Default Unable to check whois

Hi,

I have a spammer that won't leave me alone. I purchased an e-book from her through eBay about 3 years ago and since then I get 2 to 3 emails from her under different domain names. I got really tired of it and decided to complain to her hosting company. I went to check on whois.org and for the last 3 days I get the "too many requests" message and no answer.

Now, I haven't checked anything on whois in months. Could someone be using my ip address to check looking for addresses to spam?

Has anyone else experienced this?

It could very well be she's not even aware of the spamming at all. The mail server could be badly configured to allow open-relay (typical issue) or they don't implement measures to check recipients or implement SPF (either on their end or yours).

Hi,

No, this one is an actual spammer. She changes domain names rather frequently and spams from all of them. She is very aware of what's going on....

Thanks for the input!
