This is an interesting variant in that the lads involved use several throwaway domains for their dropboxes.

Note, that the phone number is the same as mentioned in the fake lottery scheme. Also the whois contact is quite a give away.

The second dropbox domain (where responses are directed to according to the "reply to" header) is europa-swiss.info, which looks pretty much anonymised and does not hold any meaningful content either.

Quite an old domain considering its past usage:
Well, each registrar handles such issues differently Wink

It's currently hosted at some shared hosting outfit along with a considerable number of other domains. As it is not relevant for this spam, I'm going to omit details here. Most likely the domain will move from host to host as it gets nuked due to spam complaints.

The only freemail dropbox is the one the spam was sent from, apparently accessed via the spammer's email application, which implies POP3/SMTP access as part of the freemail package. You can recognise it by the "received from" header.

A webmail interface would have added a
header instead, as the submission protocol was HTTP (via POST)

So this would amount to the following mugu addresses:

Gandi is said to be responsive to abuse reports, so sending an email to:
abuse add support.gandi.net

Should result in an ex-dropbox Wink.
