You’ve been forwarded to the voicemail for *text to speech voice* “xcelerate”.

It seems that Xcelerate is a shell company for the spammer to hide behind.

Spoofing the sender’s email address can be done. In this case Xcelerate / is highly likely to be involved. Consider the following patterns:

  • The Domain Names are registered through /
  • Each Domain Name is composed of two English dictionary words that seemed to be randomly chosen
  • Registration info of the Domain Names are the same
  • The Domain Names are recently registered / created
  • The voicemail for 773-328-8013 mentions “Xcelerate”

    I’m getting stupid AIG direct insurance mail from this idiot. I can’t FILTER IT! I’m putting things into other mails that delete them when I hit ‘run now’. But this one just won’t go away. I tried AIG in the sender. nope. I tried “As Low As” in all cases. nope. Thunderbird’s filter won’t work on it. What special thing did they do to make their crap mail immune? I don’t know.
