look like crappy sites that are worth avoiding.
