“I don’t understand why everyone thinks I am the scammer here. I am not George either. The site’s been sold many times.

Not according to Domain Tools it hasn’t.

There have only been 2 registrars since the site was first registered in 1994.

The original owner, Daedalus Howell, posted a notice on the scam.com site back in November 2002 that the site was being sold to the present owner:

Attention SCAM.com E-mail Users:

SCAM.com is now under new ownership. All current SCAM.com e-mail accounts will be terminated on November 30, 2002. The new proprietors have agreed to give current e-mail users 30 days to find another e-mail provider, thereafter, all user information, data and e-mail privileges will be terminated. You are strongly urged to make new e-mail arrangements as soon as possible.

We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patronage.

Daedalus Howell

Then, from the time of the sale up until about April 2004, the current owner used the site as a porno gateway as noted in an earlier blog.

The April 19 2004 page of the site saved by the waybackmachine shows: Threads: 1, Posts: 1, Members: 15, so that was about the time scam.com became “legitimate”.

    Excellent research. The BBB records and old domain tools pages have always reflected George D. was the owner.

      What? Say it isn’t so! And he’s one little item of interest about his postings over at scam.com as NNHeadlines. Oh, and he informed the mods NOT to ban the spammer (HIM) and deleted the posts. He (George) also said that NNHeadlines was a “friend of his doing some work for him.” But George Dranichak isn’t a liar.

    Awesome find, Dog Nose!

    Wow, he has 795 Posts on that site!

    See that I have to register to read some of them. Guess what my user name is going to be? Put another way, guess who’s name I’m going to use to register under? 🙂

    GFY – classy, real classy.

    Thanks again for the heads up.

    Awesome!
