eHygienics has been cleaning email lists since 2009. Never once have we hid our name or employees or our tactics on how we remove spamtraps, protestors, litigators and bounces. We share everything we do.

In fact, we are so transparent, we name each trap we find and give it to our clients for analysis. This idea of removing spamtraps and giving them not only in the PDF report but also in its own separate file (that’s right, you get the traps we remove and we name each one) was bound to get attention from spam fighters sooner or later.

In late 2012, eHygienics was growing and people were taking notice. We hired a CEO, Lara Wettig, and changed our corporate image. Immediately following, our new website was suspended due to a fake ROKSO listing created by Spamhaus because unfortunately NANAE (an online message board of spam fighters) received a spoof from Lara in which she never sent. Here is proof Spamhaus makes up fake SBLs.

eHygienics collects NANAE email address and uses them in their suppressions. Before eHygienics sends any newsletter, it’s cleaned through our own hygiene process. It’s clear that someone didn’t want eHygienics to succeed. This screenshot shows that someone either broke into eHygienics’ server or spoofed them under the domain name But who did it? It most certainly wasn’t us!

Was it a Spam Fighter?

The first to post about Lara’s spoof in NANAE was from spam fighter Kelly Chien of Chienworks.  Click here for details. Kelly took it upon himself to post all of eHygienics’ email address on his harvesting website. We have confirmation from another list hygiene company that Kelly spoofed them in the past. Kelly Chien also is the one who purchased right after it was expired. He claims it wasn’t cybersquatting, but what would a spam fighter want with that domain? is dedicated to stopping Spamhaus and their blackmailing practices. If you look at their website, Kelly makes fun of Andrew Stephens, the founder of StopHaus.

What is a competitor?

If eHygienics or Kelly Chien didn’t send the email spoof to NANAE, then who else sent it? Bryan Jenkins of ImpressionWise (eHygienics’ competition) is not a stranger to slandering eHygienics:

1.)   On, Bryan posted, “If James service is so good, why is he on the Rokso and can’t seem to clean traps out of his own mailings? 60 clients? try 10 at most. Who is he trying to kid?

2.)   At ASW 2012, Bryan disguised himself under a false name, introduced himself to James as an interested prospect and had James introduce him to James’ clients at the party.

3.)   At ASW 2013, Bryan Jenkins brought a bouncer to Todd McQuillin and had him forced out of MailerMeetup because according to Bryan, Todd wasn’t invited. Todd was invited by a team of mailers who wanted him there.

4.)’s website IP ( shares the same server as who’s IP’s belong to or are related to these spam fighters:,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, Why is there such strong relationships with the above spam fighters especially Spamhaus? The above information is real and factual at the time of writing this. Could ImpressionWise be working with the enemy or is this just a strange coincidence?

By the way, we have never done anything to harm ImpressionWise. We think highly of them and their system. We never have slandered them in any way. Was it competition jealousy? Maybe. It’s clear by the above actions that they do not like us.

And lastly, don’t forget that Mike Vickers, CEO of ImpressionWise has been sued in California for spamming.

Was it Spamhaus?

Did Spamhaus hack into eHygienics’ server and spoof them? It’s a possibility. It was right after this newsletter was sent out that eHygienics’ website was suspended for supposed spam. Spamhaus admitted to eHygienics that they created the SBL because eHygienics started a smear campaign against them. Here is the proof!

The newsletter exposed the real brains behind Spamhaus and the real names of the culprits. The above evidence should make our industry do some serious thinking. We know how to remove spamtraps. We don’t seed our lists to help spam fighters. We don’t spam. We don’t sell data. We are being stamped out because we are exposing something sinister in our industry.

We have been banned, smeared and taunted by our competition, NANAE and Spamhaus. We have resorted to using a free wordpress blog because Spamhaus hasn’t blackmailed them yet into suspending our account, however, they have coerced into taking our newsletters down with this:

“…We’ve received the DMCA notice below regarding material published on your site, which means the complainant is asserting ownership of this material and claiming that your use of it is not permitted by him/her or the law. As required by the DMCA, we have disabled public access to the material. Please note that republishing the material without permission from the copyright holder or submission of a valid DMCA counter-notice – or continuing to publish material that results in DMCA notices – will result in the permanent suspension of your site and/or account.

Repeated incidents of copyright infringement will also lead to the permanent suspension of your site. We certainly don’t want that to happen, so please delete any other material you may have uploaded for which you don’t have the necessary rights and and refrain from uploading additional material that you do not have permission to upload. Although we can’t provide legal advice, we’re happy to point you to copyright law resources that might help you make this determination…”

eHygienics isn’t going anywhere. We are a legitimate company with rights. We have every right to remove spamtraps, bounces, complainers and litigators from email marketing lists. The evidence above clearly shows that there is a war between spam fighters and us.

5 thoughts on “eHygienics Email List Hygiene Company – Under Attack

  1. James shows his flawed investigating skills several times in this article. If you look at the image he claims is “proof Spamhaus makes up fake SBLs”, you’ll see that there is actually no proof at all. What it shows is that Spamhaus gave James an opportunity to cooperate and he refused it.

    His “proof” that someone hacked into the eHygienics email account is similarly flawed. The only thing it proves is that he has an email with a lot of .ru links in it. There is nothing there that shows any sort of hacking, access, or falsified sending activity.

    Since i have never spoofed any company, James is lying when he says i spoofed that email and another email hygiene company. He is merely looking for a scapegoat and picked my name out of thin air.

    Likewise, pretty much every claim James makes against spam fighters is pure delusion with no basis in fact whatsoever. Every request that has ever been made of him to produce said non-existent proof has merely been met with silence, derision, or even more false accusations. He can’t produce the proof because none exists since it’s all his imagination.

  2. All the proof that has been given (my newsletter) was taken down by spam fighter trolls like Kelly Chien. I would be happy to supply the proof to anyone other than lying spam fighters. Spam fighters are cowards and will stop at nothing but to lie their way back into control while blackmailing service providers to suppress the truth.

    I offered the truth and spam fighters will deny their way through hell and back just like your own national politicians. If you like your website, you can keep our website. If you like your provider, you can keep your provider. We’ve heard it all before. And if anyone believes spam fighter Kelly Chien’s statements above is just as ignorant as the people voting the liars into office.

    Spam fighters have turned into the scum they were trying to prevent all along. Hacking, thieving liars!

  3. What Carner means by spamtraps, is he harvest forums and usenet newsgroups, finds “spamtraps” like JoeREMOVE@*****.com, he takes out the REMOVE. This he claims is an opt-in address. eHygienics will probe the clean address to ensure that it’s a working address.

    Carner is upset that he posted libel and copyrighted photos to Facebook and to his WordPress hosted “free” blog, and is surprised when the Copyright owner files a DMCA Notice of Infringement.

  4. James, i’ve read all your newsletters. Not once did you post anything resembling proof in any of them. You make claims based on your own suppositions with nothing to back them up, ever. You want very very badly to believe that “spam fighters” are the root of your problems because you are unwilling to accept that what you do is spam and spam support. You get yourself kicked off of providers because you violate their terms of service by spamming and supporting spam.

    Who ever said you can keep your website and your provider? No one has ever promised that to you. You were granted permission by your website hosts and providers to use their services, on the condition that you behave yourself and follow their acceptable terms. Your spamming and spam support services, and your posting of unsubstantiated libel violated those terms and therefore you caused your own loss of your websites and providers.

    Seriously, James, if you think anything you have is proof of something, you need to seek out advice and counseling from professionals you can trust, show it to them, and *LISTEN* to them when they explain why you are deluding yourself. Personally though, i don’t think you really believe any of it. You are merely trying to place blame on anyone else but yourself and are hoping you can get a few people to believe you.
